I thought A River of Stones last year was brilliant. A Blackbird Sings is even better!
I bought the paperback version because I love to curl up with a book. And this collection of short poems does not disappoint. First there's the feel of the book - the cover is soft and eminently touchable. Then there's the design - simple but so effective detailing the bird and the moon surrounded by flowers - not literal but it works. And of course there's the poetry....
This is a collection for both readers and writers of poetry. The first part of the book contains essays by both Kaspa and Fiona; enlightening, encouraging and inspiring. Easy to read and simple to put into practice whether or not you write poetry.
The poems themselves, (fragments or small stones) are a delight to read. I love the international flavour and the richness of language used. It's like looking through people's windows to see a moment in time. I can't tell you which were my favourite poems, there were so many!
Buy it, read it, have a go!
And by the way, my small stone can be found on page 46!
