WordCrafter Blog Tour for Small Wonders


The world is filled with amazing things, if we will just stop a moment and take notice. In this vast universe, we are but tiny individuals, filled with awe and amazement. From reflections on first love, to reflections on growing old. The poems within these pages express a lifetime of unique reflections in Small Wonders.



Undawnted's DL Mullan sat down and interviewed fellow poet, Kaye Lynne Booth about her poetry collection, Small Wonders.

What made you decide to write a poetry book?

Small Wonders is an accumulation of a lifetime of poetry. I have written poetry since I was a young girl, and here and there, I’ve had a few published over the years. But, poetry is a form of writing which I indulge in because it is fun, and although I enjoy sharing my poems, I never really looked at it like it was something to make money off of. But when I saw the enthusiasm rise for the Poetry Treasures books, which WordCrafter Press published each year, I decided that I had enough poems that were sitting around gathering virtual dust to publish a collection and share them with the world, for better or worse.

Why the theme "Small Wonders"? What was the inspiration?

Poems are the “small wonders” of the literary world. They help people see things in new and different ways. They allow the poet to pour out his or her heart in a way that expresses exactly how they feel in such a way as to create an image that others can relate to and understand.

Is writing poetry an innate skill, or did you have to develop it? Do you have your own style? Or, do you like writing poetry in the various standard forms (haiku, sonnet, etc.)?

As I said, I like to write poetry because it is fun. I like to play with words, and so, I have fun experimenting with different forms of poetry. I enjoy writing syllabic poetry to see if I can say what I wish to say in the correct amount of syllables, and I also enjoy playing with visual poetry, such as shape poems. In the collection, I’ve included an entire section of poems I just had fun with.

Do you have a favorite poet? If so, why? How did this poet inspire you?

A. I am partial to Emily Dickinson, Sidney Sheldon and Dr. Suess. I believe that much of my poetry carries the sing-song, rhyming qualities of the two latter. Dickinson, I relate to on a different level, as she is more somber in her poetry, in both subject and content, and I think some of my more serious, emotional poems carry that somber quality. 

Have you written an epic poetry (Homer)?

Actually, I have written a couple of epic, or at least semi-epic poems regarding the life and death of my son, but those are for a very different book. There are a few poems in Small Wonders which are quite long, but I don’t know that one would call them epic.



Want to return to a time from your youth? Want to let your imagination guide you through the images dancing in your mind? Then pick up a copy of Small Wonders, by Kaye Lynne Booth. 

Small Wonders is a collection of poems that cradle the reader in fanciful rhymes that lead to having a picnic buffet of emotions and imagery, waiting with each turn of the page. The reader gets to sample different motifs and poetry structures throughout the book. 

If you want to take a moment for yourself, then read a page a night. 

Here is an example:
