Poetry has a way of making melody, and song, relaxing body and soul. Poems allow the heart to be touched and emotions to bloom. They can bring a great deal of joy. When one is burdened with household chores, a few simple words can make one see things should be put on hold until another day, as was the lyrics of My House.
The words of My House showed me many times how I was pressed for time, when in reality nothing is that important to put off until later. Housework will always be there but little children, and the things they do and say, come quickly. We should not miss their tender moments. The Gentleman gave me the tranquility I experience when I am near a lake and fishing for a day.
If anyone is looking for a quick poem to read then skip to the next, I did not find it in these. Instead, many I read more than once because of the thought behind each one. The one of Mom had me remembering when I visited my grandmother. I recalled the aroma that drifted in the kitchen, along with family gathering around the table, to share stories. Even though it was a tribute to Mom, my grandmother quickly came to mind.
Echoes of an Era is a collection of pleasurable poems permitting the reader to practically see through the eyes of the author. There are many lyrics the audience will be able to relate. Mary Muhammad weaves verses that emit joy, satisfaction and a longing to want more. She reaches deep into the heart and often I found myself with a grin. I like her style because her heartfelt words make her human, and not some stuffy person who does not know what they are really expressing.
