Book review – Words from an unlikely poet vol.2: Further thoughts by Charlie Hasler

Blue Sky Days 365

Charlie had a lot to live up to following his excellent first book of poetry Words from an unlikely poet, you may read my review which awarded it a very worthy five stars.  Volume 2 has some similarities; it is again a slender book of verse and many poems are themed on emotional angst, however I feel this book has a more compact range of expression.

Beginning with the romantically titled ‘Pink Skied City’ which, although not romantic in theme, uses almost romantic language to describe the ordinary.  My interpretation is that it’s a commentary on the banality of life.  Throughout the book Charlie uses great imagery and analogies, with ‘Mind Radio’ standing out.  I really liked the rhythm of the poems ‘Back to One’ and ‘Connected’, I felt the flow resonated well with the message.

Overall, a nicely put together book of poetry.  I will leave you with words…

Further Thoughts

My second book of poems is available at Amazon on Kindle and paperback.

Give it a go! 

Following on from the first book, Further Thoughts is one man’s view of the world around him. It is a candid expression of the trials that come with battling mental health demons, the exhaustion that comes with the search and pursuit of happiness and the inner peace that is achieved once finding it.
