Flowers That Die

The Flowers That Die by Gideon Halpin is a must-read for any poetry lover. This profoundly thoughtful poetry collection mixes the modern Instagram style and a classic verse feel. Halpin discusses life and love in this collection through their keen use of the English language. They will take readers on a memorable ride of emotions. Each of the expressive poems will fascinate readers with the feelings and imagery that Halpin has written.

Like many poetry collections, this one has a variety of styles and subjects that will appeal to a wide range of readers. The varied topics will give everyone something to latch onto and contemplate. I enjoyed the poem Eyes of a Grandmother the most, while Tall Drink of Water might appeal to other readers more. Halpin did tend to use similar phrases in multiple poems; it can come across as repetitive or could be intentional to link the seemingly unrelated poems to each other. This caused several poems to blend together, extending the experience.

What readers will love most about this imaginative collection of poems is Halpin’s vivid imagery through writing. The author’s descriptive writing creates beautiful visuals that readers can imagine themselves in. The ability to take a reader out of the present and into the world you have written is a great skill that Halpin excels at. In addition, the lyrical style lets readers experience the world they have created. Even the poems that, on the surface, lacked direction produced vibrant imagery that everyone could see. Halpin truly knows how to bring their thoughts to life.

The Flowers That Die is an exceptional and memorable collection of poetry that readers will be able to dive into and take a journey through the words of Halpin. It’s the perfect book to settle in with on a warm afternoon.
