Madison Kentabout this book: I think poetry is unlike all other written work. We may learn from authors that we read whether we feel they are talented or inspirational but we usually know little else about them. When you read poetry, you will get an immediate sense of who the author is, perhaps as a lover or a friend. You are privy to how they view the world and they will reveal to you some of their most intimate thoughts. Even as a young child, when I read Shelley, Keats, Byron (some of my favorites), I felt a connection to them and it made reading more enjoyable.
There is a truth in the words of a poet, they take an emotional experience that encompasses a grand oak and whittle it down to fit inside the space of a pencil. Every word must represent something special and allow the reader to create a colorful scenario for them.
Poetry From Behind the Curtain contains 72 of my poems, over 50 of them have been previously published in magazines, print book and on line poetry sites.
My personal favorites:
• Heartache: Lessons From a Forlorn Heart, On Every Corner
• Perfect Love: The Night of a Thousand Sea Lights
• Social Issues: The Obelisk Walker, The Girl with the Slanted Eyes
Laurie B., poetry editor of proseandrhyme.com has written a lengthy favorable review of my book.
Subjects include inspirational, romance, heartache, loss and general Americana so there is something for everyone.
