About Jeffrey A. White

I approach life with a childlike wonder and curiosity. One of the things that gives me joy is hearing a bird sing the gift of a new day. Simple things like sunshine, children laughing, beautiful clouds, wind rushing through trees and so on put a smile on my face. It is the simple things in life that most people overlook that give me the most joy. Indeed, I like to look at things and take it all in whenever I can, whether I am walking down a busy city street with all of its colorful neon lights and store fronts, with people of all kinds writing their stories and playing out their parts, or sitting in a natural space, surrounded by the poetry of the great outdoors.

For my profile photo, I was truly "a soul with a body"...I was unaware that I was suffering from pneumonia. I just thought that I had a very bad cold. A passerby told me that I sounded like I was trying to cough up a lung. By the time I got to the doctor, I was told that there was so much fluid in my lungs that I should have died on that mountain.

A well writen book of poems that should be read by anyone who as lost a loved one, as we all have. I have no hesitation in recommending this work. I believe that this is the first book of poetry by Jeffrey White and I look forward to the next

Review by: Mark Butkus on Sep. 30, 2013 :
With an eye towards minutiae and color...especially color Jeffrey White explores moments captured in time. "A Blueness I Could Eat Forever" seems to be a cathartic exercise to clear the author's soul of the loss of his parents and of his longtime girlfriend who are remembered poetically with kindness. But there is more than loss within the words of this thin volume. A worthwhile read.
