Moore captures the moments, but she makes the reader think deeper. While making me think deeply, her words are so well chosen for rhythm and musicality, that many of her poems are musical to my ear. I don't normally like long poems, but Mo I can honestly say that I loved eighty-five percent of the poems in this collection.
I don't normally like long poems, but Moore's What the Sand Says is one of my few exceptions. It sings with the sounds of the sea. Her poems are erudite without being off-putting to the average reader of poetry. My only criticism is that her language at times borders on the flowery in certain poems, but most of the book is truly a gorgeous read.

I watched this book come to fruition and through the poet's frustration , have read it with great admiration.

I admire his commitment to God, his family and his country, and his willingness to "put himself out there". However, I didn't enjoy this collection of poems. I didn't like all the rhyming, or having the first letter of the lines of the poem spell out the title of the poem.
