Maggie’s poetry is simple and easy to read. I’m not a scientist-type, so I read more love and womanly introspection in her poetry.

eBook provided me by Magdalena Ball, author.
This book by Magdalene Ball is her first full length poetry collection of many varied subjects including, dogs, cats, math, tending gardens to evolving insects; she writes about healing.  
In the Equinox, she says…the world opens her uterus and births the morning. Wonderful imagery in this and Pie in the Sky. I also enjoyed her Repulsion Thrust, the titled poem.   From one poem to another she takes quantum leaps into a woman’s experiences with loving, living in an imperfect body, betrayal and eventual forgiveness.
In the titled poem, Repulsion Thrust, she writes: No silk is strong enough, For your anger, It isn’t yours really, It is mine, Genetic instructions, writ In your knit brows
Perhaps, Maggie and I both live in the gardens between the house of Science and the house of God; picking flowers from both makes us happy. Only the use of metaphors in poetry can lead us off into many very different lands of thought and gardens of comprehension.  
In another poem, Black Dog One, Magdalene is waiting for a bus (this in itself is a metaphor for contemplating the passage of time; all is quiet except for the lonely howls of an old black dog neglected by his master; maybe, like most of us, she is feeling neglected and unloved herself;
in her poem, Faster-than-Light, she describes times passing by the sound of vocal cords no longer vibrating; what a great metaphor for the loneliness that comes with love lost!
In her poem, Omphalos , according to the ancient Greeks, Zeus, sent out two eagles to fly across the world to meet at the navel or the center of the world.  
 
She writes how illness creeps across the brow and travels to the navel or center of our being; writing surely now… you know something about yourself!;
 
 
 
We all learn from adversity that we’re stronger when it comes to surviving that which effects to the core of our very being.  
  
Black Dog Two reminds me how we humans are vulnerable to amnesia and Alzheimer’s when we age; how our childhood wounds are all reopened when we become our parents’ care keepers;  
 
Assault by a Black Hole is like many of her poems - - not fiction-based. There is not much we can do but watch and be afraid, as the universe evicts some galaxies to make room for new ones. We’re all hoping earth will be spared intervention from the phenomena of the black holes and all their chaos.  
 
I enjoyed the Idea Virus. Ideas are indeed, contagious like viruses. They crawl around the net waiting to land at an unsuspecting mailbox. The author says, tell me you want this, it won’t cost a thing, not up front anyway…
 
Maggie’s poetry is simple and easy to read. I’m not a scientist-type, so I read more love and womanly introspection in her poetry. The metaphors she uses may be space-age driven but what she doesn’t say is all about love, achieving wellness with forethought and love.
 
I am happy to recommend this awesome and varied collection to all ages, including families, teenagers and grandparents, with Five Stars for Amazon.
