    I thoroughly enjoyed reading Donne Righting Poetry, by David Royce Phillips. The title, of course, gives fair warning that the volume contains much tongue-in-cheek wordplay. Phillips clearly delights in language, and enjoys bending it to his own (and our) amusement. This playful attitude is realistically balanced by the profound, reflective, and at times, desperately painful subject matter. Though "If It Weren't for the Colour Blue..." will remain a perennial favourite, it is the beautifully mystical "Illuminations" which I return to most frequently. I especially appreciate how Phillips has crafted accessible poems which, upon further review, reward the reader with ascending layers of meaning. An alchemical treat! Catharine ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- On any given day I can pick up David's collection of poems and find a word or a phrase or a feeling that I can resonate with. This group of poems... More > comes from David's life, but could be from any of our own. The free flowing style is more like having a conversation or a discussion with an intimate and allows the reader to delve into their own interpretations and experiences. Each time I pick up this book I find another meaning in the words. This compilation of poems offers something for everyone. I found it was thought provoking, inspirational and relatable. I truly enjoyed the experience of moving through the pages and questioning what this author was thinking about as he jotted down his words. This small gem is a must for aspiring poets and poetry lovers alike and I found myself reading it over an over again. Christine< Less
