Flash Fiction “On Love” and a Review of Passions: Love Poems and Other Writings #poetry book

On Love

I must rebuild your love in my brain.
My soul bears the marks of castles lost at sea.

My Dear Readers,

Thank you again to everyone who bought my book. Special thanks to those who review it on Amazon. I plan to feature each Amazon review on my blog. Until then, here is a review, one among many, done on an online book club by a reviewer whom I do not know.

“The work of art is a beautiful thing. Poem is the master of all arts. It creates emotions deeper than mere imagination and beyond. It transfers human feelings to a realm of wonders.Β Passions: Love Poems and Other Writings is a book of art written by Gabriela Marie Milton…. I was wowed by the poems. I became engulfed in them…I have been inspired to write my own poems starting with love poems….”

Nothing honors me more than inspiring others. YouΒ can read the entire review here

My book, Passions: Love Poems and Other Writings, can be ordered here.

Thank you
Love
Gabriela

      1. Oh thank you so much Button. I really am always so grateful for your kind words. So glad you liked it my dear friend. I didn’t know comments were closed or how that even happens. We are investigating now to figure out how to fix this. You are such a dear, you probably, with your kind heart, were alerting me to this situation. You are such a wonderful and supportive friend dear Button, thank you sweetie. Have a brilliant day and congratulations again on your amazing review. Love you honeybun 😘🌺🌸❀️

  2. That is awesome review! Though I am new to your blog, I am very happy for you :). There’s just a certain feeling one gets when they know that they’ve moved a reader/someone with their words. To inspire, encourage,and empower people on a deep level is amazing. I’m an aspiring writer in hopes of one day publishing my collection of poetry and you are certainly my inspiration. πŸ™‚

    1. Hello, and welcome to my blog. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your beautiful comment. I am humbled by your words.
      “There’s just a certain feeling one gets when they know that they’ve moved a reader/someone with their words. To inspire, encourage,and empower people on a deep level is amazing.” Yes, it is amazing.
      I am sure your poetry collection will be fantastic.
      Sending you good wishes

  4. A review that shows a reader captured by the published art of you – it’s what you do with words here too, Gabriela – I look forward to reading what other say of your ‘Passions’ too – and I’ll try to find the right words to write of you.

  5. That is so wonderful Gabriela !!! Nothing speaks to the heart of a writer more than someone who understands what you meant ! I’m so happy for you ❀️❀️

    1. Thank you Andrada. You are so kind. My heart always melts when people feel inspired by me. There are plenty of people who inspire me and I know that feeling of gratitude and love that I have toward them.

    1. Thank you so much my dearest Cassa. I am very grateful to you for your support.

    1. Kevin, thank you so much. Your generous support means a lot to me.
      I hope everything is well with you.
      Best Wishes,
      Gabriela

      1. I am glad to hear that all is well with you Kevin. You did not post so often lately -or I did not get the notifications on my blog – so I wondering if you were ok. I am glad now and even if lock-down is being lifted I hope you sill stay safe.
        Take care.

      2. Thank you Gabriela. I have been posting each day, but perhaps the WordPress Reader has decided to go on strike and not include all of my articles … I am in the process of issuing a further collection of poems, and I’m currently arranging for it to be proof read. If, at any point you would like to do a guest post (perhaps about your book “Passions”, I would, of course be delighted to publish it. You to, take care, Kevin

      3. I am having trouble with WP. I have been chatting with them for a week telling them that something is wrong with my blog. I follow myself and I cannot see my posts in my reader anymore. I do not receive notifications. My stats are crazy. WP said that everything was fixed. Well, apparently was not. Everything is the same. I have to open another live chat with them. I am not looking forward to it.

        “I am in the process of issuing a further collection of poems, and I’m currently arranging for it to be proof read. ” That is so exciting Kevin. Congratulations. I was planing to write to you because I want to make a guest post with you end of June beginning of July. I will be trilled if you accept my invitation. We can feature your most recent book and talk about the new one. Whatever you wish. Please let me know.

        “If, at any point you would like to do a guest post (perhaps about your book β€œPassions”, I would, of course be delighted to publish it.” Thank you very much Kevin. I am humbled and honored by your invite, I would love too. Perhaps the beginning of July ? What do you think? Thank you again.
        Gabriela

      4. I’m sorry to hear about your problems with WordPress, and I hope that when you open another live chat that they are able to resolve matters for you.

        I am not a fan of the Block Editor which will, from 1 June be the default for posting. I’ve tried it with my screen reading software and it doesn’t work for me. WordPress assure me that Classic will remain my default editor after 1 June. Whilst I really appreciate this reassurance and the particular assistance of one WordPress employee, I must confess to being somewhat apprehensive as to what will happen on 1 June.

        Thanks so much for your kind invitation to guest post. I very much appreciate it and will send something through in June.

        You are welcome as regards the guest article on my site, and I look forward to hosting you in late June/in July.

        Kevin

      5. I just had another chat with WP. You do not want to know about.
        I did not try the Bock editor yet. I’ll try it today. Yes, you can still use the classic editor if you like it better.
        I am thrilled you accepted my invitation. We will talk more via email.
        Take care Kevin.

  8. β€œa book of art”

    I could not agree more. And yes, so inspiring. Holding your book is like holding living and breathing emeralds.

    And the photograph, is that your cat???? I need to know.

    Sending you chocolates and flowers and notes filled with poetry. Lots of love to you dear Gabriela xoxo

    1. Hi my fabulous Rachel,
      Thank you for your beautiful words and for your email. You are an angel.
      “Holding your book is like holding living and breathing emeralds.” You are so kind and so supportive sweetheart. You heal people’s souls. Only If i can do what you do.
      “And the photograph, is that your cat???? I need to know.” Yes, that is Maya. But I cannot take a decent photo of hers lately. She does not want to stay put. She is beautiful. She is a very small kitty. Tonkinese cats are not big at all.
      Oh, thank you for the chocolate and the flowers. The poetry is gorgeous.
      Sending you baskets filled with summer flowers. Rachel, please take care of you.
      Love and hugs, sweetheart.
      xoxoxo

      1. Ok, I officially love Maya, and wish to sign myself up to her fan club or insta page, or whatever cats are doing these days πŸ˜³πŸ˜‚. She’s gorgeous, as is everything in that picture. It personifies you…. I wish I could describe what I mean by that properly. Sorry about my late reply to this, I am just catching up now.
        Hope you’ve had a great weekend β€οΈπŸ’™β™₯οΈπŸ’œπŸ’›πŸ’š

  9. I’m a cat person, and that cat is a pretty one! So happy for you, I have this strong desire to just write down all that Rachel wrote here but plagiarism would be such a disrespect towards the enormous admiration I have for you. Sending love and a hopeful safety!!

    1. Aw.. thank you for complimenting my cat Watt. She will be delighted to hear about.
      Thank you for your support and your kind words. Can I disclose here a comment that one of our common followers (it wasn’t Rachel) left on one of my posts? She wrote: “Gab you are really good. You are there with Watt.” I was thrilled and honored. I will always be.
      Take care and thank you again.
      G.

      1. I think you are better than I am. And I have this habit to trust my thinking.
        You are great Watt.

  10. YES!!! I swear, Gabriela..there just aren’t enough words. Right before I came here I sat and read Your poems ‘What I want’ and ‘The secret of a hand fan’. This reviewer says it perfectly: “…I became engulfed in them…”. One DOES!!! They just sweep me away. And play with me and tumble me about with many emotions. I’m off to read the rest of the review and seriously couldn’t be happier for You! And “On Love” here blew my mind and heart. Sending You hugs and hopes that You have a most beautiful weekend!!! πŸ€—πŸ’•πŸ˜ƒπŸŒ€πŸ˜Š

    1. Katy, my dear, thank you from the bottom of heart for the praise. You humble me every time. I don’t find words to thank you properly and to tell you how much joy you bring into my life. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
      Please know that I profoundly admire your work and that you are one of the most gracious and generous persons I’ve ever met.
      YOUR ENTHUSIASM BRIGHTENS MY DAY!
      LOVE
      G.

  11. Liked the review. The person is totally into it. And your writing makes a person to feel its rhythm. All the best. Congratulations. πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you so much for taking the time to read the review Kritika. It means the world to me sweetheart. You are a gem ❀️❀️❀️
