This book delivers to readers all that encompasses the meaning of the two central terms laid out in the subtitle Flying: A Book of Provocative Poetry. Divided into six strands of thoughts, author Patricia Mortenson glides her rhymes between politics, love, health, family, and more. The author of Flying seeks to lead us to critical thinking about various social conflicts and reflect on the paths we take in our lives and the choices we make, which is evident in poems like “Too Many Choices.”

Mortenson’s reflections push us to think about the consequences of our actions, not only for our future but also for the world and the people we love. In one of her poems, she shows a simplistic view regarding decision-making. This example has only two options; however, what encompasses making that decision is what makes them much more complex and is the most challenging part of the process.

As the compelling rhymes flow and the author’s ponderous thoughts are laid out, the reader’s feeling is one of conflict. Mortenson uses her poetry to create an emotional response because emotions will lead to reflection and that can and will be uncomfortable at times.

Flying is a collection of poetry presented in a manner that readers will feel like they are having a conversation with the author. This feeling is productive from the point of view that when you read there is an exchange, she gives readers her knowledge and her doubts, readers stop to think about and attribute to what was read our point of view according to our experiences.

Flying A Book of Provocative Poetry provides readers with a thought-provoking experience. The poems encourage self-reflection and critical thinking about the choices made in life. This astonishing collection will captivate and enthrall readers for lovers of intimate poetry.
