Cherry Pit by Lynn Burton (2018) is Burton’s debut poetry collection available in book format. Burton’s love for poetry shines through and I’m thrilled to be able to share it with you!
This collection left me feeling thoughtful. The sadder poems are poignant, but not horribly heavy. There is a good balance between happy love poems and thoughtful life poems. My nickname for the collection is Life, as Told in Poems.
Book lovers will especially enjoy Personal Library. Other favorites include Against the Senses, Taste of a Poem, and The Fall.
Burton made me laugh at times, and sigh at others. Whichever it was, it was done with mastery over setting, and immersive senses.
The title poem, Cherry Pit, rates a solid “Wow!”
Poetry lovers, we have a new treasure in this author.
Thanks for reading,
