BOOK TITLE: Midnight Flower- An Anthology of Contemporary Christian Poems
“Midnight Flower”, written by Shirley A. Mandel, shares the depth of her soul and shows how others can connect with the Lord in the depth of her soul and shows how others can connect with the Lord in their daily life. Each beautiful poem is written with the wisdom of a woman who is deeply connected to the Heavenly Father and to the universe.
While reading, you will enjoy the many analogs of how Ms. Mandel has taken her life experiences and connected them to the good and bad of Mother Nature. I especially liked, “The Stigma of Nature” where she has transformed the pattern of life’s degeneration into and back into resurrection via a new birth.
As I read “Midnight Flower”, I gather the author’s opinion of life is torn between the sins of man and the goodness of mankind that generates from God.
The poem “Fragile Frame” forms a whole new insight into the author’s poetry. As you read, you will be curious to know if the author is searching for answers. It is a short poem and relates so much of the author’s feelings.
I was also very touched by “The Bomb” that shares how painful it is to lose someone we love. The painful feeling of loss is reflected in this poem along with the hope it will get better through the everlasting light of the Lord.
As I continued reading, I noticed an uplift in the author’s poetry. I assume this comes from years of hardship and wisdom gained, and knowing happiness is around each corner.
Reading “Midnight Flower” gives so much insight into how much the author has depended on the Lord through the trials and tribulations of life and reading her poetry will bring inspiration in your daily life. When you read this book, you will be glad you did, because of the deep insight possessed by Shirley A. Mandel.
This poetry book is unique and deep and is a must-read for anyone looking for a stronger faith in life and the Lord, from a writer who’s amazing wisdom you gain insight from. I happily give this book a five-star rating!
