Having written numerous works of nonfiction, this is Lee Hudspeth’s debut book of poetry. Incandescent Visions explores the meaning of the human experience, as the author encourages his readers to ponder the universe and their place within it, and to catalyze their own creative potential. From the sublime shores of the Mediterranean to the majestic expansiveness of deep space, this book contemplates nostalgia, perspective and the gift of love. Through five short yet powerful, thought-provoking chapters of contemporary poems—and a dash of elegant, evocative haiku—Hudspeth takes his readers on a journey across the inner landscape of struggle, triumph, self-realization and imagination.

My Review:

I have to admit that I do not normally take the time to read books of poetry. After reading Incandescent Visions by Lee Hudspeth, that will soon change. I thought it was a great collection of poetry. 

Incandescent Visions is only a little over fifty pages long. There are only five chapters. The first four have four to six poems each, while the fifth chapter has twelve haikus and three not haikus. I liked how the author took the time to accompany commentary for each chapter. I appreciated the clear explanations. I found that each poem was different with its own special and unique style. There were some that invoked some emotions out of me, while others that took me on an adventurous journey. I was at times smiling at what I was reading and searching for my tissues at others. My favorite chapter was number 2. It is titled Reflections. I thought the memorials written for the author’s mother and friend were touching and beautifully written. I found all of them to be easy to read and understand. 

I am giving Incandescent Visions four and a half stars. Thank you, Mr Hudspeth, for reminding why I loved poetry many years ago when I was a teen. I will look forward to reading more of his work in the near future. I would love to see where else his imagination and visions will appear between the pages. 

I received this book from the publisher. This review is 100% my own honest opinion.
