    I was whisked through this book of poetry as if; gliding muses picked me up gently to deliver me the right direction. I definitely know what I kept feeling. I felt the night air, the sea, memory, one ghost or many reliving those moments; the last ones trying to feel what they once did feel. This is a beautiful book. It touches many themes and treats them equally and even tops it off with some cat poems. Lovers of black cats, fat cats, and cats with funny names will find a smirk here. Part of the I was whisked through this book of poetry as if; gliding muses picked me up gently to deliver me the right direction. I definitely know what I kept feeling. I felt the night air, the sea, memory, one ghost or many reliving those moments; the last ones trying to feel what they once did feel. This is a beautiful book. It touches many themes and treats them equally and even tops it off with some cat poems. Lovers of black cats, fat cats, and cats with funny names will find a smirk here. Part of the beauty and the goosebump inducing factor of a few of these is the death theme. The poems talk about death lovingly and easily. There is a reverence about it as if one can awake from death as if from sleep. It is nature and human emotion tied in to the condition of the soul, perhaps. I just want to say, it still seems scary in some places. Lol. Also I won this in a Goodreads giveaway and did not have to write a positive review. In some poems; I even felt even the living imagining the last of their living selves as they let go. Were those moments in those particular poems .... dreams, imaginings, despairs, memories ? Some felt like ghost stories to me. Hauntings is what they felt like in certain places, but that is fine with me. I certainly felt the influence of Poe. I felt and saw Sylvia and her considerations and thoughts, and I loved them. The haikus were a surprise and lovely and a delight and I was happy to see them. The moon, the sky, and intimacy are all of great reverence to time and healing the heart. This is what I got from it. It can be deeply gothic or it can be amazingly full of light and rebirth. It can be both. For those of you who love vampires, I dare say you can find them there. It is all in interpretation. The art is amazingly beautiful on the cover and imbues the mood of the poetry perfectly. I’d put more in ;). It puts one under the spell, so as it were. Best of luck to our poets ! Reach a bit more for that mystical element. It works ! I highlighted some of my favorite parts and made them visible. ❤️ Recommended! Thank you Goodreads for this Kindle copy that I received in a giveaway ! I write this review of my own free will and enjoyed every second !

    I received a digital copy of this collection through a giveaway hosted on GoodReads. Reflections is a great example of how two different writers can handle the same theme in different but equally enjoyable ways. Throughout the book, Neill and Reiter each take the same theme and write one (or sometimes more) poem inspited by it, printing them side by side. No two poems are ever completely alike (just as they rarely are in the real world) but each is still undeniably inspired by the same subject.

It would be an interesting study into poetry analysis and composition, but is equally enjoyable for just a casual read for anyone interested in the subject. It could even serve as inspiration to craft your own poems on each theme!

    I found the poetry within the book to be fine enough, but I felt that it lacked much heart. I understood going into it that the poems would be crafted around specific themes, but it read to me like an assignment one might have turned in during school. The poems were crafted to fit the themes and in most places they did, however it seemed clear to me that that was the only point of them. The poetry was written only for that sake and, in my opinion, held little emotion or greater meaning.

The poetry was written only for that sake and, in my opinion, held little emotion or greater meaning. It was almost as though a teacher had assigned a theme around which students needed to write a poem, and this book was simply made up of what the poets had turned in. They were quite bland and cut and dry in most places, leaving me feeling unsatisfied. When I read poetry I want life, soul, feeling. I felt that this book was lacking that.

    I absolutely adored this little collection of poetry. The two poets have similar styles, both dark and sultry, with gorgeous visualization. *Won through Goodreads
