Every soul needs poetry. At times, we forget that it subtly vibrates within us, giving life and song to the rhythm of our thoughts and expressions. Colors and shapes are much more vibrant when we allow poetry to share space with our mind, allowing creativity to flow and thoughts to wander beyond the mundane and the expected, into a realm where hopes and dreams and inner expressions take center stage.
I acquired Atticus' "Love Her Wild" via my Kindle Unlimited Membership in mid August, 2021. I finished reading the book on August 27, 2021. It was a quick read as the majority of the poems are very short. Atticus is considered an "Instagram Sensation," writing poetry and quotes that capture flashes of moments and feelings with a few words. I would like to call the work within this book "musings" for that is the first thought that entered my mind after reading a few pages.
Some of the poems were very witty and captured by imagination and a few did not live up to the intended hype although I truly appreciate the writer's thoughts and efforts in stylizing the book, equipping it with various black and white photos that tell a story and different font styles and sizes which attest to the writer's efforts and creativity in attempting to visually stimulate the reader. This effort on the writer's part cannot be taken lightly. It is something I quickly noted and appreciated. The poems that I thought were strong carried the book well. They were original and thought provoking.
I think I am personally more privy to reading Shakespeare's Sonnets and Byron and Keats but I believe it is important to keep an open mind and venture forth in new territory and I was not disappointed in this creative work. This is Atticus' first book and I am looking forward to reading his other work with an open mind and heart. I do recommend this book.
If you read a book, please remember to leave a review on any site of your choosing. It acts as an incentive for other readers to purchase an author's book. Writers are super appreciative of this kind act.
