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!!

Founder: Daily Wisdom Words, LLC. I love Poetry and am an Author as well.   There is a lot of meaning in the title of my book, Daily Wisdom Words, Volume l. My previous experience is in Sales and Marketing. Previously, I was in charge of Development through the Marketing and Sales of New Homes' in new home communities for close to 20 years.  I was a licensed Real Estate Broker selling/listing homes in the Colorado market.  While doing this, I hosted a cable network show called, "From Trees to Keys", my portion for Colorado Living Inc.. I enjoyed creating interview questions, working for Developers of New Home Communities, hosting Live on actual construction sites, describing and displaying on television camera various stages of construction as the home was built from start to finish. I interviewed various land developers, New Home Builders, Real Estate Brokers, and other people in the Real Estate Business for one year. Previous Experience: I was licensed through the "Securities and Exchange Commission" as a Principal for Limited Partnerships and sold them as well. I held a Series 22, 63, as well as License, to manage a brokerage firm called a series 39. I enjoyed running a small branch office of an Oil and Gas Company in Colorado for approximately one year. Hobbies: I have always loved Poetry and Writing.  I was declared "Permanently Disabled" due to Breast Cancer and CRPS-(Chronic Regional Pain Syndrome).  I began focusing on my writing. I volunteered for an online poetry community,  "Realistic Poetry" for approximately six months. I decided to start Daily Wisdom Words, LLC after volunteering for an online poetry community and thinking of ways that I would improve this concept and offer something for every KIND of #Writer:  Authors, Bloggers, Poets, Songwriters, Original Quote Creatives, and short story writers. I have two grown children, a son, 33, and a daughter 31,  who lives in Idaho with her husband. They have a son, my first grandchild who will be three years old, soon!  They welcomed their second child, Easton Jay into the world, 5/4//2021. Updates are necessary as my son is now married to my lovely daughter-in-law who is awesome.  She just gave birth to their first son on 5/5/2021, who is so beautiful having the name Logan James Leboeuf. This is her and my son's first child.  Hard to believe their child has a birthday one day ahead of my daughter and son-in-law's second child, Little E.  So exciting!!  I love children!
