Review: Dizzy in Your Eyes: Poems about Love (Mora)

Title: Dizzy in Your Eyes: Poems about love
Author: Mora
Pages: 165
Genre: Poetry, Love
Rating: 3 1/2 out of 5 stars

I have been wanting to read this book for awhile now. It sure did not take long to read this collection of 50 love poems. Yes, there are LOVE poems in this collection, but there are also poems about loving a pet, a sport, and music. The author writes in a variety of poetic forms (Tanka, Cinquain, Letter, List, Tercet, Sonnet), especially free verse (unrhyming). The book title is taken from a "Love Haiku" included in the collection. And because the poet is bilingual (Spanish/English), many of the poems include both languages. Definitely time well spent...especially around Valentine's Day!
