Overview

Ed, you've captured the essence of the many footprints we leave along this journey of life, some that seem to take us down paths that find us standing alone with burdens and loved ones we lost and grief, loneliness, pain we've encountered along the way, and yet when moments of recollection come especially occasions such as this as you themed your poem with, the lost love recultivated and to cherish for life... that embraces us for all that has made us who we are, it makes each footstep seem as if it was taking us...

More About This Book

Overview

Ed, you've captured the essence of the many footprints we leave along this journey of life, some that seem to take us down paths that find us standing alone with burdens and loved ones we lost and grief, loneliness, pain we've encountered along the way, and yet when moments of recollection come especially occasions such as this as you themed your poem with, the lost love recultivated and to cherish for life... that embraces us for all that has made us who we are, it makes each footstep seem as if it was taking us into a place of destiny that makes every moment worth it all. Beautifully scripted, Ed so realistic when it was worded by a pro like you... and your closing verses lend wings of inspiration that lift the heart and soul into higher realms. Wonderful poetry takes on another realm when the closing is beautiful and touches the heart in a soft linger, exactly what this does...

    Sharing a Rich Spirit

    Ed Roberts is one of those quiet folks who, without brouhaha or hype or inflated pomp, simply elects to share his thoughts gathered from observing life with a keen eye that have been mulled over until they casually spill onto the page as 'poems'. This collection of supportive thoughts and heartfelt caring advice is titled WHISPERS, TEARS, PRAYERS and HOPE and to attempt to define it further would defeat the concept of Roberts' intentions. He has found a colleague in Chase Von who wisely elected to publish this collection, and for those who are familiar with the publisher's own works (''YOUR CHANCE TO HEAR THE LAST PANTHER SPEAK' etc), the bond will make sense. <BR/><BR/>Knowing that this is one book the 'usual negative commenter team' will viciously attack should not prevent even the more sophisticated reader from exploring the pages of this book: a hefty dose of Ed Roberts' musings might resolve some of those angry people's drive to destroy other people's opportunity to make their own decisions. No, this is not 'great poetry' of polished form, cadence, or style. Those attributes, much as we love to encounter them in the form of works by TS Eliot, Auden et al, are not the goal of Ed Roberts. The pages of this book are filled with well structured condensed messages about struggling with alcohol, drugs, war, hate, family fragility, abuse, death, and questions about spirituality, tough choices such as right to live, the seemingly impossible attempts to aid hunger at home and abroad, and the saving of the planet, as well a some of the loveliest thoughts of beauty and passion and love available to the reader today. <BR/><BR/>So this collection of simple, straightforward, embracing thoughts serves as the kind of support we all need at one time or another. To put these poems in too critical a light would be a disservice. As in the author's words - 'Today the world stands in need of so many things/ My simple prayer/ Is that you might find at least a little of what you seek/ Here among the pages of my life'. WHISPERS, TEARS, PRAYERS and HOPE is a gift, a timely one, and it deserves to be read by everyone who has a human spirit. Grady Harp
