I Wrote This For You: Just the Words by: pleasefindthis

Image      It has been a long time since I have read some poetry but this was just the compilation to get me back into it.  One of the things that I find the most amazing about poems is that not only does it hold a different meaning for everyone that reads it; every time that you read it, it can mean something else completely.  Poetry is a method of writing that allows the reader to provide the meaning.  Each poem is read in a context that is specific to that individual in that moment of time.

Central Avenue Publishing has written this description on their blog: “Pleasefindthis is the work of two very talented individuals, poet Iain S. Thomas and photographer, Jon Ellis. These two gentlemen, who live across the world from each other, created the blogging phenomenon I Wrote This For You back in 2007. Since that time, they have won the hearts of countless thousands of fans from around the world with haunting prose and vivid and poignant photography.

Their first book: a full colour version of the photos and selected poems from the blog was released in 2011; and we now are happy to present a more full collection of the poetry with select new photography. It presents twice the number of entries with over 400 works, including several new and never before seen poems. Each section of the book portrays aspects of our journey through life in all aspects of the human experience.” (http://centralavenuepub.wordpress.com/2013/12/06/new-release-i-wrote-this-for-you-just-the-words-by-pleasefindthis/)

I am a big fan of the Postsecret website and book series and this reminds me of that phenomenon.  I highly recommend this book.
