A beautfully crafted series of poems covering all aspects of love and romance. Joyful, bittersweet and sensual these poems explore the connections, and sometimes the breaks, that individuals make from the first rush to love to the long haul of building a joint life.
Poems such as "Intermingling" brilliantly acknowledge the complicated nature of love, showing the good the bad and the ambigious. The desperate longing that we can suffer is present ("Imagining A Day With You"), as is the undescribable pain of hurt and heartache in lines such as / But the inconceivable sins of life crush us / from "Love Beyond The Shadow Of A Doubt" The author clearly understands love - and words - deeply, but doesn't claim to know every mystery of this aspect of life; for example the heart-rending close of "Never to Love Again" leaves us wondering once more about the bewildering demands of the heart - even to oneself.
An excellent and comprehensive take on love all in varied, accessible, wonderful poetry.
"Love is a mysterious wonder / Careful .... or it will pull you under"
Allow yourself to be swept away Beneath the Canopy, as these timeless poems speak to your heart and soul. This is the perfect book for dreamers, lovers, and fantasy seekers.
