Gilleland Poetry - Storoems and Poems - Review


"Retired professor of Microbiology, Harry Gilleland certainly has a variety of experiences and thought-provoking insights to share in his latest poetry book, Gilleland Poetry - Storoems and Poems. Harry's poetry has appeared at numerous establishments over the years and he has authored three books to date. His dedication to and love of poetry is evident in the way that he writes his work.

Evocative and mentally stimulating throughout it's 205 pages this book is sure to strike a cord within any reader. War experiences and trials of man are mingled with true-life experiences, fantasy, love and nature.

Harry explores the wonders of nature in a beautiful way and returns to the theme that seemingly runs throughout the entire book - what it could mean for man. Fun, playful - sometimes sad. He has us riding the rapids with him one moment and learning shocking news about American history in the next breath.

Bluebird Rescue and You Snake in the Grass were two of my favorites because they invoke awe of nature. But I also got a real kick out of The Power of Splinters and One Leaf's Journey, which are clearly parallels to life experiences.

I really cried over A Journey Home and Alfred Must Die. The author's deep endearing love for his wife is both moving and inspiring.

Though this might sound a little corny - I felt I lived a little more because of reading this book."
