Ms. Navajas has written an ageless and captivating book of poetry about love, loss and forgiveness!

Reviewed in the United States on September 14, 2022

I was intrigued when I saw that a poetry book had made it to Amazon’s number one spot without even being available to buy. As a poetry lover, I wanted to see what the author, Michelle Ayon Navajas, had conjured up for others to buy so quickly.

It didn’t take long for me to get caught up in her book of mostly freestyle poetry. It was like reliving my first love – how I completely fell in love, and seeing him with someone else was like experiencing a teenage death for me. She captured how you question everything you did or didn’t do and what it does to your self-esteem. She found a way to write beautiful prose that took me through all those emotions I had at seventeen. When I realized how ageless her poetry was, I appreciated why her books had become so popular.

Another reason her writing is so captivating is that each poem in this book can stand on its own, but the progression of poetry also tells a story. This is no easy task. I also found all of her work to have excellent rhythm.

There is a very endearing section of the book where she writes to her deceased father, who encouraged her writing when she started at age ten. This section brings the reader to tears, and, appropriately, the book is dedicated to him.

You can tell that the author has a big heart. Several poems in the book were written by other authors, allowing them to have their work highlighted on a bigger stage. Plus, it is always a joy to read someone new that writes beautifully. A couple of pieces talk about racism and the emotion of seeing it after attending church services. As an unexpected bonus showing her talents as a former educator, the author also took time to explain what kind of poem she was writing when she changed forms.

This is her seventh book, four of which have been best sellers. Now I see why. I would love to sit down and have coffee with this brilliant young poet – I know it would bless me. Joni Caggiano
