“Like stabs of lightning in a pitch black sky, Kiana Kleemm’s flashing words illuminate the vast, secret landscape of the heart and shake our souls awake with fierce passion and childlike joy. At once innocent and knowing, hopeful and heart-rending, this collection of poems is a life-affirming celebration of both the human spirit and the liberating fires of imagination.”
(Screenwriter, Script Doctor, Former Script Consultant for Al Pacino, Michael Man and Andrew Niccol, NY/LA)
" The book is a collection of poems based on various topics. The cover is black, giving the book an extremely elegant appearance. I was apprehensive about reviewing this book as everyone has their own distinctive taste in poetry and I wasn’t sure what to expect.
However, the book is extremely entertaining. The verses are not based on any particular theme but cover several topics like death, chocolate, the little joys of life and of course love. The poems are all thoroughly enjoyable.
I particularly enjoyed the dedications at the beginning of the book as they were certainly quirky!
If you are looking for a breezy read, and if you enjoy reading the verse, I will certainly recommend this book to you."
"A beautiful set of poetries by a very young soulful mind. Each poem takes you to a different dimension. These poems are as deep and mindful as easy to recite. Kudos to the creative imagination of the poet."
“With Kiana’s words, you somehow know she is not just speaking to a God or sending a message for guidance. It runs deeper where there is a longing for something lost. A love that is so intense that lives in the essence of her and defines how she navigates the world and the beauty, pain and wonder she shows. Kiana has opened up a part of the soul that not many can do and this debut collection is a great advert for the adventure of life”
