Book Review: I have been following Dawn’s poetry for years. Poetry To Ponder by Dawn Huffaker is her most complete poetry book to date.

She looks at our world through the sensitive, creative, heart of a poet. For an example, she asks you these questions: “Have you ever wondered how the flowers feel when they bloom?”

Dawn wants to bring you joy into your life through her poems. I invite you to purchase this book and keep it in your pocket book, brief case, desk drawer, night stand for the very times that you feel stress in your life. Like a song that lifts your spirit so is the power of poetry.

About The Author: Dawn Huffaker is “from New Mexico where the turquoise sky meets the rugged mountains and carves poetry alongside the chimes of nature. Living in a home where books have always been adored, Dawn, the eldest of two daughters, fell in love with literature. Although disabled and in a wheel chair, God has bestowed upon her life soul music in the form of poetry.

I, Theodocia McLean (Cold Coffee) endorse Poetry To Ponder by Dawn Huffaker. Enjoy this book and all Dawn’s poetry books. I purchased this book print format from Amazon and this review was completed on September 24, 2017.

I Will Fly by Dawn Huffaker and Maria Kontaxis

I Will Fly by Dawn Huffaker and Maria Kontaxis

This is a collection of poems written by Dawn Huffaker and Maria Kontaxis.

They are meant to inspire or encourage.

Life can be challenging, and, perhaps, these poems can bring a smile or give comfort.

Nobody walks through life alone.

Book Review: Dawn and Maria are poets with message of hope and encouragement. Some of these 50 poems that fill this book are based on real life events and others are “what if’s”. They write each poem to inspire you in your daily life.

The best way to begin this review is to tell you about the poets, so I quote their Introduction as it says it best:

Dawn Huffaker is “from New Mexico where the turquoise sky meets the rugged mountains and carves poetry alongside the chimes of nature. Living in a home where books have always been adored, Dawn, the eldest of two daughters, fell in love with literature. Over time, she also responded with great passion to Computer Science in which she obtained a degree and founded a computer store which she ran for sixteen years.

Her inspirations are nature, her parents both retired teachers and the world. This has made her write poetry with a very calm but still exotic intricacy. Poetry and her love of Computer Science are like breathing to her. These gifts that God has bestowed upon her life have brought her pure happiness.

This is Dawn’s third book of poetry, having also written Flights of Fancy: Volume 1 published in 2007 and Flower Escapes: Book 1 published in 2009.

Dawn welcomes you to this book of collaboration with her friend, Maria and hope it gifts each reader a touch of happiness, hope and love.”

“Maria Kontaxis was born in Australia. She came into Dawn’s life via a mutual friend named Chase Von. Maria was living in Greece at the time. The internet made this possible through MySpace. There, Maria and Dawn exchanged poems and got to know each other. They found out that they had a lot in common.

Maria has loved to write since she was a small child. She has written poetry, lyrics, and stories. Many of these have been about nature, the ocean and animals.

Her talent and gift for interior design has been her lifeblood for many years. It has given Maria a chance to study life and see the colorful patterns all around her. This is also a component of poetry.

Maria’s philosophy is peace and harmony among mankind. She has lived in parts of the world were hate has reared its ugly head. Her greatest hope is that love will prevail. These themes are reflected in her poetry in this book.”

I invite you to put the cares of life aside and come fly with these two Poets and see the world from their vantage point. It has been an honor to be associated with Dawn Huffaker for years. Her gentle loving spirit, e-cards and words of friendship has made my world a better place.

The cover art is designed by Debbie Kontaxis.

Cold Coffee Press Endorses I Will Fly by Dawn Huffaker and Maria Kontaxis as they touch each reader with heart felt verse that brings with it a well of emotion for both them and the reader. Poetry is the song of love and expression which these two poets have mastered. They love the world around them, every part of nature and wants the best in everything to shine through, be immortalized and passed on. This book was given to us for review in a PDF format and the review was completed on September 7, 2015. For more information please visit Cold Coffee Press. http://www.coldcoffeepress.com
