A whole "new" way to write poetry...use it to actually tell a story. Scott R. Welvaert has succeeded in making poetry an interesting journey, rather than a series of unrelated, pretentious exercises in flowery language. In following the path of the main characters through well-crafted vignettes, offering glimpses into each of their lives and describing their journey, I was drawn from each poem to the next because I cared for the characters and wanted to hear their story. While the subject matter is very serious and handled with sensitivity, I enjoyed the vivid descriptions, refreshingly written from a man's perspective. A great read and an enticing view into what poetry could really be, I heartily recommend "Pacific."
