Rhyme & Reason: My Life in Poems by Ilene Goff Kaufmann

Ilene Goff Kaufmann was born and raised in rural Lapeer, Michigan. She was adopted when she was four years old, along with two of her brothers. She began writing poetry at a very early age. It became a way for her to express her deepest thoughts and feelings. Her love for writing poetry continued throughout her life.

I personally have always believed that no matter how tough things get, to succeed, it’s important to find the positive among the negative in life. It may not always be easy . . . but it is possible. These poems are my positives. Some relate overwhelming pain and sadness . . . while others express the most joyous moments in my life.

As a single parent of three, I have had an extraordinary life. But even so I’ve had my share of heartbreaks. And I’ve come to know people who have experienced extreme highs and lows in their lives as well. With their blessings, I have told their stories so as to give them comfort and help them to heal and move on.

Ruin My Lipstick: R. B. O’Brien

Most poetry collections seem to follow a singular theme of either soaring bright imagery or the depressing darkness of bitter loss. Ruin My Lipstick follows neither.
I enjoyed Miss O’Brien’s poems immensely because she chose to write the way lives are lived, in bursts of brilliant sun interspersed with countless shades of gray. From the twirl of a yellow dress dancing in sunlight to the shadowed questioning of a dark night sky, Ruin My Lipstick delivers a vivid portrait of a heart well traveled and a life lived fully.
