Moon Child Dream is an easy read whose poetry constantly strives for musical sounds though some poems end abruptly and without unmusical endings. So sometimes the poems end suddenly and feel somewhat incomplete. At the same time, some of the poems also read like nursery rhymes, they are light, easy to follow, and direct. It makes the idea of love easily accessible and easy to understand for anyone.
There are also some repeated lines and phrases like “Albeit, we will make it through” that hold some of these poems together and give them a solid theme to follow. In the beginnings of the chapbook, there is some parallelism that add structure and meat to the poems.
Present are a few lovely lines like, “For without your waves, I fever,” that turn commonplace phrases into something new and more interesting.
There tend to be few literary devices despite these examples, and those are the backbones of poetry. Since all of the poems are generally very straightforward, there are also not very many original metaphors and no layered meanings, which make the collection accessible to people who would like an introduction to poetry with something that will not make your frontal lobes bleed with complex phrases and multiple meanings.
