A Little About James L. Finley As a Poet
When I heard that James L. Finley was planning to publish a poetry book I was very excited. I couldn’t wait to hold his book in my hands. I couldn’t wait to dive inside and indulge in his poetry. I had read his poetry before and knew that he would not disappoint and he did not. His book is amazing!!!
I am amazed by his talent. Not only does he affect us with his words but he also leaves us thinking. We are left with a lasting impression after reading his poetry and we are left wanting more. He is the king of metaphor and allegory. Besides that, he is able to tackle any poetic form and nail it from start to finish. And it looks so effortless. He doesn’t overwhelm us with emotion. He has just enough of it to make us feel and bring forth our own emotions to the poetry we are reading.
Wandering Wounds is James L. Finley's first poetry book. I hope it is the first of many books that he will release. A talent like that deserves to be in print and deserves to be heard around the world.
I sure hope that there will be more books published by James L. Finley as his words are very effective and they leave us thinking. His poetry is not fluff. It’s got depth, it’s got meaning, it’s got soul – everything great poetry should have.
