The author records his childhood experience of emotions being held back in 'Boys Don't Cry John'. While some poems look back, most are contemporary, such as those inspired by the lockdown and the Ukraine War.
The author advocates expression of feelings. This is powerfully expressed in relation to his experience of Friendship, both past and present. Transcendental beauty is a theme in the metaphysical poems 'The Colour Blue' and 'Roman Glass'.
However, each poem is unique. Many of them speak from the heart and have an emotional impact. The author hopes that these will resonate with readers.
