These are the essential qualities of a good poet and of a good man. Randy Barber shows us in this well crafted collection of inspirational poetry that he practices all three. His poems remind us who we are, how good life can be, and how much God loves us.Whether musing humorously on the unfair fate of the turkey in Unsung Hero But millions more each year are killed,So we can have our stomachs filled,Their sacrifice seems so lame,So we can doze, during the game.
or passing on to us the natural pleasures of life that we often fail to notice, as in Rain The smell you make makes all things cleanand Free Pleasures Have you stopped to smell the roses, have you sat back and sipped tea,Have you listened to cicadas as they fly from tree to tree?or lamenting the arrival of a teenage daughter into the worldly dangers of her teenage yearsShe wants to be so popular, so all will think shes coolBut soon a reputation, and soon she is the fool.the poet reminds us that, despite the hustle and bustle of the world and the ungodly distractions within it for our overly large egos, we are yet loved by a God who cares and who wants us to flourish:The blood was shed for us and now we may have peace.A quiet afternoon or evening reading Rhyme with Reason will bring you a little of that peace.
