I have loved reading and writing all kinds of poetry most of my life. I am always seeking interesting poetry books and I picked up this one (Passionate Hearts: The poetry of sexual love compiled and edited by Wendy Maltz) at a bargain price on Amazon. This wonderful collection has many contributions from poets I was not familiar with and one of the many things I loved about this poetry collection is that all the poems were shorter rather than too long. I have always loved the shorter poem styles rather than the long drawn out boring poems which seem to be popular with some academic pseudointellectuals.

This wonderful collection is organized into five chapters. Chapter one explores the poetry of tender awakenings. There are 12 poems in this section. The second chapter has poems about passionate pleasures. There are 31 poems in this section. Chapter three deals with varied dances and has 30 poems in this section. Chapter four has 23 poems about deeper intimacies. The final chapter called “Graceful transformations” has 20 poems. There is also a list of poets at the end of this volume.

If you are a poetry lover this is a book you should check out. I found the poems so compelling I could not put it down until I had read all the material. I only have one complaint. This is a collection of poems about sexual love but it is the most sterile poems about this erotic activity I have ever read. I guess using too earthy and specific sexual terms was not welcome in this collection. A little too much political correctness possibly?

Rating: 5 Stars. Joseph J. Truncale (Author: Haiku Moments: How to read, write and enjoy haiku)

Half-sleeping,
my body pulls toward yours-
desire a long oar dipping
again and again
in this night's dark rain.

The poems in "Passionate Hearts" are based on mutual caring and respect. They are about heart-connected sex and evoke vivid images of warm loving relationships. This truly is a celebration of the moments of beauty in the sexual experience.

I love the way Natasha Josefowitz describes herself as a violin and how Robert Wrigley talks about painting his lovers skin with invisible roses. There are beautiful metaphors mixed in with bolder expressions of the real-life experience.

I started reading the poems and within a few hours I had read the entire book. Each poem was filled with such mystery and beauty. I noticed they were arranged from the excitement of new love to the experience of finding time for sex when you have a family and then the book ends with poems about the autumn of love.

If you are inspired by the universal experience of poetry and enjoy the mysteries of sexual love, these poems provide a healthy look at sexual intimacy.

One of the few poetry books that has a healthy look at sexual love. Sadly, this is a rarity. For most books on sexual love, there seems
to be the need for the "f bomb" or to insult one's partner. That is mindless and childish at best. My request is to see more books by Wendy Maltz on this topic.

It is one of those books you can read to your beloved during those 2 am "intellectual/spiritual" talks---be that over glasses of red wine or cups robust organic coffee.

The book was packaged beautifully and received in great condition.

This book is fantastic, I bought this based on how much we enjoyed her other book "Intimate Kisses" The Poetry of Sexual Pleasure. My boyfriend and I absolutely love reading it to each other. When I saw she had another book I snatched it up and we love this one as well!
The only reason you will put it down is to "get busy" with your partner:)
Both are a must for any couple!!!

Here's a Tip for Guys Who Want to Super-charge a Romantic Relationship: Find a new poem in this handy book every morning and text it to your girlfriend or significant other. You'll VERY QUICKLY become like honey to the bee(s). TRUST ME on this one! Women LOVE it when you take a few minutes to pick out just the right poem and text it to her when she least expects it. She will MELT in your hands. I know this from PERSONAL EXPERIENCE. This simple act will separate you from the ocean of guys out there who were apparently raised by a pack of wild dogs and who probably can't read or write anyway. Try it. Thank me later. I date a model. Maybe you can, too, and you won't need a Porsche or George Clooney looks. ;) P.S. No!! I am NOT the author of this book nor am I compensated in ANY way for recommending this book. - Mel Cooper
