Book Review: ‘Chasing the Chalice’ by Laura C Berlin

23350012In this collection of verses, Berlin has set out to explore the different ways in which one can express love.

On the first reading, these poems seem quite simple, with alliteration the most prominent technique.

However, as one reads and thinks more deeply, the alliteration gives way to more contemplative thoughts and reflections on the moments and lessons captured in each poem.

Among the many lovely lines delivered here, my favourites are “the harmony of heaven is hypnotic” and
“Underlying you is the universe,
unsurpassed.
Unfathomable.
Unquestionable.                                   ratings-1482011_960_720-3

Reading this book was a lovely way to luxuriate in language
and find pleasure in poetic pensiveness. unnamed

‘Chasing the Chalice’ is available as ebook or paperback at
