Accolades for Morning Light by Jean Kay
“It is a rare poet who shows us how simple things; tears, laughter, and sunsets teach us, heal us and bring us everyday joy. Yet the easy rhythm of Jean Kay’s verse does just that, coaxing treasured memories out from my mind-attic and polishing them so I may remember how thrilling it is to be alive. We each need two copies of Morning Light, One for us and one for our dearest friend.”
“Here is a collection of especially insightful poems to inspire and lift the reader to positive, healing thoughts that invariably lead to gratefulness, joy, compassion, and unity with our Creator. A treasury to keep within reach.”
