Artists often draw inspiration from their daily life. Whether they are sculptors, painters, filmmakers or another type of artist, the root of the work can generally be traced to a life experience. For author Edward Wilson, life serves as inspiration for his poetry. Wilson invites readers to enjoy his new collection of poems, “Reflections of a Poet's Mind” (published by AuthorHouse).
Wilson’s poetry covers many facets of daily life, ranging from loving someone, to dreams versus reality. Wilson believes “good poetry is love” – a message he hopes to get across in his new collection.
An excerpt from the poem “Come to me and hold my hand,” in “Reflections of a Poet’s Mind”:
“We reach for each other with a warm embrace;
I see the smile upon your face.
I know you feel the same as me;
both ours hearts are running free.”
Wilson aims for his poetry to inspire within readers the warmth and love he feels in life.
