Love beyond her fondest dreams
Was destined to come true,

She’d met her one and only and
She knew just what to do.

She was lost in Sonny’s eyes,
He swept her off her feet,
Touched by passion’s burning spark
Its flames ignite love’s heat.

She recognized his special love
Could now be hers to own,
Pennsylvania, USA
Would be her final home.

Daveda knew a man so true
Was one she’d not forget,
A special love straight from above
Found on the internet!!!

Magical Moments
By Daveda Gruber
Acrostic/ Lines from Book/Minute Poetry
-Book Review

Man and woman uniting as one
A Gentle man with a love so Tender
God blessed me when your sent my way
Ingiting a flame that burn constantly
Caress my body till I scream with delight
Always, my lover, and my best friend
Love had found a special place, where her heart found a home

March was the start to a new life
Only with the love that you can provide
My love for you will never die
Endless longing as it appears done
Never has there been a love like this
Together, we will always walk hand in hand
Shining bright as the sun above

Magical Moment a Great book
Please take a look
Romance defined
Nothing confined

Daveda tells us her story
God gets Glory
Her man Sonny
Sweet as honey

They had an internet romance
Didn’t meet by chance
Swept off her feet
Love can’t be beat

This certainly was an excellent romantic book. Daveda takes the readers on her journey of romance- From Montreal to Pennsylvania. Sonny Gruber certainly swept her off her feet.
I truly enjoyed this book from the front to the back. The photos really enhances that book and the reader feels that she has been invited into their territory. I could not put the book down. I finished reading it within three hours...

"A Blonde View of Life" is a lovely poetry book that has great humor, love and fantasy. The Author writes as inanimate objects and can get you to laugh out loud as you read her muse!! She writes of true events in her life with a passion and writes from her heart and soul. She has lovely black and white photoes of herself and her family. The book just arrived today but after dinner I had to sit down and read it from cover to cover to help me with the very tedious day at work. I would highly reccommend to anyone that needs to feel uplifted by laughter and the emotion of love. I have all of this Author's books and this one also is one I will pick up to read again.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Blonde View of Life - Excellent Humor in Poetry at Its Best!, August 11, 2009
This review is from: A Blonde View of Life (Paperback)
This is what I classify as a funny and happy-type poetry book. It's packed with humor and is written by a wonderful blonde who jokes about herself. Daveda Gruber, is a sensational author and poet of numerous volumes of poetry. She is beautiful, witty, and full of charm, which will become very obvious while reading this excellent poetic volume, "A Blonde View Of Life."

Daveda starts the book with an exceptional poem, "A Yellow Rose," written in the Quatrain format. It speaks highly about meeting her husband, Sonny, who is from Pennsylvania, when he travelled to Montreal, Canada to meet her for the first time.

You will crack up while reading her series of poems, "Gym Bag on Fire," regarding buying underwear for her ex-husband, Jerry, who is a lawyer. Apparently, he had left his gym bag on the stove top with a variety of his underwear inside and the bag burned to ashes. The irony is that she had to buy him several new sets of American underwear, while accompanied by her now husband, Sonny, at her side in the store. HA! This is really a funny poem.

While reading, check out her poem, "A Blonde Moment." It will have you in stitches from laughing. In the last stanza she states, "I am a dumb blonde honey; it seems that Jerry still owes me money (referring to her ex-husband the lawyer)."

Her articulation and personification of inanimate objects will get you moving in the following poems: "I am a Jockstrap," "Life as a G-String," "I am a Sock," "I am a Bra," and others. She brings these non-life pieces of clothing to life in her poems while telling detailed stories with vivid images.

Reading about famous people is like a "Who's Who in American Society." Catch her with these famous people: President Bill Clinton and his wife, Hillary; John Lennon the singer, and his wife, Yoko Ono; Oprah Winfrey (talk show host); Scotty from Star Wars, beaming her up; and Tiger Wood, the golf pro. Don't forget that she is also an avid golfer; therefore, if you're on the golf course and hear someone yell, "FORE," don't forget to take cover. Additionally, she is a Scorpio; therefore, take some bug juice with you. Haha! This is so much fun writing about my dear friend and poetess.

Daveda gives tribute to her dear and precious mother, who still resides in Montreal, Canada, in the following poems: "July Ninth or Tenth," regarding her exact date of birth, and "Happy Mother's Day" in the forms of a Quatrain for the former, and Double Etheree poem for the latter. She also renders tribute on her sisters in "Three Ballerinas." They are really cute!

She uses the Rhyming Couplet form to place her loving husband, Sonny, in the spotlight. Additionally, her use of the Epigram form is very witty in articulating the essence of their love. Don't forget the brown fluffy poodle pup, "Lady Godiva," I bet she eats nice dark chocolate candy.

Daveda speaks of her breasts in a humorous manner with a series of poems. She refers to how she has had breast reduction, and how her breasts have grown back to be magnets for men's eyes. This is a really funny and humorous section.

She has a variety of pictures throughput the book, which makes the pages catching to the eyes. Several of the pictures show her beauty, husband, mother, sisters, and many more. Several motifs are also prominent.

Over all, this is an excellent poetry volume written in a story format using a variety of poetry forms. It's humorous as poetry should be, intriguing, and inspirational.

Obtaining and reading this book,"A Blonde View of Life," should be a special treat.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cling To The Magic--Just Awesome!, March 30, 2010
This review is from: Cling to the Magic (Paperback)
"Cling To The Magic" is an excellent book of poetic forms and techniques by Daveda Gruber. This is her recently published book and probably the most comprehensive of all the others. This book consists of 237 pages of poems. Each poem has a corresponding picture which brings out the tone and essence of the poem.

The first poem in the book begins with the theme and title, "Cling To The Magic." This rhyming couplet poem is written in the true end rhyme format with an equal amount of syllable count in each line (Page 1). The tone of this poem is uplifting and one is able to feel the magical flow of the lines. The second poem entitled, "Magical Place" is also wonderful (Page 3). It is written in the Rubiyat style with four lines in each stanza. There is an alternating rhyme pattern in each stanza. The essence of the poem is truly magical.

There are several poems in the book regarding her family. There is a beautiful poem about her husband, Sonny, entitled "Loving." It's written in the Ameri-ku style (Page 34).The book continues with a variety of poems about her family in different styles and forms. 

There is a glossary which explains all of the forms used in the poems for greater understanding and clarification. The glossary is listed in alphabetical order.

Cling to the Magic (Hourglass)

Cling to magic within each page
She writes with passion, soul and heart
You feel conflict leaving and rage
You see arrow of cupid's dart

You feel essence of her being
You feel tranquility brought
Imagery she writes you're seeing
You feel the Devils' snared and caught

You feel forgiveness turn to love
You see her talent all so well
You feel she's guided from above
You find reading pleasure to tell

You find reading pleasure to tell
You feel she's guided from above
You see her talent all so well
You feel forgiveness turn to love

You feel the Devil's snared and caught
Imagery she writes you're seeing
You feel tranquility brought
You feel essence of her being

You see arrow of cupid's dart
You feel conflict leaving and rage
She writes with passion, soul and heart
Cling to the magic within each page
