So I’m a bit late posting this. I’m supposed to be posting the 25th description of the “Book Photo Challenge” tonight, but, as you can tell, I’m a couple days off schedule. University takes all the blame for this! But none of that nonsense now, let us go forth!
“Short but sweet”. Hmm… My first thought on this is to go with Perks, but, although it is short, it doesn’t really fit the term “sweet”, and I’ve already mentioned it at least 3 times on this challenge. So! Something that’s short, but is also sweet.
Something “short but sweet”, is:
Love & Misadventure by Lang Leav. This is a book of poems, and they definitely fit the description “short but sweet” perfectly. The book is short and the poems in it are short as well, and they’re also sweet. In their own way. Their shortness is what makes them sweet, I guess.
They look tender, her poems. She uses very little words, but they’re enough to say exactly what she means. They’re short poems that feel full. They don’t feel empty. It doesn’t feel as if there is more silence to them than there is voice. They feel full. Full of deep-seated thoughts and emotions. They are just that. I think that, because she uses a brief amount of words to fully convey what she has to say, it means that she fully and deeply understands what it is she is writing about.
I enjoyed this book of poems by Lang Leav a lot, and I look forward to reading her next book “Lullabies”.
Here is one of my favorite poems in “Love & Misadventure”:
