This sophomore effort from poet Justin P Lambert includes both free verse and more structured forms, including a number of haiku. Each section includes an essay on various topics of interest to the average human. Read some reviewers' kind words:
"This collection of poems does a remarkable job of exploring the nature of humanity, reality, the power of thought and mindset. I enjoyed the journey taken with the author through his heartfelt expressions. You get to develop a sense of what the author values and cherishes and has concern over. This is mature rumination and introspection !!"
"It’s like a quaint cabin in the woods, familiar but still new. I enjoyed the essays at the beginning of the 5 sections, they gave his thought process on why he wrote these poems. The poems are both free verse and rhyming. Not filled with lots of melodramatic metaphors, what is laid out in verse is easily understood.
Definitely worth reading!"
"Honest writing is the charm that makes this a delightful collection. Despite almost becoming preachy during the creation section of the collection, reading a poem about holding hands with his wife in bed shows the power of personality on writing. Certainly worth your time to read."

About the Author
I tend toward genre fiction in both my short stories and my novel work. Primarily sci-fi and fantasy, although some other interesting themes occasionally surface. My poetry is almost exclusively what I like to call “speed poems” meaning I’m not agonizing over a space or a comma. I’m dashing out a first draft as fast as possible with a goal of crystallizing a particular moment in time or a feeling. Then, if I look back at it at all, it will be to decide if it makes the cut or not. I’m not going to edit, I’m not going to polish. Maybe I’m wrong, but I feel like that sucks the life out of a poem. If it does make the cut, I save it and will eventually publish it. I’ve also written quite a few essays under the general topic of Timeless Principles. Basically, these are musings on living a better, more fulfilling and more successful life through basic, time-honored, common sense principles for living. Although I’m a very religious person, I’ve tried hard NOT to make these essays religious in nature because I don’t feel this is the proper format for religious writing. But, you’ll probably recognize many of these principles as appearing in your holy book of choice. That’s not because they’re religious, per se, but because they work. So, relax for a bit and read to your heart’s content. If you’re pleased, leave a friendly comment and I’ll get back to you to thank you for doing so.
