Seeking Smiles with Michelle Nadasi


Michelle Nadasi’s desire for the readers of her poetry is that they will come out smiling. Her debut collection, seek the roses (Leaf Publishing, 2019), goes a long way towards accomplishing that goal. These are bright inspirational poems, packed with beautiful imagery and a contagious sense of wonder.

Find Your Voice

A kid within
A playful hero
Get inside yourself
It’s your voice
Free it

While the book is broken down into loosely thematic sections, it does not need to be read in any particular order. Hopscotching through the pages actually adds to the joy of discovery here. Nadasi’s hope for her book comes true as smile builds upon smile. seek the roses is available now at Poetic Justice Books.

As part of our National Poetry Month celebration, Michelle Nadasi will be reading and discussing her poetry at Poetic Justice Books & Arts in Port Saint Lucie, Florida on Friday, April 12 at 6:00.
