Today, I would like to introduce you to songwriter, poet and author, Kevin Cooper. I recently read Kevin’s book, Reflections, and enjoyed it a great deal.
What Amazon says
Reflections is a collection of poems, songs and muses written from the depths of the soul. If you like things that make you wonder like deja vu and dreams, this may be the book for you.
The lovely poems and songs by Kevin Cooper that are included in this collection are mainly optimistic and inspiring and, to a large extent, they revolve around love. You can sense the writer’s love of music and musical ability in the presentation of these poems which seem to vibrate to their own internal melody.
The lines are short and powerful, incorporated in to punch stanza’s which uplift the reader’s spirits.
One such extract from a poem called Together goes as follows:
The making of love
I have heard the author sing some of his works and I can almost hear his voice, sharing these delightful words.
Another beautiful stanza from a poem called Beautiful world goes as follows:
“In my beautiful world
A time for everything
Time for work
For people’s needs and cares
Time to enjoy what life can bring.”
Isn’t this just a wonderful message?
I recommend this book as a brilliant pick-me-up when you are feeling a bit down or even just a way to start your day with a happy smile on your face.
