The Selected Poems of K Morris

The Selected Poems of K Morris

This book encompasses poems composed between 2013-19. The poems included here have been selected from ‘Lost in the Labyrinth of my Mind’, ‘My Old Clock I Wind and other poems’, ‘The Writer’s Pen and other poems’, ‘Dalliance; a collection of poetry and prose’, ‘Refractions’, and ‘The Girl who Wasn’t There’.

In addition a number of previously unpublished poems are included in this book.The poems range from those dealing with nature to others, which touch on the passage of time and mortality.

My Thoughts:

There is a wide range of poems in this book, the book is split into four different sections. When I read a poem now I always look into the poem more, Kevin the author has the ability to show that it is much more than a poem and that they will stay with you and you will remember them in time. There are a few poems that I liked the fridge’s hum, made me think of everyday objects that make noises and you don’t realise until they have stopped. One of the most powerful poems in this book is What is a double bed? It made me think that what I have I must cherish. I loved the section on nature, I am a big nature fan, I really liked all these poems and will be reading these poems over and over again when I need time to reflect.

Light and Shade serious (and not so serious) poems By Kevin Morris

Light and Shade serious (and not so serious) poems By Kevin Morris

Life is full of light and shade. For to be human is to experience joy, beauty, love, pain and laughter. This collection reflects all facets of human experience. hence the title ‘Light and Shade; serious (and not so serious poems)’.

My Thoughts:

I am really getting into poem books now, I like the fact that this one is divided into sections, one section has thought provoking and serious poems and the other has amusing poems. I enjoyed the majority of the poems Vanity was probably my favourite. I like poems that make you think but I also like poems that are funny and make me smile, Kevin has got a good balance of both here. A really good poem book.
