Owl of the Moon - Wing Williams
Wing’s book “Owl of the Moon” was an enjoyable read for me. The book is nicely laid out and beautifully put together, even before reading his brilliant words. Though Wing is some ten years younger than me, his ideas and vocabulary seem ten years wiser as I read them. I love how he paints nature and experiences with the words he chooses which I can often relate to. Imagine, for example, an "incessant frog party" and what that would sound like. Along with nature themes, he deals with a break-up, Covid-19, and even an attempt at his life over the past year! It boggles my mind, the volume of high-quality poetry Wing writes. This book of 337 pages represents only a third of his output since his last two books. I will want to read his first two books next: “The Bear Within,” and “As a Wolf Breathes.” I always enjoy reading Wing’s Instagram posts too (@thehotwing).

I don't read much. In fact reading can be a huge challenge for me sometimes. On this blog I'll post reviews of books I am currently reading or have recently read.
