Dennis Gray’s Book of Poetry:
Thoughts On Life in Rhyme & Sculpture – End of an Era
The mind of a creative person is a strange one indeed. “Thoughts on Life in Rhyme & Scripture” is a self-analytical look through poetry and verse by Dennis Gray an original, refreshing and sometimes disconcerting look at life by an artist of great insight wit and empathy. With unique and creative verse taking his own way with the English language, “Thoughts” is a choice pick for those seeking an original collection of poetry which meditates on the complexities, joys, and meaning of the wonders and bummers of life. “In My Dreams Tonight”: The power of your aura / Pervades my quietude. / I’ll see you in my dreams tonight / To share this marvelous mood. / Reflecting on my image / Of perfection which surrounds you. / A dreamscape is a perfect place / To appreciate that I found you. / Warmed by rays of sundown, / Envisioning your glistening smile, / Soothed by the tease of evening’s breeze / I’ll see you in a while.

Reading at night with a glass of wine. As I read the poetry the words rang home and real. Written to impart wisdom in a style of grace and substance from the words of a poet and artist. I loved it and am re-reading it and will continue to do so.

Powerful thoughts and vision. Dennis Gray’s beautiful poetry gives us the inner vision of personal thoughts and introspection which touches our own sensibilities…making one pause and reflect on what is important, meaningful and true about our own lives… we are enriched by the images of his powerful sculptures and this combination creates a book important to read for one’s soul and spirit.

Very enjoyable read. Consider the balancing acts of life and ride the ebb and flow softly while engaging your senses in the joy that Mr. Gray presents in pictures and prose.

Very enjoyable read. Dreams, focus, perspective…The author touched upon many facets of daily life in a very profound way. I enjoyed reading a few poems each day and savoring the words as opposed to devouring it in one evening. I look forward to his next book.

Poetry at its best! Great little book to read in front of a warm fire on a cold winter day. Poems are well written and amusing to read. The photographs that accompany each poem are lovely to look at. Nicely put together! Kudos to Mr. Gray on a great achievement!
