    Two Truths Wise is a collection of poetry, organized into sections such as "Heart Matters" and "Kindred", and at the end of each section there is a short piece of prose related to the section. As a collection, the poems reflect upon a woman's "life lived" - events and situations and emotions lived by a modern day woman. In the "Heart Matters" section for example, is a poem about a possibly risky love; in the Reminiscing section, the poem "Con Man Time" describes that feeling we all have that we a Two Truths Wise is a collection of poetry, organized into sections such as "Heart Matters" and "Kindred", and at the end of each section there is a short piece of prose related to the section. As a collection, the poems reflect upon a woman's "life lived" - events and situations and emotions lived by a modern day woman. In the "Heart Matters" section for example, is a poem about a possibly risky love; in the Reminiscing section, the poem "Con Man Time" describes that feeling we all have that we are often faking our way through our days, and that we are far more fragile than the mask we face the world with presents us to be. The Scruples section has thoughtful poems that make us look closely at topics we are often uncomfortable with, such as homelessness and race-relations. The Kindred section contains poems about universal womanhood, and the bonds that women share. In some ways, this book is, in fact, a look at 20th/21st century womanhood, through the eyes of a thoughtful and observant woman who has endured and celebrated things in her own life, but has also borne witness to women around her and women in international news headlines. My reading is that the author has discovered "two truths" that made her wise in life. What are the two truths? I have a couple guesses but I'll keep them to myself. Perhaps this collection of poems and stories and life-observations will reveal different truths, to different readers.

    I enjoyed this collection of poems a lot. Each poem is very sensible and gently brings your focus on particular emotions. There are quite a lot of parts that make you stop and think. For instance, “Search deep in your heart to the source of your pride” or “It is much harder to give love, affection, respect and kindness than it is to give money.” Beautiful! I loved its warmth and candidness. It was soothing to read something of such good quality, for a change.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this beautiful collection of short stories and poems. There were a couple of stories that had me giggling a bit, especially the one about the two older friends. Some of these really made me stop and think, while others just made me smile. Overall, this was a great read.

    Giveaway Winner Some of the poems and stories I loved, more than not, sadly fell flat. It was difficult for me to make it through the entire book.
