Exquisite Lush Perfection 17 Oct. 2006
By Rebecca of Amazon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
"you laugh and
a river of warmth
flows into me
because for now...
I swim in your love"
~Kimberly B. George, When Love Flows

Eyes of the Poet is a book so exquisite, you may find yourself completely lost within the romantic dream of love, only wishing to experience everything a poet experiences in moments of perfection. Brian Douthit and David Robertson have created an elegant and emotionally fulfilling experience where life is lived as art and poets play with words in sensual beauty.

This is a collection of poems to celebrate love and passion as seen by over fifty poets from nine countries including: Canada, The United Kingdom, Australia, India, The Philippines, South Africa, Trinidad, The United States and Malta.

Zayra Yves' poetry is breathtaking in beauty and unveils sensuous beauty in a morning filled with cherry blossoms and a kiss mingling with tastes of olive oil and basil. Wanda Lea Brayton brings new beauty to images of reading as she remembers how her lover turns her pages with a "soft whisper" and reads her with a "silk-spun touch." The vivid imagery in "Japanese Garden" makes you long for the scent of orange blossoms.

"we speak in
breathless whispers
as I trace your lips with my fingertips
searching your eyes
for my soul"
~Rohina Anand, Whispers

Rohina Anand captures warm moments of connection. The lush intensity in Patricia Gibson-Williams poetry displays a deep connection with sensual writing. "Eyes of a Poet" holds some of the most beautiful poetry you will ever read in its soothing embrace.

This collection takes you beyond sensual creativity and introduces you to the unique soul of each poet. Exquisite, intoxicating, comforting and deeply intimate, these poems let you swim in the soul of the writer like nothing I've ever felt before. If this book was a delicious secret, it is one you would want to share with someone you love. The lush imagery truly speaks for itself and leads you on a poetic journey of the heart.

"in my winter room I listen
to the night wind
unbuttoning the clouds,

throwing water stars,
blue-tinted liquid florets,
against the window"

~Nicolette van der Walt, Eyes of the Poet

As you finish reading this elegant poetic escape, you may remember the ending to Diane Anjoue's poem where she captures a deep heart longing:

"waiting only
to be lost within again..."

~The Rebecca Review

A Distinct Honor 8 Mar. 2007
By Wanda L. Brayton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I have a poem included in this incredible offering from some of the world's finest (as yet) unknown poets from around the world. They are not only brilliant artists, they are also some of the most compassionate, intelligent and loving people I've had the pleasure to know. It is a distinct honor to be among them. I am humbled by their graciousness and talents. This is a worthy piece to add to anyone's collection.

A nice collection of poems 24 Jan. 2010
By Ava Anathema - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I also have a poem included in this book, so obviously it was quite exciting to read and to see what other works were included. This book has a nice mix of voices, and is sure to have something for everyone. This book is great for poetry enthusiasts and romantics alike.
I know another poet giving a review. 16 Sept. 2013
By Patricia Williams - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
But honestly unless you purchase this book through my Amazon store I don't make a dime off the sales. Such a beautiful collection of poetry. You will not regret investing your money and time into this stunning book. I treasure my copy as it includes the works of some of my favorite poets. When I read about it and saw the list of poets I had planned to purchase one even if I hadn't had the great honor of being among them.
