Excursions of the Mind 2

Excursions of the Mind 2: Stories Take Flight by J Kenzy is a collection of poetic short stories with the common theme of God’s love and country. Hailing from a small American town, her roots are reflected in her writings about the American Heartland. This book takes readers on a literary journey across the beautiful land.

This collection is appealing with a delightful creativeness and a simple yet pleasing nature and has a cheerful visual appeal with its oversized artworks. Some readers will appreciate the chaotic graphics, but it may be a bit distracting to others.

Added in with the wide range of topics, ranging from the Founding Fathers to a woman who escaped North Korea, the book is a treat for those who love global history. There is a wide range of topics, placed in no particular order, that will take readers in all directions. While I enjoyed the topics and found them intellectually invigorating, I would have enjoyed themed sections with a thoughtful arrangement of the poems.

The poetry in the book will appeal to average readers as I think the poems are more like poetic short stories rather than poems that convey nebulous ideas with strict adherence to poetic rules. The poems are more descriptive and take the reader to the scene, just like an actual story. While the poetry forgoes consistent rhyming schemes and themes, it instead has free-flowing poetry that dips in and out of formal rhyming structures and morphs from one poetic form to another.

Excursions of the Mind 2 is a collection of thought-provoking free form poetry that I recommend to readers who like global history, nature, spirituality and the American country. It is a light read with simple descriptive poems accompanied by artwork that is a treat to the eyes.
