One of my personal favorites in the book is a joint effort with fellow writer Fiona Summerville, the poem “Indelible” as the two harmonize with a literary duet tracing the power of words for two lovers writing from afar to begin their poetic love affair which becomes something much more (“pouring obscene promises in smudged trails / an illicit manifesto meant for their eyes alone / feverish scribbles keeping time…”).
I would say for someone unfamiliar with his poetry, I might recommend first some of Lincoln’s earlier works MINE: BODY & SOUL and SWEETEST NOTHINGS, the latter which has the added bonus of his storytelling through inventive short stories, too. (And for which I just realized I never did leave a high mark out on GoodReads and Amazon yet! Doh...next item on the list!) But SIDEWAYS RAIN is a treat in itself and worth the read! I look forward to strolling through whatever new storytelling forest Lincoln explores next.
Those who have read Cameron's words, both poems and novels, know what an fabulous writer he is, and this new book does not disappoint, I can guarantee you.
His words truly touch you, move you at the core of your soul, because they are raw and pure, yet his writing remains delicate and full of beauty at the same time.
The poems are about a wide range of topics, some are about relationship, love, sensuality, others about loss or life in general.
I absolutely love this wonderful collection for many reasons, but one is his choice of words. Each poem is carefully waved with beautiful words, and Cameron has this ability to take you in a ride that will leave you breathless from the first word to the last one.
Also, I believe that his passion for writing truly shines through the pages, the poems are intense and really meaningful.
A last point I will add, is the fact that it's really quick and easy to read, and most importantly, you can come back on a few poems whenever you need a fix of poetry and great words.
Emotional and absolutely amazing, Cameron has achieved yet again a real masterpiece ! Well deserved 5 stars !
