In his debut collection of published poetry, Leroy G. Carey shows why his is a unique new voice in the world of poetry. Writing on a variety of subjects including love, romance, imagination, color, and laughter, Mr. Carey draws from a wealth of personal experience to make readers feel true emotion. His poetry book, Goldmine: A Book of Poems and Beautiful Love Stories, is just that... a gathering of heartfelt verse that proves just how vulnerable a human being can be. It is also a tribute to the strength we all have to overcome whatever obstacles life throws at us. For example, the poem 'In the Grace of Your Love' shows the poet's ability to rise above feeling 'sad and blue' when he concludes: 'For I had found a place in / Her heart. so kind,, so gentle / For only an angel from heaven / Can offer me more and / I am proud to stand / In the grace of her love.' Elsewhere, Mr. Carey questions the definitions attached to everyday emotions in 'What Is Love?' when he writes: 'What is love? Someone tell me / For I would like to know / Is it here in my heart or is it / There on my mind or is it / There on the other side of the / Rainbow?' By opening to any page in this thought-provoking book, readers can surely find themselves.
