Wordsmith DenHagan has been writing poems in various phases of his life. In his new book, "Poetry from the Heart," he shares a collection of poetic musings which he wrote during a memorable time in his life. The book dazzles in the range of themes that it examines but with the poet’s unique voice, each poem becomes immediate and relevant.
"Poetry from the Heart" contains over twenty-eight different types of poetry, with explanations and examples of each type. Many of his poems are romantic, such as "My Beloved," "Ode to Melissa," "To Love a Woman," "My Heart’s Desire," "Love," and "My Love." Others are inspirational, like "Forgiveness," "Hope," "The Seven Virtues," "Empathy," and "Kindness." There are also poetic pieces that are philosophical like "Living," "True Freedom," "Who Knows What Tomorrow Brings," and "The State of the Economy." Poems like "Life" could be said to be both inspirational and philosophical. Ultimately, all of the poems tell a compelling story of life and all the moments, emotions, experiences and lessons that make it more meaningful.
A journey for the soul and senses, "Poetry from the Heart" is proof positive of the power of poetry to comfort, inspire and even transform. Poetry lovers will be glad to include this volume in their collection.
