My Review:

That was utterly breathtaking; I need more of Atticus now! Divided into three sections; Love, Her and Wild – these poems really impacted me and made me appreciate not only the simple things, but even more, me as a being – and I love the sense of adventure that was container inside these poems. These words speak to my soul, and honestly I think I can see why Atticus is a sensation! every poem had love rooted deep inside its core; and within the words, I felt so much emotion! And accompanied by the gorgeous, yet simplistic images; this made for an utterly inspiring read! 
Excerpts from “Love”
“I just need

You

And

Some

Sunsets.”

—————–

“Watch carefully

The magic that occurs

When you give a person

Enough comfort 

To just be themselves.”

————

“Words 

Will 

Scratch 

More 

Hearts

Than 

Swords.”

———–

Excerpts from “Her”

“She was the wild thing I loved.

My dark between the stars.”

———–

“Her soul dwelled in the wild parts

Of her heart

Vibrating 

To the music 

It found there.”

——————

“She want waiting for a knight

She was waiting for a sword.”

————–

“Excerpts from Wild”

“Go forth and conquer 

For all the world is small 

And you are a giant

And every step

You take

Will make the ground shake

As it rises

To meet you.”

—————–

“Art takes time —

Monet grew his gardens

Before he painted them.”

———

“Let my death be a long and magnificent life.”

——-

How amazing are these excerpts? I definitley felt teary when I was reading them, but uplifted at the same time – I couldn’t get enough of these and Atticus has definitley got me longing for more. 

Until next time, happy reading💕
