Jenny Bornholdt ‘THE ROCKY SHORE’ the most enjoyable book of poetry I have ever read.
Thank you God for writers like Jenny Bournholdt.Writers who tell the truth yet manage to remain hopefullnot cynical.Writers who tell stories and write poetrythat you cannot stop readingyet want to savor for a long time. 
There is nothing quite like reading beautifully considered prose/poetry for the first timeand being enlightened andenriched.The second reading is good, enjoyable but the first read is when you heart is opento the possibilityof learning somethingand yet not prepared for anything in particular.And wham!It hits you.Change, that is.This is the power of words.Of lifeof death.
We are most successful when we do what we truly lovenot what we think others will love more. Jenny’s natural fit is longer poems.She tries to challenge herself by writing shortieswhich I LOVEbut the longer poems are better.When you are reading them,you just know that she is exactly where she is meant to beand that she loves it.

Thank you God for writers like Jenny Bournholdt.
Writers who tell the truth yet manage to remain hopefull
not cynical.
Writers who tell stories and write poetry
that you cannot stop reading
yet want to savor for a long time. 

There is nothing quite like
reading beautifully considered prose/poetry
for the first time
and being enlightened and
enriched.
The second reading is good,
enjoyable 
but the first read is when you heart is open
to the possibility
of learning something
and yet not prepared for anything in particular.
And wham!
It hits you.
Change, that is.

This is the power of words.
Of life
of death.

We are most successful when we do what we truly love
not what we think others will love more. 
Jenny’s natural fit is longer poems.
She tries to challenge herself by writing shorties
which I LOVE
but the longer poems are better.
When you are reading them,
you just know
that she is exactly where she is meant to be
and that she loves it.
