Moonchild Dreams by Nadia Gerassimenko

SONY DSC

I had the greatest pleasure of interviewing Nadia earlier last month and found her to be a very genuine and endearing person. Nadia’s Interview. As a thank you for her interview, she kindly sent me a physical copy (all the way from NJ folks!) with a wonderful note of thanks written in the back. Nadia didn’t request a review of her book, but here it is anyway. Thank you for your delightful little ‘Chapbook’ Nadia. 🙂

Moonchild dreams

synopsis

“Let us immerse into five imaginary and yet quite believable and relatable mythologies narrated by very mesmerizing Muses. The first to get you plunging are vocal melodies about strength, wonderment, and hope. The second is a struggle between love and its mirrored-self – an inevitable discovery of what true love is and how imitation fails to grasp its pure essence. The third are tales chanted forlornly by Sirens about love and loss and the unattainable, all lost in the abysmal sea. The fourth, less melancholy but profound nonetheless, are words of wisdom to live by from our Mother Nature. And lastly, you come to meet the Moonchild…a part of her inner world and dreams she dared to share.” (Nadia Gerassimenko)

review

This is a pleasant collection of poetry that makes for a wonderful Sunday afternoon leisurely read and not one to be rushed. It is finely structured, well-written, and perfectly balanced. …Balanced in the sense that it presents a blend of emotions as one moves between fantasy and reality.

There were several poems that I found myself reading through again or parts of them due to some recognition or relative sense. I really like it when a poem does that, even if it brings about a brief feeling of melancholy. When someone else’s muse touches you, it creates a connection.

Two of the poems which particularly stand out for me are: The woman with the child in her eyes which is a wonderful tribute to Kate Bush, and Chaos unto harmony which masterfully weaves titles and lyrics into the poem from songs that have been an inspiration to Nadia’s muse.

A very good four stars!

  2. The test of good poetry, like great music, is that one wants to repeat the experience again and again, with pleasure on each repetition. it seems this collection will pass that test.
