“They Won’t Shut Up” is Cindy J. Smith’s second book of poetry in which she explains life as she sees it. Her poems deal with emotions and conflicts that are universal to the human condition – pain, love, suffering, joy and loss. Cindy J. Smith writes of dreams and magic, she writes of the moments we live that are woven subtly into the fabric of our lives and nature’s beauty.
Several special poems have been added to the end of “They Won’t Shut Up”, written by Jasmine McMurtrey Reindl, Smith’s late daughter.
Smith writes poems to her friends, about her friends and family, warm, full of feeling and caring.
She is not just emotional but also philosophical at times or witty, e.g. when she addresses an Adonis.
The range of emotions and subjects portrayed is wide, Cindy seems to be inspired/ dictated the words by those voices that won’t shut up everywhere and 24/7, which makes for a great selection.
Some of these gems could even be pop song lyrics, I advise the author to seriously look into this. A selection that holds something for everyone. Well done.
Wouldn’t we all like to be able to put our thoughts on paper and have them written exactly how we feel? Ms. Smith has done it for us from seasons to children, feelings of loss and hope. She has poems that will make you think, one’s that will make you smile and so on. I love her work and I found so many as favorites as I hope you will as well.
Buy this. Its fantastic!
