Review: Poetry Doodles by Wayne Davids
I met Wayne back in June 2019 when he joined The Pantheon (InThePantheon.com) to voice the god of hate and jealousy, Dinlas. Since then, he’s managed to write enough for that project to probably fill 2 or 3 books on their own and yet he has somehow managed to publish a book of poetry at the same time.
Over the last months, we (at the Pantheon) have been blessed to have him as a part of our (mostly) daily life. He has a very sharp but sarcastic sense of humor and a very creative mind. Anytime we’ve needed something written up, whether it’s a creative piece or some administration documentation he goes out of his way to anticipate any needs we may have. It got to the point that I worried we were draining him creatively.
So, when he told me that he was publishing a book of poetry, I was so happy for him and proud that he was going to finally publish something on his own. To say I was anxiously anticipating the arrival of this book would minimize my excitement. The book itself is full of short poems and is definitely a quick read but you will feel something for each one. It is for this reason I gave his book 5 stars.
My Amazon Review
I am a fan of the quick poems Wayne writes but don’t be deceived, though they are quick to read they are full of meaning. Several of them touched my soul but I am quite fond of his limericks and haikus. They left me smiling for hours after. This is one of the few poetry books I will read again and again.
