The poetry was a gift, the wisdom had to be earned.
What is it about poetry that moves us? For some, it is the stark reality painted into the mind with the elegant brush of the writers' words and form. It shows us life; reaches down and touches us in places we've let sleep; gives us insight into the world we live in. In the words and sounds of Katherine Rodriguez' Poetic Wisdom, we see the urban landscape in ways we may never have imagined; we reflect on our own feelings of love, companionship and longing; we see and feel life, full of passion and resonating with humanity. Rare is the gift of a true poet, yet here in this book is a true rending of her life; full of passion, beauty, and of course, Wisdom.
