ARC audiobook provided in exchange for an honest review.

“My love can be messy.”

I’m so glad I stumbled upon this author’s poetry books! They are short and sweet reads with a very inspirational message flowing throughout. I will definitely be buying some physical copies for gifts and my personal collection. I also loved how he narrates all his books, as I believe no one can read the material quite like it’s own author!

Powerful, insightful, and moving. Billy Chapata speaks to my soul through his art. Filled with messages of self-empowerment and self-actualization. Accompanied with upbeat rhythms and melodies that serve as a melodic metronome that harmonizes with the poet's messages of self-affirmation. Chapters are named after some of the moons for our solar system (Enceladus of Saturn focusing on maturitya and responsibility, Deismos of Mars focusing on desires and passions, and Amalthea of Jupiter focusing on self-improvement and self-love) and a single flower of the verbena family that stands for rigor (connecting back to the repeated message of self-love and staying resolute to stand up for oneself). I found listening to this album on my morning and evening walks therapeutic and enlightening as so many quotes resonated with my core and the subtle symbolism is the delicate brushstroke this poet practices. Thank you to the poet for sharing his messages and spreading love and positive energy. I look forward to hearing more of your art.

“Something can not be fixed not because they must remain broken but because they're meant to be replaced with something stronger”.

Full of affirmations, sweet phrases, and valuable reminders. I loved and enjoyed this book as well as the narrator. The poems are profound and fascinating. I was so sure that I'm going to love this book and I'm glad I did.

Special thanks to the author, publisher, and netgalley for this free audiobook.

WOW! I didn't realize that I NEEDED this book of poetry as much as I did. As soon as I listened to the first 20 minutes of the audiobook, I knew I definitely needed more of this kind of mindset in my life. I immediately downloaded 2 more Billy Chapata books: Chameleon Aura, and Velvet Dragonflies. I can't wait to dive into those VERY SOON.

The topics include: personal growth, emotional healing, loving yourself (even with ALL your flaws), letting go of things AND people that are holding your back in life, and much more. This book is brimming with positivity about who you are and who you are becoming. I am so impressed with it overall! I can see myself reading this book again.

Billy Chapata also does a superb job of narrating the audiobook version. I definitely recommend that experience if you're into audio.

Content: In my listening experience, I did not notice any vulgar language or mature topics.

this is some of the best poetry I've ever read. I was able to relate to almost every single excerpt and that usually never happens. I highly recommend for people in their late 20s although I think a lot of people can relate to these poems.

I loooove reading or in this case hearing poetry about self love. Poetry is my favorite way to connect to others and find words that resonate within myself. These read like a story and it really was inspiring to feel like I was hearing Billy’s thoughts.

Beautiful and thought provoking poetry. I did not have time to listen to this before the archive date, but I did once the book was published. Enjoyed the audiobook and narrator!

Billy Chapata's words were moving and helped with my healing journey. I recommend this book for anybody who is going through a hard time in their life. The book teaches you the importance of self-love and self-respect and how to handle yourself in the midst of life's ups and downs.

In <i>Flowers on the Moon</i>, Billy Chapata is back with another beautiful collection of poetry with themes on self-love, recovery, and growth. I loved getting to hear Chapata narrate his own poetry again with this collection. I would strongly recommend this for younger readers who struggle with self-confidence.

Many thanks to NetGalley for providing me an audio ARC of this book.
