I am an avid reader and enjoy most categories of books. In reading Spilling Ink by Darrielle Cresswell I was invited into the author’s life to share in the wonder, pain, grief, joy and humour that is the human condition.
I was extraordinarily enchanted from the outset, quickly submerging myself in the harmony and flow of the diverse poems. It was similar to having a heart- to – heart with a friend over coffee.
The author sums up in ‘ Too Late’ how many in the nursing profession feel when they want so much to tend to every patient but don’t have the time due to other demands and shortages. Even those not in the profession are able to comprehend with the flow of the authors ink. However, the very nature of this collection is heterogeneous and will appeal to all. To sit at one’s writing nook and share with the reader wit, heartbreak, poignancy, sorrow ,grief and whimsy is not only an accomplishment ,but a gift to us all.
This collection of poems is a MUST READ.
