These poems will take you through love, loss, inside your soul, and out into the world (and maybe, just maybe, help solve all the problems...). My favorite three poems are "buried alive," "watching the ice melt," and "dream."
If you like poetry, get this collection. You will thank yourself.
If you don't like poetry, get this collection, it will help you see how beautiful poetry can be.
(My only note would be, if you are like me and hate lines out of context and spoilers, skip the introduction...)
I go over and over in my mind the words, lines, and stanzas. They transport me to a place and time in Robert's poetry, and then an instance in my life when I felt the same way. I saw those fireflies, too! (Does that mean I'm cheating on my husband?)
Each poem is a small bomb that sets off an explosion and I see by that light.
I appreciate that the author lets you feel the all the emotions, but lets you see the hope and rebirth our lives hold.
One of the best things about the book is that it is dedicated to me. Honestly, take a look. That is me! Those three words made me sit up to see what he had to say, even before I knew what a powerful force his words would be.
Thank you, Robert Lee Brewer, for being a writer.

"Solving the World's Problems" captures the eclectic nature of this earth and those of us who inhabit it. It is not light reading, though light is scattered about. It is not dark, though there are ominous shadows that give me pause. I have to admit there are poems / phrases / points I had to read several times before the "ah-ha" moment clicked for me. And you know what? That's poetry.
Robert writes with intelligence, experience, and insight. His book makes me dig, and think, and feel, and experience with him. I can't say how many times I will read cover-to-cover, but I've had the book only a few days, and there are portions I've read at least half-a-dozen times -- and will probably read over and over through the coming decades.
