(Entertainment-NewsWire.com, November 23, 2021 ) “The world is a sea of poetry, yet with everyday demands for our attention and our survival, we are almost forced solely into the expedient,” Luthi explains. “With little room left for a faculty that requires us to slow down for it to function, imagination, reflection and wonder have to hitchhike to find their way to our deeper places. Like the old phonographs that played vinyl records, poems are running at 33 rpm, whereas the business of the everyday is running on 45 or 78 rpm, which runs the records a lot quicker, but the beauty and clarity of the music are missed.”
The poems contained in Water for the Rose are for finding an experience of delight in an image or the association of images that aren’t normally put together. There are many that offer a unique perspective that speaks to the reader in some way—maybe places that haven't been spoken to for a while.
In an early review, Marsha Floyd writes, “Water for the Rose is a collection of introspective poems that are better appreciated in the calm of the day and not the hustle and bustle of life. Don't read it on your way to work; read it at the end of the day with a nice beverage. The poems are thought-provoking, eclectic, and sensual…conversational, perfect for a book club.”
