A raw peek inside an intimate dichotomy
Through this collection, Marta Moran Bishop gives the reader a raw peek inside the intimate dichotomy a victim of abuse must endure until they are able to process. Marta takes the entanglement of love and hates abuse manifests, and through the rhythm of her words, she unwinds her confusion. In a completely unadulterated tone, she smooths the drama and unselfishly shares the gift with others, a priceless gift. Her gift is without restraint through her beautiful poetry. This book is a deep reflection of a victim, a survivor and a beautifully empathetic human being that has risen above the perpetrators of the past and found beauty in people, nature, and animals. I so admire Marta’s ability to share her deepest and most intimate feelings and experiences while at the same time recognizing obstacles others encounter that are not hers personally.
From a heart wrenching abusive experience, a salute to soldiers, an inclusive look at God and a tree sleeping…this is a wonderful labor of love any poetry reader will appreciate.
Wee Three: A Mother’s Love in Verse, began with a few simple verses written by Helen Springer Moran, Ms. Bishop’s grandmother. Marta Moran Bishop expanded those verses, wrote others and Wee Three was born.
Wee Three, is guaranteed to make you smile, laugh, and remember the days of your own youth.
It is a highly entertaining read for both children and adults and will delight the reader with its simple verses. If you enjoyed, A.A. Milne or Robert Louis Stevenson’s children’s verses, you are sure to love Ms. Bishop’s, Wee Three: A Mother’s Love in Verse.
A Treat for the Kids
There’s immensely significant role quality literature plays in making the personality of the children. It gives them the ability to dream, ability to love and ability to hope in the world which is largely unmoved by their existence. It helps them cherish the beauty of life. It is important for parents to realize that children poetry is more than absurd rhyming words. They need to give new eyes to the child to observe the world with. That is precisely what this book does. It became a daily staple of my five year old and I just recollected that I have not reviewed this. This is an amazing book and it so delicately introduces the child to the beauty of literature, of beauty, of life. Do pick up, it will lighten up those nights when your little one snuggles on to you.
Marta Moran Bishop continues her journey in Sunlight and Shadows. This book of poetry, unlike A Poet’s Journey: Emotions, is a more thought provoking book. In its pages, she covers everything from God, to life after death, war, and the shooting in Newtown, Connecticut. Still she is able to bring to life the beauty and grandeur of her surroundings and make us laugh, cry, think, and feel.
Sunlight and Shadows will once again, take you on an emotional journey through life.
I believe it is how we deal with despair, tragedy, and joy that define us as human beings.
A Poet’s Journey: Sunlight and Shadows – A Tribute
This lovely collection of poetry is a wonderful addition to Ms. Bishop’s poetic imagery. Starting with Abused, an abrupt awakening to the plight of many women, through Lost Ones, an aching tribute to the Newtown Angels, and continuing through Civility she takes us on an emotional journey through life, ”…what could be said in one sentence is stated in a million words” concluding with “Honesty is good and helps, But not without courtesy.” From the great sense of loss in Shadows through the beauty and hope in Sunlight and Shadows, and the tribute in Honor to those who served and still serve, this is a lovely collection of poetry by a talented author.
