A Review of Whiskey Words and a Shovel I by r.h. Sin

My Review:

Simple yet deep.

r.h. Sin writes poetry that touches the reader's soul, makes a connection.

Many people hate poetry. They think it is a bunch of fancy words that require a cypher to decode the meaning. Full of metaphors, similes, and metered verse they just don't appeal to the average person.

Then you get the haters that think poetry has to be stuffy and appear in some obscure literary journal to have merit.

So when it comes to poetry you get the people that avoid poetry in general, people that avoid anything "non-literary", and people like me who appreciate the words whether they are fancy verse or free flowing thoughts. 

Sin's poems appeal to poetry lovers like me who enjoy the words and meaning and he is appealing to hybrid fans- those who never really cared for poetry but find meaning in his words.

Sin connects with the average person because his poetry can be deep, profound...yet the words are simple and easy to understand. 

Stark, blunt, they reach out and grab you.

Things we all feel, put into words we can all understand.

Simple. Exquisite.

Lines that go stright to the heart with no wasted words.

Whiskey Words and a Shovel I
by r.h. Sin

Completely revised and expanded brand-new edition of Volume I, the first book in the Whiskey poetry trilogy!

Whiskey, Words, and a Shovel, Vol. 1, is about reclaiming your power on the path to a healthy relationship. It is a testament to choosing to love yourself, even if it means heartbreak.

Originally released in 2015, this re-rerelease packs the same punch as the first version, but makes an even greater connection with the soul of the reader. Each piece has been re-seen and revamped to reflect the author’s continuing journey with his partner, Samantha King, without whom this book would not exist. Samantha is the muse, the “she” the writer speaks of; she is every woman who has felt like she wasn’t good enough, and every woman who struggles to find love.
