A lovely collection of poems about love, with a bite.
Poetry about love is ubiquitous and often, to put it bluntly, merely ordinary. This is NOT the case with Ginger Zyskowski’s collection of poems entitled Love and Lovers. Her poetry gives stunningly poignant glimpses into the private joys and pains of that most universal human experience we call LOVE. Full of original and touching expressions of love and loss, this collection shares the confidences of someone well versed in those most raw but meaningful moments of life.

While not fitness-themed, this collection certainly promotes significant exercise – exercise, that is, of emotions – sometimes poignant, sometimes perplexing, but never sedentary. Memories of relationships unrealized, uncomfortable or even unparalleled are awakened, leaving the reader in a place quite different than where they entered. The author has crafted her poetic thoughts through a powerful use of language, with phrases akin to color swatches on an abstract painting, allowing – no, demanding – the reader to ponder the meaning of verbal imagery that is both peaceful and provocative. A stimulating must read for anyone who thinks they have it all figured out…as well as those of us who acknowledge we never will!–
