The Gathering of Gemstones: A Poetry Collection , by Judy C. Andrews


     Dr. Maya Angelou once said, "God puts rainbows in the clouds so that each of us, in the dreariest and most dreaded moments can see a possibility of hope."  Civil Rights Activist, Mary Jane McLeod Bethune, explained how important it is to "invest in the human soul," because she felt that everyone is "a diamond in the rough."  The Gathering of Gemstones: A Poetry Collection, by Judy C. Andrews, explores the possibility of hope in an ever-changing world, through her personal reflections on conditions that affect the human experience, with emphasis on her African American culture, the beauty of the natural world, earth, the universe, and the magnificent colors that shape them.
     A sensual and spiritual collection of poetry covers a range of topics using the motif, light.   
     Subjects of this collection include love, romance, relationships, and social issues.  Traditional, poetic genres, such as sonnets, cinquains, and free verse are among Ms. Andrews' favorite forms of poetic expression, as well as non-traditional genres. 
    This artistic work of literature invigorates, entertains, and inspires readers from all walks of life who enjoy creativity, artsy work, sexy language, and rich words of power.  The world is filled with enchanting possibilities.
