Dear Readers,

My poetry book Woman: Splendor and Sorrow was reviewed in Seattle Book Review.

You can read the review in the link below.

Here are several snippets:

Woman: Splendor and Sorrow: | Love Poems and Poetic Prose, written by Gabriela Marie Milton, is a brilliant arabesque comprised of authentic artistic stanzas and poetic prose penned the multifaceted emotive lines that highlighted the dichotomous complexities of womanhood in history and modernity…

Milton detailed the stark dualities of feminine divinity hidden within seemingly everyday occurrences via twenty-five pieces of poetic prose at the end of the book. The prose contrasted aching souls, aging, fear of the unknown, mysterious characters, and a genuine penchant for feeling the essence of life in all experiences, whether negative or positive outcomes.

Poetic collages adorned with emotional ephemera captured raw femininity dovetailed within the life cycles of womanhood; enmeshed in struggles, trials, and tribulations were depicted with fortitude and honor that chronicled the beautifully gritty feminine experience…”
