Reviewed by Melissa Tanaka for Readers' Favorite

Moon Kissed Musings by Tracy Seiden is a beautiful collection of poetry. Using the ever flexible form of free verse, Seiden conveys feelings of love and loss, leaving readers feeling as though they’ve been hollowed out and passed through a magnifying lens before being deposited back in their own bodies.

The poems alternate between first person and third person point of view, which is something that I thoroughly enjoyed. While it is nice to get inside a person’s head and see their views on love, there is something to be said for being able to sit back and observe moments of love and, consequently, the loss that sometimes occurs. Despite these reflections on loss, the collection takes on a hopeful tone and in doing so emphasizes the importance of cherishing the love you have or fighting for the love you so desire, sometimes with that love being the love of yourself.

One thing that I particularly loved about this collection was that it did not just focus on one type of love, that being love for another person, but also the importance of self-love and the ability to reconstruct oneself after being hurt by another. Seiden’s poetry evokes strong images that resonate within you, whether it is the bittersweet memory of a past lover or simply a feeling of completeness. Her words often reflect the connection between people and nature, thus conveying the idea that perhaps all of us are a part of something larger than ourselves. Just what exactly that may be is up for debate, although I have a strong feeling that it might be love.
