Fairy Tales & Mermaids
by Marne Sayre
Fairy Tales & Mermaids is a wonderful collection of life experiences written in a magical way. Love life, faith, with a splash or two of humor thrown in; a great addition to any book collection.
"Fairy Tales & Mermaids," by Marne Sayre, is a treasure chest of wisdom gained by the author through adversity and joy. The reader meets Grandpa, Poncho, Pa, Ginger and Pepsi, and her beloved dog Mikey. Each personal poem about the souls who peopled her world is richly sketched with love, understanding and humor.
The author also delves into life's tribulations as poems on pain, abuse, and loneliness are excellently expressed. Her poem, "Voiceless" is a prime example of how through poetry she found her outlet to speak of her sorrows.
The author's love of nature is a recurring theme throughout the book with "Windkiss" being this reader's favorite as it can be enjoyed on many metaphorical levels as well as a beautiful poem of the wind.
Another recurring undercurrent to her life is her personal relationship with God expressed in uplifting and inspiring poems such as her "Recipe for Faith." From this deep faith has come her strength to survive.
"Fairy Tales & Mermaids," is an apt title as the author in her inner self is still that little girl who believes. With each poem, the reader becomes more of a companion on this journey than an inquiring reader and at the end the reader finds a kindred spirit to call friend.-Joree Williams
