Book Review
The Color of Butterflies is a lovely book of poetry by Tina
Mae Lawson. The best way to describe this book is that it is
an emotional journey of life as the author experienced it
and sees it through her own mind.

There are no apparent titles for each poem and it is written
almost like a journal of various experiences through time
filled with emotions, pain and lessons learned. What I liked
about this book is that the author seemed to take a very
personal approach about the joys and pains of life, love
and just living. As many of the poem are very relatable in
this universal existence we call life...

The effectiveness of the poetry was effected by the lack of
apparent titles for the poems presented in this book, as
there is no table of content in this book either. There were
also some gramatical errors I found distracting, but could
have been done for effect. The book cover was lovely and
depicted the book very well. My favorite poem is on page
44; it's about Love and how it can put you on a natural high,
but can also bring you to a very painful low that can drive
you insane.

There are approximately 73 pages in this book of poetry. It
was a very nice to read.
