Michelle G. Stradford’s Waves of You: Love Poems draws readers into a romantic stream and provides a rhythm that keeps the heart pounding as she guides them from one strong emotion to the next, revealing a sophisticated love language and an uplifting and inspirational experience. Most of the poetry will resonate with anyone who has experienced deep love. The poems, which are divided into three sections — Waves, Currents, and Immersed — look at love in all of its facets.
The pictures evoked in the first poems include swimming with one’s love, holding their hand and bathing in their sun, filling the emptiness of loss, and submitting to the allure of their embrace. But as the reader progresses through the poems, the experience becomes richer, with instinctive movements, energizing gazes, and spiritual qualities of love, such as seeking safety in the lover’s heart. The poet sings of the urgency of love and desire, kisses that lead to the “highest peak of Sierra Nevada,” and a deep dive to the Pacific floor that fills her with awe.
Michelle G. Stradford’s gift is her metaphorical writing style, which she employs alongside strong imagery to bring readers through each layer of her love experience. Even when she speaks of intimacy, it’s as if she’s diving into the water and being surrounded by all that’s lovable. Waves of You: Love Poetry is a collection of poems written in an upbeat lyrical manner to celebrate the poet’s love, reflecting timeless and universal thoughts and emotions. The reader appreciates the numerous ways love is perceived, received, and given in the short poems, which are rich in symbolism, natural imagery, and simile. It’s a lovely gift for the person who shares your heart.
