REVIEW:

 
“PORCH POEMS” WRITTEN BY Shirley Mandel Satterfield  IS A LOVELY COLLECTION OF POETRY ABOUT NATURE AND GOD INTERTWINING TO CREATE SITTING ON A PORCH DURING MORNING.
SATTERFIELD HAS WRITTEN SEVERAL “WORKS OF ART” PORTRAYING GOD AS THE ARTIST AS MOTHER NATURE PROVIDES ABSTRACT COLORS.  ONE OF THE FIRST THINGS WE REALLY ENJOYED READING “PORCH POEMS” WAS MANDEL’S ABILITY TO USE HER OWN PAINTBRUSH WITH CHOSEN WORDS IN EACH POEM.
 
SATTERFIELD WRITES A COLLECTION OF BEAUTIFUL POEMS TAKING US HOME BOUND.  WE CAN’T HELP BUT APPRECIATE HER INSPIRING DETAIL OF EACH THING YOU MIGHT SEE WHILE SITTING ON A PORCH BREATHING IN THE MORNING AIR OR WATCHING THE SUNRISE.  MANDEL CARRIES YOU ON A JOURNEY THROUGH GOD’S CREATIONS WITH A POEM FOR EACH SEASON.
 
SMELL THE AIR, FEEL THE WEATHER, APPRECIATE THE SUNSHINE.  WE STRONGLY SUGGEST READING ONE OF THESE POEMS EVERY MORNING TOUCHING YOUR DAY WITH A SENSE OF HEAVEN.
SAY YOUR MORNING PRAYERS OR MEDITATE BEFORE READING ANY OF THESE “CREATIVES” IN THIS WELL ILLUSTRATED COLLECTION OF, “PORCH POEMS”.
 
WITH A POEM SHARING A WONDERFUL VISUAL, DIFFERENT SCENES PAINTED BY SATTERFIELD ARE WORDS WHICH FLOW TO THE HEART,  SATTERFIELD WILL TAKE YOU ON A SIMPLE JOURNEY WHILE READING THEM.  THERE ARE SO MANY BEAUTIFUL, ORGANIC POEMS REFLECTING THE SIMPLE THINGS IN LIFE WE ALL TAKE FOR GRANTED, BUT SATTERFIELD DOES NOT.  SATTERFIELD REFERS TO.THE MORNING CLOUDS BEING SHAPED LIKE “ANIMALS” IN HER POEM TITLED, “SOMETIMES A TURTLE.”  ONE OF OUR FAVORITE POEMS FROM THIS BOOK IS CALLED, “MORNING BIRD”, WHICH INCLUDES THE FOLLOWING VERSE:
 
                              “I KNOW THAT MORNINGS ARE QUIET FOR A REASON,
                                IT’S THE STILLNESS OF A 24 HOUR SEASON.”
                                WHEN OUR MINDS HAVE BEEN SETTLED BY REPOSE,
                                AND OUR FEELINGS ARE COMPOSED.
 
THIS VERSE WOWED US, TAKING OUR MINDS INTO SIMPLE, UNINTERRUPTED THOUGHTS WE ALL HAVE WHILE WAKING UP FIRST THING IN THE MORNING.  WE ALSO LOVED SATTERFIELD’S POEM CALLED, “MOTHER MORNING”. THIS POEM SHARES WITH US A LINE THAT STICKS; “AS MOTHER MORNING DONS HER ROBE”.  YOU LITERALLY VISUALIZE WHAT IT MIGHT FEEL LIKE IF MORNING ACTUALLY WORE A ROBE AS MOST OF US DO UPON WAKING UP.  ANOTHER POEM, “THE BOSS”,  ALSO STANDS OUT, SUMMING UP THE QUIET POWER A “WOMAN OF HER OWN HOUSE” HAS.  MANDEL BRILLIANTLY WRITES YET ANOTHER POEM
TITLED, “MUSING IN ISOLATION”.  THE  UNIQUE WAY HER WORDS COME TOGETHER CREATING A VISION IN OUR IMAGINATION IS SHEER BRILLIANCE.
 
ANOTHER POEM SATTERFIELD INCLUDES, :”LOOK IT’S SNOWING” MENTIONS EACH SNOWFLAKE BEING UNIQUELY SHAPED WHEN FALLING FROM THE SKY.  WE FEEL THE COLD TASTE OF A SNOWFLAKE WHILE READING THIS, IF A SNOWFLAKE HIT OUR TONGUE.   IN THIS POEM, SATTERFIELD TALKS OF A WINTER’S MORNING PLANS TO GO OUT, CHANGING QUICKLY INTO PLANS OF STAYING HOME BECAUSE OF A COLD WEATHER STORM.
 
WE HAVE DONE REVIEWS FOR SHIRLEY MANDEL SATTERFIELD IN THE PAST, LOVING HER WONDERFUL POETRY AND WORDS. THIS IS OUR FAVORITE POETRY BOOK BY FAR.  “PORCH POEMS” EASILY GETS FIVE STARS. SATTERFIELD TAKES POETESS INTO A NEW LEVEL OF MEANING.  “PORCH POEMS” BY SHIRLEY MANDEL SATTERFIELD IS A NECESSITY ON YOUR NIGHTSTAND FOR EACH MORNING!  IT IS A MUST TO BUY IF YOU LOVE POETRY YOU CAN FEEL, TASTE AND TOUCH WITH THE WORDS CAREFULLY CHOSEN.  SHIRLEY MANDEL SATTERFIELD CRAFTING “SHEER BRILLIANCE” WITH CAREFULLY CHOSEN WORDS IN THIS SUPERB COLLECTION OF POEMS.  BUY NOW!!
