(You can read "The Thunder Was so Mad" by visiting the following link: http://www.nourish.com/the-thunder-was-so-mad). "I found this book of poetry to be so emotional and raw - there was so much more emotions of all kinds. Your writing is so strong in this book. I had visceral reactions to many of the poems, which was good! Uniquely." (A quote from a poet.) If you like the baffling word play of Wallace Stevens, or the bleak dryness and the show-no-emotion style of T.S. Eliot’s poems, “Poetry is an escape from personality.” (Eliot), then this book is not for you. But, if you like the straightforwardness of Robinson Jeffers, Walt Whitman or Edna Vincent Millay, then 50 poems in this book could be a treat for you.
