STUTTERING DREAMS By James Byron Love is an enjoyable, thought-provoking, trip into the mind, heart and soul of a very talented artist/poet. The book contains thirteen images of his artwork. They provide a visual poetry to compliment the written word.
His poems are written in the free verse style; however, he does enjoy slipping in an occasional line or couplet written in iambic meter.
His use of imagery is strong, "Waves crashing endless on empty seas...." and in some poems I felt as if he was painting with his words to create the images, "Drifting clouds coloring the abyss...."
Many of the poems are devoted to love and he presents his feelings with deep conviction. All in all, his style of poetry suggested to me a mixture of Dylan Thomas and E.E.Cummings.
In truth, my only disappointment with the entire work was the title. I felt that it falls short of displaying the true beauty of the works. He did in fact have a poem with those words; I simply feel that he might have tempted more would-be readers with a title like, COLORING THE ABYSS. In any case, I hope this review tempts would-be readers to give STUTTERING DREAMS a chance.
I most certainly recommend this artfully crafted collection to any lover of poetry and art.
