Denver, CO, October 22, 2006 --(PR.com
)-- Rebecca Johnson, a top-ten reviewer at Amazon.com has referred to the new poetry anthology, Eyes Of The Poet: Love and Passion in Lasting Splendor, as "exquisite lush perfection." Johnson writes that poet-editors 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."
Eyes Of The Poet: Love and Passion in Lasting Splendor, is an anthology comprised of over 50 poets from nine countries. These countries include: Canada, The United Kingdom, Australia, India, The Philippines, South Africa, Trinidad, The United States and Malta. Many of the poets in the book have been previously published in magazines, journals, audio CD's, other anthologies, and their own books of poetry.
Many of the individual poets captured the top reviewer's attention and of them she writes:
“Zayra Yves' poetry is breathtaking in beauty and unveils sensuous beauty...”
“Wanda Lea Brayton brings new beauty to images of reading...”
“The vivid imagery in ‘Japanese Garden’ [by Lynne Targett] makes you long for the scent of orange blossoms.”
“The lush intensity in Patricia Gibson-Williams poetry displays a deep connection with sensual writing.”
“Rohina Anand captures warm moments of connection.”
Rebecca Johnson goes on to say that, "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."
