Poetry to Heal

Poetry to Heal by Rodney Lyttaker is a collection of Christian-based poems and a few evocative songs that will inspire and comfort readers. It’s a curated collection of pieces on love, faith, grief, and gratitude, which are recurring themes throughout the book. The poems are short, impactful, and largely revolve around the author’s faith. Lyttaker’s poems are deeply personal, and his deep love for family and friends. The reader also gains a glimpse into the poet’s life and his nostalgic reflections on becoming a rockstar as a teenager, the tragic loss of his parents, and the devastation of Covid-19.

The poems are short, untitled, and appear to flow from one to the next so that the entire book connects each piece smoothly. The author uses wording that expresses his emotions and state of mind in a compelling way as he contemplates his faith while reflecting on the people he loves. I especially enjoyed the comforting words and passages throughout the poems and songs. Lyttaker expresses the same devotion to his faith as he does towards his father and family, which is refreshing and enjoyable to read.

I found the short sentences and concise writing ideal for expressing the author’s thoughts and emotions. A significant amount of gratitude and appreciation for life is a nice break from heavy reading, as Lyttaker’s style evokes more emotion and connection than thought-provoking analysis.

Poetry to Heal by Rodney Lyttaker is an inspirational and emotionally charged collection of poetry and songs. This book is direct in its content and theme of love, acceptance, and letting go of loved ones. It’s a well-written collection of poems and songs, with simple, easy-to-visualize wording and metaphors, with many references to nature, faith, and perseverance. It’s an easy read that’s enjoyable, simple, and comforting.
