Simple Things: An Anthology of Poetry Review

About The Book:
This book is a voyage of self-awareness...the sad times, the glad times, and those times that lie in-between. Love, Gratitude, Hope and Inspiration will be explored. You will see how a tremendous joy, and a sense of self - discovery can appear out of sadness.
We are - not that much different...you and I, we each hunger - to see... the love - in another's eyes. I hope to share some of the love, of Jesus Christ, a selfless love, that changes lives. In my view...it is only in - "The struggle"...that the best in life is found. This anthology - has no beginning and no end. We are more the same than different and we all share many similarities. The one thing - that we do not do...is to see the world, with exactly the same bank of knowledge, experience and attitudes.You can purchase Simple Things at this link.

My Review:
Basket flower,Mr. Fletcher has written a golden nugget of encouragement in his recent book Simple Things. Looking through Simple Things you will begin to relize it isn't just another book of poetry. Fetaured inside are several different poems broken down into groups.
And those topics included:
  • God's Love
  • Gratitude
  • Hope
  • Inspiration
  • Special Loves
  • Tuesday is for Grinning
  • Personal Struggles
Reading thruogh Simple Things I was immediatly drawn to several different poems. But I believe my favorite one was The Lord's Prayer. I really liked it because it describes what God is like and how we should do in our Christian walk. The Lord's Prayer makes me think of what I should be like and how I should change. It also reminds me that God is the only way we will make it in this life. And without him, we have nothing.

This first anthology of poetry has no beginning and not end. The journey of self-discovery can be frightening, exhilerating, confusing, liberating, and often best undertakenaccompanied by a careing voice. Preston's poetry shiningly serves as such a voice for all who wish to begin a journey of their own.
