Recent release "Strawberry Moss: A Compilation of Poetry" from Newman Springs Publishing author John G. Willis is an engaging and creative collection of poetry that ranges in topics from environmentalism and politics to humor and satire.
Hixson, TN, June 3, 2022 (Newswire.com) - John G. Willis, author of © 1986, but unpublished, "Experience for Sale: Volumes 1 and 2," has completed his new book, "Strawberry Moss: A Compilation of Poetry": a compelling collection of poetry that takes readers through several different subjects.
Author John G. Willis discusses his work, writing, "I am generally optimistic throughout the compilation but 'not the commanding general.' I try to expose some of society's ills and also talk across the aisle to skeptics and what we used to call the silent majority. I recall a lyric originally written by Pete Seeger and inspired by the Bible called, 'Turn, Turn, Turn,' (i.e., 'a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing'). Despite rough times, there is no time like the present to 'keep on trucking,' as Robert Crumb says. (Thank God for Biden.)"
He continues, "Moreover, also in this submission are 'Graffito poems' and 'Penny Haiku poems' as abbreviated poems. Note: Penny Haiku is a phrase I have coined. I have written many Penny Haiku online. (See under my pen name, Steve Plonk, in the Studio 8 site, and the Literary Kicks site, under 'Action Poetry.' Many of my poems have a lyrical bent and comment on social/political change.) Many poems are experimental. I use humor and satire in other poems. 'Creative Evolution' is an example of one of these."
Published by Newman Springs Publishing, John G. Willis's meaningful collection of poetry invites readers to experience life from the unique perspective of the author.
Readers who wish to experience this original work can purchase "Strawberry Moss: A Compilation of Poetry" at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iBooks Store, Amazon, or Barnes and Noble.
