The Color of Love is a poetry book that celebrates God’s, unconditional love.
When I think of religious or inspirational poetry, I think of John Milton’s Paradise Regained or Dover Beach by Matthew Arnold. These works are filled with serenity and love. Raymond Quattlebaum’s 2018 poetry book The Color of Love reminds us of the same calm feeling. But the book is not just a mere celebration of faith or spirituality. Quattlebaum also talks about love, passion, and positivity. Let us take a closer look at one of the best poetry books featured on Publisher’s Weekly last 2018- The Color of Love by Raymond Quattlebaum.
The Color of Love
“Life is the essence of who we are! We must PUSH! Because in life you never know how far you can go until you PUSH! Life is a constant PUSH!!! We all must PUSH! Because movement is the essence of life. My book will inspire the reader to read more as you turn the pages inspired about what is coming next. My book talks about the chapters of life in its unique form. The coloration in life is Poetry In Motion. You will understand poetry from another point of view, the author. A lot of times in life it’s not what you read, it’s how good the book is you have read, where it takes you. How did it make you feel, did you get anything from it.” – Raymond Quattlebaum
