    I like this collection a lot. Like water, I was a fine refreshment I had today, a light drink that made me smile. I always love reading poetry that are personal, anecdotal and bittersweet. This collection is one of those. It made me see through the poet's eyes. I could have be happier if I read more of the love poems, but those romantic ones in this collection are rendered beautifully. I would definitely look forward to more poetry or other books by this author.
