PETALS OF VISION
By Christopher Villiers
- Christopher Villiers’s lyrics fill the soul with love, humility and depth . . . He is a superb writer who reinvigorates personalized memories or a similar ambiance drawn from the verses depicted in subtle implications that embody hope, sympathize with sorrow along with exuberance and triumphs. He is genuinely a poet who takes life to the fullest. Readers will revel in Villiers’s Petals of Vision that will imprint in the memory, plus relish each stance while absorbing every phrase until the end - Hadel S. Ma'ayeh, Huffington Post Passionista and author of From the Heart: A Journey of Love.
- Christopher Villiers’s new collection titled Petals of Vision offers deeply felt poetry in a wide variety of forms and covering subjects. Here are sonnets that chart the highs and lows of human love, short lyrics inspired by nature, and also some delightful ‘nonsense poems’ voiced for different animals – for example, the excellent and satiric Parliament of Owls. There are many moving little touches and poems which are, in his words “Petals of grace” that “Spread blessing/Unseen by the wider world” - Reverend Malcolm Guite, Ph.D., Chaplain and Supervisor, Girton College, Cambridge University.
- In this wonderful second collection of poems, Christopher Villiers again sings “the universe into ... rhyme” and weaves nature with religious allusion in suggested tales of love’s loss and gain. Here are deft and lucid vignettes, sturdy poems of yearning, new found resolve, and -- on occasion -- humour too - Gerard Loughlin, Ph.D., Professor of Theology and Religion, Durham University.
Petals of Vision is an anthology of 72 poems and sonnets in which the vicissitudes of human love are addressed through lyrics and flawless rhymes that fill the soul with love, sorrow, hope, joy, humility, depth, and even laughter. Presented through a world characterized by versatility and surrounded by symbolism, sincere images, and heartfelt thoughts, this new anthology gives readers of classic poetry a great opportunity to revel once again, as its contents imprint on the memory for a lifetime.
