We are nothing but
Space dust
Trying to find
Its way back to
The stars.
Christian Serdon
This book was published months ago and it only received four ratings. FOUR RATINGS.

Well, people
often close
their eyes
at night

That they
never see
true beauty
for their
eyes are shut

That was my 'right-on-the-spot-poetry' because this book is epic. Not as epic as Love And Misadventures and Lullabies but somewhere not far below it. I loved poetry so much that I almost die reading some of other people's posts. David Jones is not a familiar author or rather poet to me but this is such a masterpiece.

Love and Space Dust has a few disarmingly genuine poems, things that sound poignant and honest, things that sound like they matter. The trouble is that the rest of the book is filled with stiff lines and things that just didn't appeal to me. The thing is though, those few really decent poems make the book worth at least reading through if not owning.
Actual rating: 3.5 stars. This book of poetry was good, no doubt, but I feel like there could have been more. I really enjoyed the ending chapter about The Spaceman and the Emperor.

"I love you
Until you became
Words and stories,
Poetry and dreams;
Immortal in every
Book and
Every sunrise."

This book made me smile, laugh, tear up, happy, sad, long for someone I'll never have. Or so I think. There's always that one person you think about when you read or write poems. And right there you realize how much time you've invested thinking of him. It becomes an addiction. So hard to quit. And when you think you finally got rid of it. Withdrawals sink in. And it's so much worse than the ad

How is it that he can emote with short lines feelings that you feel but have never written into words? Although extremely short, it makes me feel. I do feel at times there is just something lacking in the words - perhaps a feeling of insincerity that prevents it from getting five stars.

This is hands down my favorite collection of poetry! There are poems in this tiny book that I can relate to so wholeheartedly, that it breaks my heart.

"It is also true that, in all of time, there will be one love, one particular person, who stays in the heart forever. Everyone has experienced such a love, and most people, everyone in fact, has loved one person above all others, even if they are currently separated from them by millenniums end inconceivable spans of time. We have all felt this love, even if we are not aware of it. The strange, inexplicable yearning for the unknown experienced late at night, the sense of heartbreak tugging at ...more

I came across this book from browsing good reads and read some impressive reviews, so I thought I should give this book the humble chance. After reading this, I believe young David Jones has compiled a series of short poems expressing love and pain. I believe the series of short poems are written well although I feel that they are not quiet yet finished. Simply written pomes and very easy to read and understand. I have read far more in-depth and much more expressive poetry in my time however I ...more

Recommends it for: the universe
Love and space dust! Two of my favorite things!

Maybe it's that very bias that led me to give this book five stars, but so be it. I adored this book and highlighted a good deals of passages. A lovely read I would recommend to anyone and everyone.
the girl who waited
such a beautiful collection. reminded me of the doctor & clara's relationship (if i'm being honest.) pretty and short and bittersweet. loved it. own, if not read, this book.
