As I'm melting away
In the fruits of your musings
The sweetness caresses
My melodious heart
And I'm lost in the sway
Starry eyes are perusing
As my soul undresses
Dissolves in your art

"Drop of Heaven"
I've come to your water
To quench my dying thirst
To satisfy my growling hunger
And as I drowned in your liquids
The overflowing juices of your mind
My needs have been met
I'll forever swim in your water
And drink up every drop of heaven
That you paint with your delicious love
A passion that burns with magnificent power
One that stands atop the highest mountains
And flows through the raging rivers
One that penetrates my beating heart
And energizes my sensitive soul
One that will forever be
The medicine of my life
© 2007 Lena Kovadlo
Review by Poet/Author James L. Finley
"Sitting in the Cathedral of Life and gazing into a beautiful stained glass window, wonderful stories unfold with vivid and colorful pictures. “Pieces of Me”, is my cathedral and Lena Kovadlo is the artist that creates beautiful stories in glass. With the eye of an artist, the songs of a lyricist and the heart of a poet, pieces of glass form a whole. As I am drawn into the cathedral to walk the halls and read the stories in glass, I am drawn into “Pieces of Me”, to walk the halls of its pages.
“Pieces of Me”, is pieces of her; held up to a mirror it is pieces of you. Life’s stories unfold with beauty, mystery, and adventure. Within the intrigue of its pages, you are captured and whirled into a breathtaking journey of poetic wit. We take a romp through nature full of delights big and small, happy and sad with the feeling of sweet raindrops touching the skin on a hot day. Our romp through nature relaxes and opens our minds in preparation for the valleys and peaks of love. Poems to warm your heart and for some, poems that will drain your eyes are delivered by the loved and loving. As I am a man of passion and dreams, I will confess with small tears in my eyes, this is my favorite room in the cathedral. With hanky in hand, Lena enters our minds with “Mind Twister”, a section well named. Moreover, as a reminder that she is not quite done with our hearts, she opens the section with a heartbreaking poem aptly named “Torture”. Much more than love fills the philosophical, metaphor rich dark section that reaches into the corners of our minds. Then with the mercy of an enchanted good fairy, we get a breather and a closer look into the author’s mind. “Fruits of the Mind”, is a colorful tapestry in stained glass, a powerfully thoughtful section. If you have a lustful mind and appreciate a beautiful woman bare, “Rants of the Mind”, is your section. In a twist on published art we see Lena raw. Unedited, flaring and flowing pieces of her mind, Lena is a woman not afraid to say what she is thinking. In the closing section, "Back in the Day", we get to reminisce over our journey while Lena does the same. Here we get the unique opportunity in flashbacks to see how a master poet breathes the first breaths of life.
“Pieces of Me”, is universal, it contains much for all; it is impossible to consider a library of great volumes complete that does not contain a copy of Lena Kovadlo’s, “Pieces of Me”."
Review by Poet/Writer/Author Regis Auffray
"In this collection of poems, Ms. Kovadlo shares of her self. As I read her verses, I find myself relating to so much of what she expresses about life and love and all that these entail. I find that "Pieces of Me" are indeed pieces of my own experience in many ways. Ms. Kovadlo's poems are a way of getting to know her but also an insight into one's own "self" as one relates to what she shares. "Pieces of Me" is a meaningful and enjoyable reading experience."
Review by Poet/Writer/Author Allie Batt
"Sometimes, the most dramatic and most influential item to say when encountering a gem like this, is the blunt and honest truth. You can dance around the subject or come right out and say it, and there is no reason why we should have to suffer through the agony of reading a review, or book for that matter, that prances and pretends. It's a devious way of not getting yourself hurt. Well, I have no fear of prancing, and I have no fear of getting hurt, because in all truth, Lena's book has not only saved my life countless times, but it has allowed me for a better existence. Her passion, her strength, her very core is etched across the pages of this book, and for no reason, should that be glazed over. It is the blunt truth when I say that this is a masterpiece. A beautiful scene and show for the world to see. She places herself out there, for the entire world to see. Exposing herself... her very essence to those that might find it, unimaginably speaking, raw. But that is where the grace comes from. It's pure, unsoiled by processing, and empowered by actual events. She is the gem in which we've been waited for. The next beautiful soul to aid us in our journey through life. It's happened through countless other, renowned artists, and you are sure to find that same emotional depth in this work of art. It is a beauty, and if you have any half a mind, any who read this, you should buy this book. You won't forget it."

|I just noticed that your book was the one featured so I clicked on it. Congratulations again, Lena. "Pieces of Me" is definitely the best of the three books that I have seen. I've only read a few poems. I am taking my time to enjoy and "feel" what is expressed. Love, peace, and best wishes to you,
