Poetry Spotlight: Conversations from the Left, Right, and Heart by AMS Golden

I don’t normally read a lot of poetry. Even books written in prose are not often found on my TBR. But I was intrigued by the title of this book as well as the cover artwork so I decided to give it a try. So what did I think? Keep reading to find out…


Conversations from the Left, Right, & Heart
by AMS Golden

A 10-year collection of poetic writing on life, love, and growth.

For anyone who has known the struggle of having to choose between the rational (left) and imaginative (right) parts of their brain, and then had to fight the battle over the head and the heart, this book is for you. These are based on thoughts and conversations I’ve had with myself, The Left, The Right, and The Heart over the last 10 years of my life. Maybe you’ll even recognize some of you in some of it.


“Just Another New Jersey Author”

Born and raised in a port-town in New Jersey, AM has been writing for years. After being laid off of work in the middle of a global pandemic she took to writing out the thoughts she began having with her head and her heart on paper and created “Conversations from the Left, Right, and Heart”. In time, she hopes to share many more of her poetic pieces with the world.

AM does not call herself a poet. Her only hope in publishing this book was that maybe something she wrote (something she felt) would reach someone else who felt it too and suddenly… There was someone who understood. “Every word I wrote was for you. To help you feel less lonely or crazy. To help you through whatever you’re feeling. To let you know, I feel it too.”


I find poetry really hard to review. What I enjoy, may not be the same for someone else. Yes, you can say this about just about any kind of book, but for some reason, I find this especially true for poetry. There’s just something very personal about it.

This is why I was intrigued by the title of this poetry collection: Conversations from the Left, Right & Heart by, AMS Golden. Everyone is so different, looking at the world from different views. Some of us lead with our hearts, others with our heads. Whichever it is for you, I think you will enjoy this book!

Concentrating on the conversations we have with ourselves, these poems will give you “all the feels.” The world has changed rather quickly over the past year and so there is a lot for us to process. As we move through each day, we need our brain and our heart to work together to keep us going.

Conversations from the Left, Right & Heart by, AMS Golden is a lovely collection of poetry that you can easily read in one sitting, especially with a pot of tea beside you. In fact, I highly recommend that you do just that!

I give this book 5 Sips!
