Official Description:

Poetry Eyes is a collection of poems that explore four fields using various writing styles.

Each field is packed in one chapter. The first chapter Brilliant Beauty sheds some lights on different aspects of the art of poetry, while the second chapter The Real Challenge deals with heart matters. The third chapter They Say.I Say gathers assorted branches of wisdom, while the last chapter Sugar Pepper And Salt presents some unusual metaphors to challenge the reader’s imaginations and thoughts.

My Take:

Poetry is something I used to read often, and something I used to write daily, but one day it just kind of went away. The last book of poetry I read was 5 months ago, not counting the few Poe poems I indulged in. It’s hard to judge a poem, they are so personal, but as a reader we want to know if this is something we want to pick up. This book is 102 pages, and full of short poems. If you sit down and read you can finish within 30 minutes, if you read slow. There are some good poems and some ok poems. I didn’t like how several of them ended, they just felt out of sync with the rest of that piece. The poem inspired by Alzheimer’s was a good one, sad and meaningful. Nothing really stands out though, but it was an enjoyable book to go through.
