Poems of Gratitude and Hope
by James Crews
I very, very much like this title. It is a collection of poetry that I read first thing in the morning, last thing at night or anytime that I want to feel better about the world and myself. Each poem is absolutely not abstruse and offers something to which the reader can relate. There are some poets known to me, including Amanda Gorman, but most are new discoveries. This means that each poem is an exploration, albeit a short one.
A brief quote from the first poem sets the tone:
Hope has holes
in its pockets.
It leaves little crumb trails
so that we,
can follow it.
If this excerpt appeals to you, you will want to own this book. It offers a promising way of viewing our universe.
