Another 5* REVIEW for ‘Petals of Vision’

A few years ago I began to see posts on Christopher Villiers’ Facebook page. The way he deeply and thoughtfully describes characters and stories from the Bible inspired me to read more of his work. I anxiously await each Facebook post!

It didn’t take me long to get my hands on a copy of his book Petals of Vision. It is full of poems about life. As we begin this New Year, what better way than to read Christopher Villiers’ book Petals of Vision. The very first poem New Year …… “I shed the old year, Letting its skin slip from me. A pale freshness shines, possibilities glowing, a lit path to somewhere new.” I wish many glowing possibilities to Christopher who has lit a path to somewhere new for me with his book.

Another 5* REVIEW for the poetry book “Petals of Vision”

This book is a true joy to read! Christopher’s poetry is deeply moving and dynamic. Yet the lines resemble swift brush strokes on an impressionist painting, they are actually full of profound meanings and symbols that aim directly at readers’ imagination and spiritual perception.

With his poetic thought, Christopher brings himself close to the tradition of William Blake’s visionary poetry. This book is a true joy to read.

A deeper journey. I have found Christopher’s poetry so moving, it takes one on a deeper journey. His ability to dig deep into our human condition is unnerving. I feel his poetry physically, his description of wanting or anxiety clenches my stomach, causes my heart to yearn. He is a talent that deserves your time.

Highly recommend. Touching and beautiful volume of poetry. The poems are personal and easily speak to one’s heart and experiences. Really enjoyed the volume (read it over two days) and already looking forward to Christopher’s next one.

A wonderful collection with a rich variety of subject matter. The poems on love lost and/or betrayed come straight from the heart, while the humorous verses show a mastery of subtle wordplay. Villiers is a poet with a soul, a conscience, and a distinctive poetic voice. Highly recommend.

5* REVIEW: From the Heart – A Journey of Love

FROMTHEHEART

Wonderful journey into the potential and power of poetry. I will be the first to admit that I did not get poetry until I read this book. I now understand poetry as a way to transport you to another world, to travel the world without leaving to go anywhere. This book has so many poems that you would think you had enough poetry for a lifetime. Each poem takes you to another world filled with mystery in which what is left out is just as important as what is there. My two favorites are Thank You, which is a poem for soldiers or veterans who are serving or have served their country. This one almost brought tears of thankfulness, both for the poem being written and for the joy of serving my country. My second was Capri for this is the first poem that actually brought to me what poetry is meant to be – a vehicle of imagination and dreams, to transport you to another part of the planet filled with God’s beauty. Cannot wait to go there. Finally, there are many poems that speak of forgiveness and sorrow, and seeking heaven. All the poems are infused with a subtle love of God and neighbor and family, and also what happens when you betray those high ideals of God, family, and your neighbors for selfish reasons. I recommend this book as a wonderful journey into the potential and power of poetry. Hopefully, it will kindle your love of this fine art form that thanks to this book, I am now beginning to appreciate.
