A book of poems conveying the realism of Love, Life, Spirit, and Image.

Barnes &

The poems in A Touch of Reality mirror the title; it’s a glimpse of life.  An actual sketch encompassing a wide range of emotions and thoughts that grabs hold of the reader’s attention conveying the reflections of the heart (Love), spoken and unspoken experiences (Life), acknowledgement of a higher power (Spirit), and illustrations of special icons (Image).

                                                                                                       Specifically, reflections of the heart (Love) relate to intimate relationships, dreams or deep thoughts of romantic escapades, skepticisms over relationship woes and the most dreaded – the breakup.  Spoken and unspoken experiences (Life) comprise of troublesome ordeals when exposed to unfair treatment, loneliness, abuse, and death.  Acknowledging a higher power (Spirit) allow us to realize that we did not come into existence on our own but that a Spirit, a higher power, indeed created us.  Thus on a day to day basis, we battle – we fight and sometimes lose.  The poems in this section voice this portrait.  And lastly, illustration of special icons (Image) is a picture of a person who viewed with great esteem, like a mother or father.  Collectively, these poems speak to the realisms of life with a powerful thought provoking message.   


Be encouraged and follow your dreams despite the obstacles that may lie in your path – nothing in this world, if it is valuable, is acquired easily.

Reader Reviews for "A Touch of Reality"

Reviewed by Victoria Gross 9/5/2008
I am a Realist. And while searching at, I look for books of the same…and there it was, “A Touch of Reality.” In one sitting, I was overwhelmed with emotion while I read the words of an Author who has obviously embraced the “realities” of life’s journey and has produced poems that are empowering (Beautiful African-American Woman), controversial (Divided We Fall), intimately deep (The Indescribable), and spiritually inviting (Divine Treasure). While reading the poems, I found myself curious and expecting more from the writer; yet realizing that the author’s exposure was just enough to invoke my reaction. Each line provided a moment of pause and allowed for introspection – a moment of clarity. The book is well structured and an easy read – no ambiguity in this writer’s expression of thought. “Applause” “Applause” “Applause” to the author’s first published treasure!
