    1. With poets, love is eternal. They possess a sense of all senses. There’s a hurtful clarity, souls become nurtured, and memories become sharpened. A poet’s heart whispers to them. J.D. Estrada’s collection inside Between the Tides does all of that.His poems throughout sing a certain song, a song that we all perhaps have endured in some way. A music that is blissful and filled with many challenging thoughts and reminders.J.D. is a powerful and evocative writer and definitely worth a read!

    2. I have a confession to make: I’m not the most ardent fan of poetry. The ones I love, I love a lot: The Ambush by Brian Patten, Delayed Reactions by Sheenagh Pugh, anything by John Hegley.

The emotion of JD’s poetry hits you like waves - one moment you’re chilled and relaxed, the next you’re tense an [...]

This book makes you think and inspires you directly and subtly, showing a glimpse of the world author sees. It even inspired me to write a few poems as well, di [...]

    4. This is the second collection of poetry I've read by J.D. As before, this left me pondering life and inspired me to pick up the pen myself and write. The writing style flows along a rhythm. The words seem to fall off the tip of my tongue, making me flow along the tides coming to shore (see what I did there?). This collection to me is mainly about struggles we face daily. There's the struggle of freedom, of overcoming, of putting words on paper, of not being able to sleep. As stated in "The Sea" [...]

    8. Estrada's poetry collections are always a joy to read. Clever word play is written with rhythm that easily changes from steady and slow to a frantic pace. It is hard to pick just one phrase that stands out, as there are so many Aha! moments. I'll be reading his other works.
