5.0 out of 5 starsThis is poetry? I never knew...
Reviewed in the United States on March 2, 2016
I was fortunate enough to narrate this book for Audible. Honestly I'm not that keen on poetry but this book was different. Much in the style of classical poets the actual stories... the poems... within relate to so many contemporary events and social styles that I found my self making comparisons. As advertised there are no words of despair or anger but rather a full dose of hope and encouragement to the human spirit... who needs that? So as a self anointed "tough guy", I was genuinely touched... and blessed by this incredible man's writings. There's something in it to touch everyone... I'm sure.
I really enjoyed it from start to finish. The poems were great and I loved how they were just so simple and easy to read, as the other reviewer said, a lot of people obsess with using huge words and trying to rhyme, so this was a wonderful change!

I absolutely love the empathic and implied "feminine side".
HUGE opening with "Song of the Prophet"."Home" is my favourite and a heck of a way to close though there are sporadic places and dis-places of pure brilliance (such as "On Climbing Mountains" ), almost Shakespearean in tempo.
