Poetic Potpourri: A Collection of 101 Selected Poems for Your Reading Pleasureby Alexander R. Lim
- LendMe LendMe™ Learn More
This is a rather small selected collection of 101 poems written over the years covering various subjects which should be of interest to everyone. Anyone should be able to find a poem to his liking, as the poems are so varied and appeal to all age groups. I started writing in high school but there was a long hiatus due to time constraints taken up by medical schooling and the residency training years - leaving hardly any time for outside activities.
I started writing again when I was stationed at Ft. Sill, OK, during the Desert Shield / Desert Storm conflict as part of my deployment while in the US Army Reserves. I was asked by the Editor of our Medical County Society's magazine - "Coastal Bend Medicine" to write something about my experience while still at Ft. Sill. I wrote an essay and decided to include a poem to go along with it - "The Citizen Soldier" - honoring our various services reservists. However, It's just been in the past few years that I have "rediscovered" my penchant for writing again - for my own enjoyment and to share with family and friends, and now with you.

A five-star? Definitely yes. This collection of poems is different - it's written fro the heart, the author with the author baring his soul for all to see. In this case, to read. At $2.99, it's my best steal of the day.
This collection is contemporary- each poem puts you at a vantage point that feels just right. And yes, it is more enjoyable when read out loud.
The title says it all - a variety of themes, 101 of them. The are all different and a joy to read ALOUD! That's the only way to read it. I enjoy poetry and I definitely enjoy this one.
