Do you enjoy poetry, especially short poems with universally applicable ideas and themes? If so, I invite you to give a new book by a new author a try. ‘Fits of Tranquility’ by Robert Lampros is described as ‘a book of poetry and prose about hope, healing, perseverance, and joy, as well as faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and falling in love.’
Containing over 20 unique poems and short stories, this book ranges in topic from inspiring images of nature to thought-provoking stories filled with charming dialog and everything in between. With some portions, the intent of the author is very clear while at other times the meaning is more vague, leaving readers to bring their own perspectives to the words. A few of my favorite selections include: ‘Verdure’, ‘For What It’s Worth’, and ‘Invisible Arms’.
If you are searching for a collection of succinct bits of poetry that are sure to bring a smile to your lips or a new thought to your mind, this book is a nice choice. Although at certain points it is clear to discerning readers that Mr. Lampros is a beginning writer still finding his voice, this adds rather than detracts from the charm and simplicity of the book. Overall, I would recommend giving ‘Fits of Tranquility’ a try – and will be watching for future releases of more poetry and stories by Robert Lampros.
I am grateful to the author for sending me a free copy of this book, in exchange for an honest review. All opinions expressed are my own.
