Nature Island Verses
This small volume of poetry will enchant the reader with its simple and honest portrayal of life on a small, green island in the Caribbean where life takes on the idyll of paradise. The author writes about everyday experiences of love, life and politics in a style that sometimes reverts to the conventional, though more often strongly contemporary. The poems on love are passionate; but with a purity bordering on innocence. Those on life reflect the easy and simple philosophy of a world closest to nature, unhurried and safe. The poems on politics, however, bring to life the harrowing frailties of a democracy rooted in personal relationships and the overbearing possessiveness of the populace that uplift their representatives to the heights of virtual political deities.
The book is about love, life and politics and reflects the essential aspects of daily existence in a small island society with its joys and pathos and its emotional and spiritual struggles.
The book is captivating in its forthrightness and the ease with which the author takes the reader through the nuance of language and expression, full of Caribbean sound and colour.
