I've followed this guy's writing for a number of years now, and I'm glad to see that he's taking opportunities to get his name out there.
With great use of metaphors and vivid descriptions throughout the whole of his works, Mieczynski entertains us with various considerations of human meaning, sexuality, and perception. His poems are thought-provoking and inspiring, and though the majority of them lead to some finite conclusion that represents the essence of the piece, he maintains a relatability to readers of various walks of life.
The poem that shares the title of the collection, Tierra Templada, is perhaps one of the strongest pieces, and I nearly wish it was the opening poem simply for the depth of its message in relation to the world, society, and even the accountability of ourselves.
Of course, there are many more equally as inspiring pieces, but I will leave that to the readers to check out for themselves, and I greatly encourage you all to. It's a couple bucks that you definitely won't regret, as this is a collection I know I'll be coming back a number of times as I await the author's next published work.
