This collection speaks words directly to the soul, radiating love, joy, power, spirituality, and light. Finally, a poetry book that matches the description! It IS inspiring! How? This collection encourages one, lifts you up, says kind words, and shares spiritual growth. I loved this. Connect to yourself and regain confidence in the creation that you are! Many of the poems had a rhyming stance that was eloquently done. At 209 pages (Kindle Version, E-book), the length was perfect! You definitely get a FULL collection here. I enjoyed the length of the poems as well. The professional, high-quality resolution, black and white photographs were as beautiful as the poems themselves, correlating to the material perfectly. Some of the poems had different shapes making my eyes dance across the pages. This was smart. The flow in its entirety is like swaying gently in a cozy hammock, enjoying the fluffy clouds passing by on the perfect breezy day. Words that come to mind when I think upon describing these poems: Soothing/Restorative Calming and empowering is the tone, letting you know it's ok to forge your own path, these are all expressed with such love and kindness. The author was extremely successful with what he was trying to convey. His poetry was like a warm embrace around my heart. I'm a firm believer if you heal the heart wounds, you heal the mind, heal the body. I cannot share my favorite poem because none of them were labeled individually. I like the simplicity of this but it also makes for tougher conversation. "Please refer to the beautiful poem on page..." That's how I'll have to discuss this, but that is literally my only complaint. Images, sounds, style, flow, this one truly has it all! I would be more than happy to showcase a physical copy on my bookshelf as well as take a look at his other two poetry books. For now, I'll re-read KISS THE EARTH on the Kindle app whenever I need to shine some light in and around my heart. Much gratitude to the publisher and author Neal Sehgal, for releasing early copies and to the Goodreads Giveaway Program, where I won the E-Book ARC. I was under no obligation to write a review, my honest opinion is freely given.

    This collection of poems, reminisces (Whitman meets Rilke meets Rumi meets Roethke?) reads like a reckoning with the world. Fluid, sensual, yet filled with longing, it teases out the essences of existence including regular references to nature such that it could even be considered “nature poetry”, and owing to how disconnected newer works seem to be from nature, even narcissistic, the bastard literary children of an overly urbanized, overly cyber-ized society, I found his references to nature be This collection of poems, reminisces (Whitman meets Rilke meets Rumi meets Roethke?) reads like a reckoning with the world. Fluid, sensual, yet filled with longing, it teases out the essences of existence including regular references to nature such that it could even be considered “nature poetry”, and owing to how disconnected newer works seem to be from nature, even narcissistic, the bastard literary children of an overly urbanized, overly cyber-ized society, I found his references to nature beautiful and soothing. I cannot think of another poem that uses as its touchstone, a planarian. I also loved the effect of the photographs juxtaposed against the words. “Bewildering wilderness...” “You will begin again from the beginning for the very last time...” “A thunder born from the quiet...” “He sang in shapes, she listened in colors...” “Kiss Me,” said the sky. Mediocre minds will always spit malice in the face of your greatness—because they have failed themselves. A poem of lovers, one is the wave cashing into the other, the sand. This is a haunting, lovely collection of writings definitely worth a read, maybe to keep by your bedside.

    And now, your moment of zen. Can opener. That is what reading most of the poems in "Kiss the Earth" was like for me, a nice, soft, somewhat sophomoric little verse which would have me kind of nodding along distractedly. Then I got to a last line, so drastically disconnected from what I thought the verse was about I could feel my brain emitting negative waves. That's not what I believe poet Neal Sehgal intended.

The verses were broken up by photographs. I mean "images." Sehgal likes old broken stuff and dogs. His photos are way better than any I could take. That's not saying much. I do really like one he took of a wrecked grand piano lying on its side, but mainly because I am curious about the story behind it. I received this book free in exchange for an honest review on Goodreads.

    I got this book for free during a giveaway but here’s my 100% honest review. As soon as I started this book, I was absolutely indescribably blown away simply by its magic. This is a fantastic collection of poetry. Written meticulously and incredibly beautifully. I loved it so much. It also included some random photographs which were nice but unrelated to the poem it was near. I think I would enjoy them more if they were separate and the second or first half of the book.

That’s my only minor complaint but I really recommend everyone reads this. I do want to buy a physical copy (because I loved it so much). Perhaps when this quarantine is over and I have income. I sent a few of my favorite poems from the book to my best friend and have convinced her into getting a copy. Which convincing is too strong because she read the poems and loved them too.

However, this book came just when I needed it. It is beautiful and insightful in its simplicity. Some poems and musings were short while others were more detailed. Yet, they all were powerful. They spoke to my soul and reminded me that not all is lost in the world. They resonated with me and I felt connected with them because they felt as if they had been written to me or about me directly. Therein lies the power of this collection because it is a prime example of how magical it is to find oneself lost between the pages of a book. I will definitely be looking for more from this author in the future.

    I received a free copy of this book through a giveaway hosted on Goodreads. Kiss the Earth is beautiful. There’s no two ways about it. It combines all the good parts of an insightful fortune cookie, a self-help book, a friend’s advice, and a well-taught English class, all wrapped up into a collection of verses, then broken up by photographs worth their own share of lyrics on their own to give the reader the chance to breath and reflect.

From the first page, I found myself not just reading the words, but mouthing them under my breath, really trying to absorb them. Individually, each verse is a message unto itself, giving the reader a tidbit on how to live a better, happier, and more loving life. Together, however, the collection is like a song or a story, coming together to engulf the reader. I want to buy multiple copies of it, some to give away to people who will enjoy it, some to write notes in or to bookmark for later, and one more to be left in pristine condition, as it has the potential to be a classic, should fate serve it well. For now, though, I am content just having it on my Kindle to be read again another time, when I need to take a step back from life for a few moments and reground myself.

    The first poem sent chills racing up my arms. I related with it immediately. Neal has a way of spreading a variety of themes throughout his book. It is very much well thought out and addicting to read. I kept flipping pages until none were left. Even then, I craved for more. There were intricate words found in some poems that I had to learn. They were intriguing and caused curiosity to get the best of me. So not only did I connect with every word, but I learned some new ones along the way.

The images found throughout the book were beautifully pure. I cannot wait to see the work Neal puts out in the future. One of my favorites: “she was sunkissed. wanderlust for the hemispheres. earthshine against her silhouette. stardust in her naked gaze. eclipsing all who came before. beautiful for the moment she was here- forever bittersweet in the ways i will remember.” (page 107)

    Kiss the Earth, made my heart ache... this book is so unique with its words and images it made me think and reflect so much that at several times I had “oh wow” moments and moments where I would almost break down crying. It has a very cozy and mysterious feel to it which I liked. Having the images in black and white was interesting and some of the images I didn’t understand why they were in there but it didn’t matter that I didn’t know why. Neal put them in there for a reason that only he knows.

I won this book in a giveaway and Neal signed it which has me so excited! I’m so happy that I got a chance to read this book it is so special I’m so many ways I don’t even know how to explain it. Basically just read this book. You won’t regret it!

    I am not always into poetry, but this collection I truly enjoyed. Seghal brings nature, calmness, and spirituality to his poems. He writes simply, but exquisitely. Vulnerable yet empowering, Mr. Seghal leads the reader to love, self-awareness, and thoughtfulness. I could only read a few poems at a time. I felt myself wanting time to reflect on those that impacted me most. The poems, mixed with some photographs, were short, easy to read, and lovely.

    “we are all birds in a cage with the latch unfastened” In eleven words, Sehgal tells a story of forgotten freedom--- of the fear that sits alongside the longing. Kiss The Earth by Neal Sehgal is spiritual. These prayers in the form of poetry are a beckoning to readers to recall certain unwavering truths. Both the barely-there and the jarring truths of the human condition and the world that embraces it.

Kiss The Earth by Neal Sehgal is spiritual. These prayers in the form of poetry are a beckoning to readers to recall certain unwavering truths. Both the barely-there and the jarring truths of the human condition and the world that embraces it. There is a hopefulness embedded into these poems that extends the invitation to dream again, love again, and watch ourselves through the eyes of the divine--- as the divine would have us to. Sehgal reminds us of our own resilience, describing grief as necessary and cyclical as a function of nature reviving itself again and again. He likens tears to raindrops and heartbreak to the splitting of soil and asks us to consider returning to the source, just as all things that grow tend to do. This book tells resonating stories of love as redemption, the necessity of compassion--- towards ourselves and our planet and applies the salve just the way poetry is supposed to.

Sehgal also exhibits a mastery of language with the myriad notable instances of lyrical word choice, esoteric allusions, sensory imagery, metaphor and internal rhyme. Experimental in form and features, there is a visceral thrill to witness in this journey as well. A poetic triumph best appreciated by the self-reflective reader. 5 stars. Most highly recommended.

    “Mapping out the journey from where we are to where we need to be” Kiss the Earth, as all of Mr. Sehgal’s writings, is part work of beauty, part meditative guide book. The theme of his latest work- what I took away from it- was simply living and being receptive to the wealth of input that brings. It is arrived at through the usual observation and contemplation of the world around us done in the author’s beautiful poetic style. I am not someone who sits and meditates.

Every day chaos and time restraints prevent that. I look forward to the reflections of Sehgal; his books are small collections of epiphanies that would otherwise be lost to me. Pick up this book, sit back and experience it.

    I received this in a Goodreads giveaway! 3.5 stars I appreciate what Sehgal is doing with this book of photos and poems. The themes are mostly uplifting and he has a way of boiling some deep truths into succinct nuggets. The yogic influence is noticeable and I appreciated that myself, but maybe not everyone will. I most liked the poems that I personally needed and certain lines or while poems took me aback because of their ability to say something I felt to be true.

This is a book with a few gems that my yogi/spiritual friends may enjoy and others may not.

    A profound piece of writing sure to imbue its readers with a measure of compassion and awakening. Some poems are longer than others, but each word is well chosen and each poem is succinct in the delivery of its message. Sometimes pensive and melancholy. Other times hopeful and uplifting. But always full of heart, honesty, and integrity - each tied by the common thematic thread of gratitude.

    Kiss the Earth is a beautiful collection of poetry and photographs depicting the passage of life. Unfortunately, poetry is very subjective and hard to adequately rate if it does not appeal to your style. If it touches you in a meaningful way then it is good. For my personal tastes I found the language very forced in places that distracted me from the overall journey that’s meant to be taken while reading this book.

    A book of very mindful poetry, interspersed with pictures of nature. If you are into short, quiet poems that would go great while listening to "Fade Into You" by Mazzy Star then this is right up your alley. If not, well there are limitless books to choose from. Side note: if you're a Kindler like me, don't bother if you only have the e-paper version. This book is not compatible with them. I won a copy of this in a Goodreads giveaway, but that makes no difference in my review. A book of very mindful poetry, interspersed with pictures of nature.

    This is one of those books that you'll want to read slowly. The beautiful poetry found within these pages will permeate your being in a deep and profound way. I found myself wondering if perhaps the author had access to my innermost thoughts, and secrets. Each poem resonated with me on a soul level. I experienced a myriad of emotions as I read each page. As I reached the end, I felt inspired + connected. This is a beautiful collection of poetry, a great addition to add to your collection. This is one of those books that you'll want to read slowly.

    Superb I must preface this review by saying I received the book in a goodreads giveaway, and I am so glad I did. It is stunning, breathtaking, poignant, and rings with truth. I loved the myriad topics, as I can quickly grow bored with love poems, and the use of language. Glorious. Fun. Enchanting. I would say do it, give it a go! And maybe now they will rerelease his first book, as I immediately tried to track down any other work and found it to be quite pricey. 😭

    This book is a beautifully arranged journey of thoughts and feelings that inspire and invigorate. Every word and image massages a different part of your heart, mind, and soul and reminds us to be grateful for all of our experiences whether sour or sweet and for all of our companions whether they can or cannot speak. A must have for poetry and photography lovers alike or for anyone just seeking inspiration and new insight!

I resonated with much of it, and even the ones that didn't made me stop and appreciate them. Lovely pictures, the book is in paperback, and I believe self-published? It would have been interesting if the pictures could have been in color. A pleasure to wander through, and meditate on. Crossposted to GoodReads and Amazon.

    This book was very captivating -- I read it in just two sittings! It's hard to find a book like this these days -- spiritually uplifting, emotionally stirring, and just plain beautiful. The author is really able to connect with the reader and make you think about life a little differently -- it's been a long time since I've loved a book of poetry so much.

    Sehgal's words are beautiful and leave the reader transfixed by the images they paint. There are spiritual elements to this book, but most of the messages supersede any sort of religious element. The kindle version does not do justice to the photos within the book, though. It breaks up the writing in an odd way but I think that would not be a problem with a hard copy of the book.

    *I received a free copy in a Goodreads giveaway Poetry is such a hard thing to rate. I admit that I don't read a lot of it, and maybe that's why a lot of these poems went right over my head.
