    Outdoor persons, and deep-thinkers will enjoy this book of poetry, in which is the minuit of our natural world. A breath of fresh air, as if sinking into the serene calm we feel when stood on the beach, with the sea lapping at our feet, and having left the concrete jungles behind. While many of the poems are observational, others are opinions of the writer, and matters of the heart are written about, as well as the moon, family, rebuilding, the earth, trees, and age. “It is the move behind exist Outdoor persons, and deep-thinkers will enjoy this book of poetry, in which is the minuit of our natural world.

While many of the poems are observational, others are opinions of the writer, and matters of the heart are written about, as well as the moon, family, rebuilding, the earth, trees, and age. “It is the move behind existing that starts living” My highlights are Poems Peach and House for Sale. The circle of life all in one volume, Moon Full of Moons is an enjoyable read and my review just doesn’t do it justice.

    I generally dislike writing about writing, but Lehmann has my attention in the second poem here, Being a Poem. Turn to this one when you get this book, or ‘peek inside.’ Nicely done. For an example of Lehmann’s use of the ordinary and personal to give you, her reader, an experience, turn to Peach. “A peach is always eaten on its own terms.” This happens again in Alive. In Orion the Hunter we find this: “You are an illusion – / a Rorschach test /revealing the values of others. /Your lights will exti I generally dislike writing about writing, but Lehmann has my attention in the second poem here, Being a Poem. Turn to this one when you get this book, or ‘peek inside.’ Nicely done. For an example of Lehmann’s use of the ordinary and personal to give you, her reader, an experience, turn to Peach. “A peach is always eaten on its own terms.” This happens again in Alive. In Orion the Hunter we find this: “You are an illusion – / a Rorschach test /revealing the values of others. /Your lights will extinguish / like birthday candles /when Nature makes a wish.” This poem is far more complex (and beautiful) than this short quote can possibly reveal. Buy the book and turn to this one. In The Language of Lines: “Wrinkles /like furrows worn by stream beds, /overlap like tales written in the dark. /Fragments of lines are experience to be read /like a book broadly open for sharing.” Again, this is a sample of a fine experience delivered into your mind and gut. Again, in Family Photos: “Family is sweetness around me, like apple /on my solid core. /Looking at photographs – /slices of days, /captured /and flattened /like roses.” For a surprise ending, turn to Unspinning the Earth. In House for Sale you will find an amazing metaphor. This happens again in My River. My notes include many other favourites. Hopefully I’ve given you an insight into what this book did to me. Normally I have boilerplate here about how I come up with a star count, so here goes: my personal guidelines, when doing any review, are as follows: five stars means, roughly equal to best in genre. Rarely given. Four stars means, extremely good. Three stars means, definitely recommendable. I am a tough reviewer. Lehmann is a very fine poet. Put up beside Robert Frost (The Lovely Shall Be Choosers), e.e.cummings (Tumbling hair; O purple finch), H.D. (The Helmsman), Margaret Atwood (Projected Slide of an Unknown Soldier) Lehmann is indeed ‘roughly equal to best in genre.’ I try hard to be consistent, and for me five stars is a clear and easy decision. Highly recommended.

    Reviewed by Carla Trueheart for Readers' Favorite I was just completely blown away by this beautiful book of poetry by author Kat Lehmann. While initially drawn in by the title Moon Full of Moons, I soon discovered that the book actually follows a theme of the moon phases, which was wonderfully unique and something I have not seen before in poetry books. In an era where a poet really needs to stand out, this theme was brilliant and pulls the reader right into the book for the duration. While the Reviewed by Carla Trueheart for Readers' Favorite I was just completely blown away by this beautiful book of poetry by author Kat Lehmann. While initially drawn in by the title Moon Full of Moons, I soon discovered that the book actually follows a theme of the moon phases, which was wonderfully unique and something I have not seen before in poetry books. In an era where a poet really needs to stand out, this theme was brilliant and pulls the reader right into the book for the duration. While the poetry is described as transformative (like the moon phases) and even sad, the poems at no time have a sense of forced melancholy, just of life lived and passing time. Further, Lehmann is a master of word painting and poem construction, and I truly looked forward to each poem. With natural themes such as butterflies, trees, constellations, rivers, and earthy colors, this book will be appreciated by nature writers and readers, as well as lovers of the natural world. There were many favorite poems in Moon Full of Moons, but to choose just a few, I would have to pick "Family Photos" for the honesty of the poem, and "The Language of Beauty" for the imagery of seashells and “drops of dormant rainbows puddling to a stream.” There was so much color and movement in these poems, and author Kat Lehmann has the unique ability of using emotion rather than just the words in her poetry. I enjoyed the transformative journey, and recommend the book to those who enjoy poetry, unique themes, natural themes, and beautiful writing.

    Just exquisite. I see that a poetry therapy institute wrote about this book, and I think that's the best way to describe it. Poetry Therapy. It's timeless and expresses things that can't be easily described. Recommended!

    A delightful and deep book of words and wonder for the phases of life, love, loss and renewal. I keep this with a treasured stack of books on my nightstand, and every time I dip into it, I find something new. It is the type of poetry that meets you where you are. A book that keeps on giving through the seasons.

    Brave and insightful. Although I enjoyed many of the poems for the reasons we usually enjoy poetry, what really hooked me about this collection was the soul work that informs those poems. It felt like watching a flower bloom while the flower describes its blooming in self-aware poems.

    It took me a long while to complete this book of poetry. I’m ok with that as reading poetry can take time. I found I related to poems more toward the end of the book than the beginning. I chose the book for the title. Some of the poems will stay in my mind for a long time.

    If you've been through the s***, you will relate to this book. Inspiring and deep, the overall theme is the struggle and realization of happiness when it feels all has been taken away. I haven't seen a book like this before. It's poetry, but it's also therapeutic, like realizing you're not alone. The arc of the book follows the phases of the moon.

    3.5/5 Hmmm... Not totally sure how I feel about this book. I loved the concept with the phases of the moon, as I love astronomy. However, I didn't fully make the connections of all the transformations she was describing. Some were very evident but at other times I was wondering what she was trying to say.

    Enchanting!!! While some of the poems are more abstract in nature, it gives you the opportunity to reflect within and search for your own meaning. Other poems made me realize that there are some core experiences of womanhood that are timeless and universal and made me feel connected with the author, my mother, and my daughters! Thank you Kat, for sharing this with the world!

    I love poetry when it is done well and is meaningful. Kat Lehmann's book warms the soul, is sensitive and beautifully written.
