Format: Kindle Edition
Buy this book. James will then ambush you though your own eyes. The opening poem, In Our Dreams, is simply brilliant: "I sleep alone/ miles away/ and hear your thoughts/ over the thundering distance,/ feel your shallow breath on the pillow,/ watch you tangle in the loose sheets." Again in You Lie Weightless we have a love poem of deep subtlety. These two are favourites in this collection, as is Snow Softly Falls. It is impossible to convey the power with which these poems deliver the experience to the reader, impossible I say as I do my best to show this to you in small quotes. The poems simply march forward with cumulative effect.

In April 12 we have a parting, and a bit of mysticism, perhaps reincarnation: "... releasing/ my pained silence./ I screamed across the plains of long ago/ and across the table now I whisper/ I have always loved you."

All of this from the first four of forty-one poems. Anything beyond this has to be pure gravy, and the quality does not let up. James has produced something that will shift your mind, and for sure deliver the experience of each poem to each reader. In another favourite, Life Lines, we have an unimportant moment in traffic suddenly caught up in a deeply personal memory - which is the only remaining connection to the other person: "If you were to look out your window now/ you may sense that I have passed,/ once again, yes, I have passed on from your life,/ but for the memory of our passion/ on a hot August night."

Being one with nature occurs in Too Long, where we have this: " ... an owl to cry,/ a mockingbird to speak/ the language of the embracing night./ It began here for me./ I fell drunk with the world/and lost my senses./ I've stayed away too long.

Poetry is alive and well. Eliott James' beautifully written poetry eloquently expresses emotion in such a way....that it feels timeless.

A wonderful collection of poems. Elliott is definitely a spiritual being. Would recommend his book and hope that he has more coming in the future.
