The BookViral Review:

In a landscape where poetry and prose are increasingly anguished and unstable, Rhythmic Reveries of a Ruminating Mind’ is a veritable oasis.

In this beautiful collection, A. H. Mehr blends serenity and homeliness, eliciting nostalgia and fond memories in her readers as they navigate her own remembered experiences, which she wraps effortlessly in lilting rhyme and a comforting flow.  Added to this, positive affirmations and passages of explorative prose encourage meditation in quiet moments- each subject capturing an idea, or the essence of a feeling.

Mehr varies her prose enormously without sacrificing poetic integrity. The tiny snippets in ‘ Cinquains’ act as a perfect foil to larger pieces, providing opportunities to either become immersed or to devour a small morsel when time is short. This variety makes for a weighty and richly layered fully absorbing read.

Showing a real maturity in her writing, Mehr condenses her words down to only those which carry weight, choosing each word or phrase mindfully-evidence of her accomplishment as a poet, despite displaying a collection so wide and high that every page is a discovery – sometimes with an edge of familiarity-sometimes alien and interesting, and always thought-provoking.

Her detailed observations of the natural world are stunning, with intricate observations which capture the essence of the beautiful world around us. 

Where Mehr touches on tragedy or sadness, there is always that faint silver lining or a snippet of hope and recovery, leaving the reader with a sense of peace and contentment.

A wonderfully gentle volume, ‘Rhythmic Reveries of a Ruminating Mind’ is firmly recommended.
