"A Few Moments with John," a new collection of poems by John Wesley Waddell, masterfully blends private insight with fond reflections on life's experiences. Waddell's poems fall into four discrete categories: Reality, Religious, Nostalgic, and Experience. These categories serve to emphasize his view on the primary challenge faced by every versifier: finding the exceptional words that will immediately immerse the reader deeply and fully in the poet's world view. While rarely straying from strict poetic form, Waddell meets this challenge head on. His words are intelligent and intuitive, passionate and persuasive, and yield layers of meaning with each new reading.show more
