If only we could all see the world as if through the eyes of a child. The combined intensity and simplicity and the wisdom of the ages, all wrapped up in neat little bundles. And to be able to write about life, to share our vision of the world about us. Now that is a true gift, one to be cherished and nurtured for the rest of one’s life. Halle Amor Moore may only be eight years old, but she writes with the power, conviction and wisdom of a person far older. Her compassion for life and her comprehension of so many complex issues in the world around her speak volumes for this young, aspiring poet. Her first chapbook, The Pages of Life, reflects on many issues, both simple and complex, including her heritage and the difficulties her ancestors faced as slaves, the beauty of the world around her, the cost and importance of education, dreams of what she will be as an adult, and, a very difficult concept, facing the dilemma of what a woman really is. All this from the eyes and heart and soul of a very young writer.

In all my years of teaching creative young writers, it has been a rare find to discover someone with this young writer’s passion and depth of wisdom, and the ability to write it clearly and with conviction. Halle Amor Moore is exploring as she grows up, and she writes from her heart and her soul. Her talent is best described in the kind words written by her father, H. Anthony “Savant” Moore, in the Foreword to his daughter’s chapbook: “To write is like the breaking of the sun in the morning, possibilities that only brighten your soul.” Very profound words, both father and daughter. Keep writing, Halle Amor; you have a rare talent that demands nurturing.
