Meet A Beautiful, Sensual Angel in this New Book of Poetry
Self-published author Richard Hawley’ s book of poetry, Twenty-One Visits to a Darkly Sun-Tanned Angel, is released by Dog Ear Publishing.
In Twenty-One Visits to a Darkly Sun-Tanned Angel, poet Richard Hawley paints a portrait of a sensual, wine-drinking cigarette-smoking, beautiful and clearly feminine angel. Each of these 21 poems reveals something new and exciting about her. As one critic writes, “Mr. Hawley focuses his penetrating eye on both the ordinary and the unusual. Like a necklace, the poems string together a series of unique gems to form a consequential whole.”
The poems in Twenty-One Visits to a Darkly Sun-Tanned Angel seek to capture the essence of this ethereal being that Hawley has conjured up at the seaside. In the beginning he describes her appearance and perfect clothing. As we get to know her better, we learn that angels cry easily, suddenly, and often. When he explores the nature of her profound sadness, the images brought forth are both graphic and terrifying.
Fans of original poetry will enjoy Richard Hawley’s work. The language and imagery in Twenty-One Visits to a Darkly Sun-Tanned Angel will stay with you long after you put the book down.
Hawley self-published his poetry with the help of Dog Ear Publishing. If you’d like to know more about self-publishing, visit the Dog Ear Website.
