Poetic Whispers
By:  T.J. Collins
 
Reviewed by:
Realistic Poetry International

Paid Book Review

 
 
This magical book of romantic euphoric adventure is like the sun and the moon; bright, warm, intense, and powerful, yet calm, gentle, mystic, and just downright enchanting. To begin, we love the mysterious tone intertwined behind the theme of the book, even though it’s focused on love. The poems work together to make several significant points when considering something as fragile as love. And it is obvious that by the deep sincerity portrayed in Author Tracy Collin’s words, she is no amateur when it comes to experience and advice.

Identity and who we envision ourselves to be is ultimately the essence of how we will choose to take care of ourselves and what decisions we will make to do it. And from the moment we are born into the magnificently complex and competitive world, every ounce of nourishment and love becomes critical to the health and wellness of our development.

 Time On Hand 
By:  Author Dennis Ferado
 
Reviewed by:
Realistic Poetry International

Paid Book Review

 
Throughout the entire book, Ferado’s writing ability is never limited to one subject, topic, or thought; nor does it divulge any signs of lackluster; rather it is tantalizing, exploring the exotic and profound diversity of words through different classic writing techniques. A great example of this is his poem entitled, ‘Sweet Breeze Over Strawberry Fields’. Ferado replaces recycled monotonous phrases with fancily intricate locutions such as:

Universal Colloquies Inside of Me
By: Veronica Thornton


Reviewed by:
Realistic Poetry International

Paid Book Review

Veronica Thornton, Author of the book entitled, Universal Colloquies Inside of Me, is an exceptional woman of resilient strength, courage, and wisdom; and the works produced from this book is simply evidential proof. Through her poetry, you are able to effortlessly identify with everyday situations that we must deal with on a consistent basis. The interesting thing we found about Author Thornton's motivating compilation is the bittersweet, two-toned, honest interpretations on life. The dare to dream, but the heartache of a broken heart. The will to survive, even so, the instinctive desire to let go. The yearning for companionship, yet the liberation in independency.

Shadowed Tears

Paid Book Review

Like any human, heartsick and neglected, the character in this book yearns for a sunny day adorned with colorful bright rainbows, and seeks love to cure the psychological and spiritual sickness she is faced with; yet and still, with each verse you read, it is evident that hope and promise are swiftly slipping from her grasp, as she succumbs to the deception of defeat. Her weary voice, still youthful, indicates a certain degree of fear, but at the same time, an acceptance. Emotions and feelings that she writes about usually don’t make it any further than the pages of a diary, so even considering the incessant misery; it comes off as a bit shocking that she isn’t entirely ashamed to admit the dangerous vulnerability threatening her life and future or her deep sentiments of hopelessness.

Life, Sex & Death A Poetry Collection (Vol 1)
By: David Ellis

Reviewed by:
Realistic Poetry International

Paid Book Review

Ellis’s eloquent presentation makes for a sensational first impression, exerting wisdom supported by a profound sense of practicality. As a reader, it is important to note the great appreciation for the versatility of this book, as it is suitable for man or woman. The nonchalant, mellow tone that speaks through the voice of the book is understanding and his writing style compliments the empathetic and down-to-earth personality reflected throughout each poem. His voice is influential and persuasive enough that after reading and taking some of his advice from select poems, situations and issues that may have once appeared really big, may not feel so big after all, for many of his poems are optimistic, reassuring, and instill high levels of hope and confidence.

Review of:
diary of a sinner by Howard Smith

Reviewed by:
Realistic Poetry International

Paid Book Review

In Author Smith’s, ‘diary of a sinner’, before you can even set your eyes on a poem, you are instantly in for an unexpected surprise as you dive right into what appears to be, a story. The narrator contemplates back on his past using a raw, realistic writing technique, so real, some of the scenes feel as if they are nearly happening right before your eyes! Mr. Smith’s grand demonstration of a ‘raw’ and ‘outspoken’ approach gives you no choice but to pay attention. As he travels down memory lane, mentally, you feel as if you’re right there beside him, which can be difficult for a writer to accomplish.
