Circumstances and experiences mold a person to be what he or she is today. The people encountered also bring color to his or her life, bringing lessons and cherished moments that will forever linger. From the heart and soul of a woman who has seen life and its different seasons and colors comes an anthology of poetry that’s brimming with emotions, nuggets of wisdom, and memories. In poet-author Frances P. Helmold’s “Book of Poetry,” she brings nostalgia to the front with her poetic pieces.

Reminiscent, personal, inspiring, her verses share memories of times gone by, senior moments, treasured dreams, rekindled friendships, life struggles, reality of mortality and borrowed times, and more. She sprinkles charm and grace to the ordinariness of things, making them poetic and lyrical. Also, she features beautiful lines that give tribute to America and Hawaii, and speaks of family, love, eternity, and happiness with much fervor and truth.

Filled with inspiration and sage advice, “Book of Poetry” is a memorable read that will make an excellent addition to anyone’s personal collection. Readers are sure to enjoy this meaningful tome and learn much from the author’s insightful, poetic reflections.
