A Jarful of Moonlight by Nazanin Mirsadeghi is a short collection of poems about writing, friendship, hope, love (self-love and romantic love), sadness/heartbreak, and healing. This collection is very short that the reader will be able to finish it in less than 10 minutes.

I enjoyed reading these poems (and I love reading poems in general) and I can somehow relate to some but I couldn’t find anything new about this one. The poems are, of course, original but the ones I have read here remind me of the poems I usually read on Twitter whenever I’m scrolling through my timeline. I have no complaints about poems written by anonymous or random people on Twitter though. In fact, I have found myself in some of their short poetic sentences. Some have actually brought me home.


A Jarful of Moonlight is a good collection but there’s something that lacks here and I think, for me, it’s the invisible electric thin thread that connects the reader and the poem together. I didn’t feel the intensity I needed to feel in order to love a piece. But having said that, I think it’s still worth the read.

Note: I would like to thank the publisher, Bahar Books, for sending me a paperback copy of this book. This did not affect my review in any way.
