Foreword . . .
The title of this book, Moon Kissed Musings, not only invokes tales of trials and tribulations of the heart but brings a unique perspective to the table. According to Tracy Seiden, love takes an arduous journey through rhyme, free, and blank verse. The compositions of these poems provide manifestations of feelings via thoughts, via words onto paper, a conveyance of ordinary words pulling you into a myriad of emotions. This is prevalent in an excerpt of the piece Second Chances.
“Her thoughts raced through the back roads of her memories kicking up dust and pebbles threatening to crack the windshield in her mind’s eye. Her imagination ran wild, nearly unchecked frolicking through the past, present like some half wild five-year-old in a candy store.”
Seiden’s work portrays a conflict between vulnerability and acceptance placing her within a world of complexities and uncertainties. Vivid pictures are painted throughout to create a literary mosaic. The reader will gain an understanding of an author that’s bearing her soul, yearning for a happy ending and fulfillment.

Preface . . .
This is my second book of love poems and free verse. I started writing as a way to heal and write a little about what moves me. This book is a collection of words about love and finding oneself, walking our journey together and enjoying the world around us.
The works in this book take a few deeper steps into love and heartache, the feelings one has when confronted with a love that seems perfect, but in the end was never meant to be. The star-crossed love that at times can feel like the real thing, but in the end just isn’t the right path.
These pages describe the feelings of the loss of a love like that when there isn’t a wrong or right party, simply timing that doesn’t allow a love to flourish.
This book also contains works of finding that right love, the connection and ease with which it comes when two people become partners and walk together.
I hope you enjoy sharing this walk with me and I am honored to bring this book to you.
