Hi, everyone! Happy Monday!
I teamed up with Booktasters once again to have the chance to review Within the Heart of Silence by James William Peercy and Jacqueline E. Smith.
Within the Heart of Silence is a collection of contemplative poetry and magnificent photographs. A majority of the poems are inspired by nature and finding oneself.
I quite enjoyed this collection. I love how the photos easily fit the poetry. As if the poems were written about the very images themselves. I'm not positive if that was intentional or just coincidental.
The one thing I didn't really enjoy was the author's constant rhythm. Each poem was written in the alternate rhyme scheme. I kind of wished for a little more variety in the rhyme scheme.
I definitely recommend this book to poetry lovers and nature lovers.
This book really leaves you thinking. Each poem inspires you to do a double take.
Thank you for reading everyone! And thank you to Booktasters and James William Peercy for giving me to opportunity to read this collection.
