Summary (from Goodreads):

Phoenixes Groomed as Genesis Doves is a collection of poetry that draws the reader into the world of personal identity, inner growth and the complexity of human relationships. Ordinary and common images, especially ones found in nature, are used to craft poems that appeal to the uncommon, the suppressed and the others. Filled with incredible grace and accessible wisdom, the poems explore a wide range of complex emotional themes. With unexpected metaphors and sparkling similes, the pieces vary in rhythm and theme making each one like a foil-wrapped candy: something to savor, enjoying each new bright color on the tongue.

My Review:

I don’t read poetry often, but I was blown away by the pieces in this collection.

Each poem discusses a certain theme, most of them are complex and emotional, but each and every one of them has an important lesson and means something to the author and to the reader alike. We all go through similar stages in life and Jasmine Farrell describes some of these life-lemons beautifully.

Some poems were long, others were short, with a couple being only one to three lines. The collection is a very quick read, though to get the full effect of each poem it’s best to take your time. However, I read it in one sitting as I couldn’t put it down.

Each poem is very elegant and tell wonderful stories. Whether you read poetry or not, you won’t be disappointed by this collection.

Phoenixes Groomed as Genesis Doves by Jasmine Farrell gets 5 out of 5 stars.
