Following on from the first book, Further Thoughts is one man’s view of the world around him.

Kaleidoscopic Beauty: A Collection of Poetry on Love, Loss and the Beauty of the Natural World (review)

A beautiful collection of rich poems. Gentle and easy to read. I found myself floating from one to the next. I find Karen’s writing a calming experience. I also believe however gentle the words are on the whole that there is real substance and layers to each poem, I think there are even darker layers hidden beneath a lighter exterior. My personal favourite is Broken Dreams, I thought about it a lot after reading, it is very simple but hit me straight between the eyes. Well dissevering of 5 stars and I look forward to reading more of this very talented poets work.

Karen’s fantastic work is available on all Amazon sites.

Book Review – Words from an Unlikely Poet

Blue Sky Days 365

I first came across The Unlikely Poet, Charlie Hasler via his blog right here on WordPress not long after I had began my own poetic journey.  Having downloaded and read Words from an Unlikely Poet many months ago, it’s taken me becoming an author myself (psst did you know I’ve published a book?) to understand the true value of genuine reviews.

I promised Charlie that I’d re-read and review his book, so here it is.


This is an excellent debut collection of poetry from British poet, Charlie Hasler.

In this book the author writes on a spectrum of emotional experiences, from the deepest despair, such as in ‘Dead As January’, to the truest words of love in ‘Bluest Moon Rare’. His words will resonate with many leaving you with hope and inspiration.

It’s difficult to choose a favourite but ‘Astride The In Between’ is simply beautiful, with its…

Atonement – (old post)

I wandered a broken man, 

Devoid of soul,

How my diamonds did roll,

And slice my barren hands.

 

On white-hot sands, of changing lands

I wandered amongst ghostly dunes.

With haunted eyes and muffled cries,

I hummed a quivered tune.

 

And met was I, by an echoed cry

Of a dog I know by name,

Red eyes glared, as mine froze scared,

His eyes a ruby blaze.

 

With a matchbox fumble and a liquored tumble,

I fell to my prayer-less knees.

And there I kneeled, with no strength to yield,

No words to muster my way.

 

It was at that moment, in the search for atonement,

The injury had become my own.

And there in the rain, the beast lay slain,

Alas, my truth had run me down.
