A lovely collection of poems, like finding a perfect shell on the beach - unexpected and beautiful. I do not profess to knowing anything about poetry but I do know about emotions and this collection makes you 'feel'. My favourites were 'Clouds Pass By','Tangled Thoughts and 'Shadow Fall'. I loved the change of pace with 'And Amid The Dark of Night' and the simplicity I found in reading 'Love Letter'. I could go on and on... suffice to say this is a wonderful body of work that should be read.

Having read Kevin Cowdall's terrific novella, Paper Gods and Iron Men, I was interested to see this collection of his poetry and was certainly not disappointed. His poetry is wonderfully descriptive and evokes thoughts of my younger days in many cases. I particularly enjoyed Haunted, my favourite piece in this collection. This is an easy to read, and very entertaining collection, easily worth five stars.
Another five star review for this collection of Kevin's poems. I have read some of them before in his other publications but others were new to me and I wasn't disappointed. The language and rhythm in the poems evoke powerful images and take you to familiar or new places in the imagination. Definitely worth a read and also checking out his other works.
