Sep 16, 2012You can immerse yourself, luxuriate, and let your mind playfully moondance within the imagery and emotional alchemy Mrs. Brayton conjures. As I do, you can savor scenes that melt, irresistably and deliciously, a cotton candy treat of lasting,lingering verbal impressionistic art; unpretentious, never cloying, disarmingly intimate with a direct, open honesty as comforting as a walk down an English lakes country lane. I can think of no more satisfying adventure than time spent exploring the human experience, the mysteries and wonders of life both great and small with such an astute and intrepid guide.
Apr 21, 2012I have just received Wanda's lovely poetry book - or tome I should say! How impressive => her impeccable, thorough and over-all organization and the number, range, depth and extent of her writes. Just AWESOME. It's like a whole shelf of books, and together with all the influences she's brought to her work, a whole library! This is a must have for everyone... I'm so glad I have mine!
Jul 20, 2011Among the ranks of romantic poets, Wanda Lee Brayton is considered one of the most subtly sensual and discerning poets. She is recognized for her use of Renaissance emotions and contemporary artists as content within her poetry, as well as for her creative use of metaphor and sincerely peaceful style. She is a perceptive and sensitive woman, who has soulfully explored her own emotional depth, often in poignant ways by sharing her innermost feeling through personal poetry. She has used an illuminating style of writing from the heart with a keen insight into relationships and life. At times she is full of hope and is characterised by joyous, celebratory poetry, whereas at other times she can be surprisingly sorrowful and express deep wounding. Her finesse and discerning acumen into the desire for hope and compassion is lauded by many of her peers, as well as other authors and local poets. This fine collection of poetry from Wanda, expresses more than the woman and her works, it... More > demonstrates her cultivated sense of beauty, love and devotion to all things of the heart.< Less
Jul 10, 2011Pablo Neruda wrote “two happy lovers make one bread”. Wanda and poetry are lovers, they are one, a synergy where love is made a permanent verb. Their relationship is not one of force, not held with ropes, but with an aroma that not only surrounds them, but involuntarily draws the reader in. It’s like a villanelle, this inclination of going back, of circling at the sheer beauty, depth and grace of their creation where only the rereading counts. I admire her for the true artistry and humanity she represents, for her impeccable poetic skills, her mastery of the English language, her knowledge of literature, for her amazing heart of many rooms. Ever since I’ve encountered her writing in 2004 I’ve been imprinted with the knowledge that she’s a natural poet: she makes poetry as naturally as it is to breathe. Wanda’s poetry allows you to enter an open field of flowers and vistas: a discovery of the greater distances within yourself. Naturally, she changes the poetic landscape; naturally,... More > she’s a light that endures – her writing will remain inside you. I've ordered my copy of her book and I can't wait to hold true art in my hand. ~ Nicolette van der Walt (author of “fire lily: flower of the flame”)< Less
Jul 6, 2011I have been a fan of Wanda’s poetry since I first read her beautiful, soulful poems on an online poetry sharing site some five or six years ago. I think what has struck me most about her work is the lush beauty of her images and rich complexity of meaning in her words. She is one of those wonderfully skilled and talented writers who can weave amazingly intricate tapestries of the soul from the raw fiber of language and create images of emotion and thought at its deepest level. Reading her poems truly is like studying a tapestry of vibrant and colorful imagery. At first you’re drawn into its rich, lush fabric of language, and then you nestle your mind into the warmth of the heart’s understanding.
