What a lovely little book! I first found this book hoping to just get a broader taste of some of the more recent poets, but was pleasantly surprised to find that this book not only had great poetry, but also people's thought processes, advice, and inspirations. What a better work to read during National Poetry Day? If only I had known it existed beforehand. Re-reading this book is definitely something I hope to do when the day rolls back around!

This book would also serve as an amazing education

The layout used in this book of collected poems is clever. There's a poem, author bio, tips on writing, and a selected poem from a well-known poet. It really breaks it up and makes 'Light' easy to read. My favourite piece here is "Playing with Stars" by Brian Moses but "Beware The Grey" by Paul Cookson is a close second. This is a freebie, by the way, so there's no excuse for not reading it.

I read this book as a celebration for the World Poetry Day. It has beautiful poems on light. I feel that I am very intimate with sunlight and loved most of the poems in this collection. Getting inspired, I also wrote my own poem on sunlight. The poem on light ending this book by Tagore and a poem on light and how our experience with light is more spiritual than scientific by Emily Dickinson were my two most favorite poems from this little gem of a book...

A great little collection of poems brought together all using the theme of light.

Each poet has a section of the book dedicated to them where it says little about who they are, shows the poem they created using the theme of light, what their inspiration is to writing poems, some writing tips on how they create them along with a favourite poem of theirs by someone else. A great reference book for people who want to get a feel for whether they would like poetry – either to read or maybe have a go a

This was a free download for National Poetry Day. It's a nice little collection on the theme of light and there are several gems in there. Most of all it reminded me that I keep meaning to read more poetry! Maybe next year.
