I have just finished reading Heather Grace Stewart’s latest collection of poetry, “Carry On Dancing” , for the second time and can say, in all honesty, that I love her work.
Again, she has produced a variety of pieces which reflect life in today’s world. She uses her experiences of life to offer us her view on how to survive and live life to the full; how appreciating the simple things in life can bring fulfilment. The poet obviously finds great joy in her young daughter and some of the poems refer in some way to childhood and seeing life through a child’s eyes; I like these a lot.
I was deeply touched by several poems in the book, especially “When I Finally Make Starlight”, “The Silence and the Sound” and “How He Held Her”. I chuckled at the humour in “Turning the Other Cheek” and “Tinkering”……in fact, there is very little not to like or love about this collection! I am so pleased that I own this book; the work within is well worth revisiting, time and again.
