"We should all be a ray of sunshine when there is no sunshine in the world."
Andrew Daniels' eclectic mix of poetry speaks of love, honor and truth, all portrayed through his intense and powerful imagery. These themes are interwoven with hope and resilience along with a smattering of despair. There is a journey through time from the Vikings to gallant medieval knights, from the Dirty Thirties to the Swinging Sixties and a sensual stroll through the seasons. All this is interspersed with pockets of humor and joyful celebrations along with some moving messages. There is a rainbow around the corner of every page.
A blacksmith of literature, Andrew Daniels has taken his words out of the fire and hammered them into inspiration. He takes us on a journey, weaving wonder into the fabric of our imagination.
"Follow your dreams and one day you will reach the end of the rainbow..."
Love is lighter than a feather and heavier than gold.
Hold onto hope with both hands and never let go.
No matter what happens, my mistakes from the past will not take the wind out of my sails.
"When boys become men and girls become women, they are no longer dwarfs. They are giants."

Andrew Daniels has intertwined an inspiration of old and new, love and intimacy, and music and art to create over ten poems that speak to the heart, mind, and soul of Spirit. From poems like Let's Burn Rubber Baby, Multiple Choice Test, My Heart Is My Guitar and Camera One Camera Two, you will see into the mind of this author. Andrew Daniels’ writing takes on a thespian aura. It is as if he is approaching his poetry as an actor acting out the characters of the poems on stage. Each poem incites a different element of emotions and thinking. I enjoyed reading Andrew Daniels’ work because of how he approached each piece. It appears as if he carefully selected pieces that would not overshadow each other, but bring an element of complementary flair to the book. My favorites - Multiple Choice Test and Camera One Camera Two - offered an idea of how we view and see things not always as they are, but as how society dictates that we should see them, as in reading Push, Push, Push. “The hardest things to buy are the things money can’t buy. Friends, family, and love are a few of those things” says Andrew Daniels, but instead we tend to focus on the tangible things that money can buy that leave us alone and empty. If you are looking for poetry with inspiration, add this one to your library.
