These poems mostly written during the months of October and November 2011 started during a bout of chickenpox are the reflections of a young man on the threshold of growing up. Some are quite provocative and of adult nature so caution is advised. Some are trivial poems,some serious,some humorous. Some even rhyme. More

Review by: Ellie King on May 01, 2012 :
I started reading these when the book was first published and then went back and finished reading them today.
These poems are an absolute delight to read, they are deeply personal and yet the author is so open and welcomes you so completely into his world that you feel privileged to have been invited in.
The descriptions and imagery are wonderful and I will certainly be returning to this collection.
I am a great advocate of reading poetry aloud, if possible and I will definitely be attempting audioboos of some of these because I very much want to hear the sounds and rhythm of the words as they're spoken.
That is the highest compliment I can think of for poetry, that and I would like some more please! :)

A delicious insight into the inner workings of a sensitive and sensuous soul who has a wonderful way with words. Beautifully evocative, touched me in many places.

Just what the description says: some trivial, some serious, some humorous. They certainly give the reader something to think about. An interesting collection of poetry.

Review by: Sue Denim on Feb. 14, 2012 :
Beautiful, tender, funny - a simply clear style, but filled with observations and a delightfully intimate tone that adds up to an individual and original voice. Highly recommended
