McColley is an artist who paints rare and exceptional portraits with his quill, and the content of his verses is highly relatable. While I enjoyed the entire collection, my favourite poems, due to either content or his words’ visual images, were Still Waters “avoiding conflict daily finding peace within our hell, life is like an open ocean screaming from a shell”, The Joy of Sadness “sadness my dearest friend in solitude, a dear one of caring when I’m not in the mood, always to show me and never is rude, sweet song in life my darling brief interlude”, and Watercolor “I let the colors blur over the page, they drip off to the edges blending and bleeding, the brush moves water like filling the crevices.” I highly recommend this collection and am anxious for McColley’s forthcoming title.
