"Reviewed By Erin Nicole Cochran for Readers' Favorite
In Murray Pura's poetry collection, Petals: Poems of a War in Ukraine, you are immersed in a part of life that many people in this world are not privy to. War. This collection pulls together snapshots of childhood memories and the recalling of war, and the heartbreak of both at times. It will break you out of your comfort zone, that is a fact. It will open your eyes to a war of which many of us have no inkling. You will be faced with that war, and with recollections of childhoods that may or may not be similar to your own.

Murray Pura's first poem draws you in, giving you a sense of a history that might not be known, but it makes you traipse through the unknown in a way that is captivating. There is a heartbeat in these poems that rhyme could not produce, it pulls you in with poetic words. My favorite poem, “she traced my body on paper”, entranced me. I can picture it in some ways and can’t in others, it’s a back and forth kind of unsettling emotion that I find to be perfect. If there were any confusion to be had, the poem “the man from Paris” again is a favorite; however, its structure made it difficult for me to read easily, and there were times when I didn’t know who was speaking. Other than that, Petals: Poems of a War in Ukraine by Murray Pura is one of the best collections of poetry that I have come across in some time. I highly recommend it."
