Poetry eBook Review – Where the Fenceline Runs by Dave Barber

Posted: 28 Dec 2008 11:27 AM CST

Not normally a reader of poetry, I was pleasantly surprised when I read David Barber’s latest eBook. The book is titled Where the Fenceline Runs, and includes a good number of poems by my now favorite poet.

The simple reality is that good poetry is rare. Sure you can find lots of decent poems related to love, loss, etc, but poetry related to all topics in life (that actually makes you stop and think) is hard to find.

In the eBook Where the Fenceline runs, good poetry is exactly what you’ll find. Dave doesn’t follow one style, or cover one topic, rather this collection of poems deals with many aspects of life, and almost all of them will move you and/or make you think. Poems like For some reason, Horizons, Kingdoms, and Keepers truly convey feeling, and they really make you stop and consider.

For anyone who enjoys a good poem, I am highly recommending this eBook. The book contains close to 100 poems, and at $6.39 for the Kindle book, it is a great investment in excellent reading material. The book is also available in paperback, and I have included links to both at the bottom of this review.

An Excerpt from Where the Fenceline Runs:

How Many Surfaces?

Now the drop has become one,

World’s larger –

Reflecting the surface only

A greater freedom in the new

Union or just the same.

Reflections are backwards

My face in the drop Is upside down

Distorted and stretched

Into a new place

Self sees the day

Ended in evaporation

Surface is gone – for now

Dried into the next time

I’m wondering about the next time.

As I approach 10,000 hits in only 3 months,  I am humbled and I feel very blessed.  Thanks so much!  I appreciate all the comments, reviews and criticisms!  I honestly do.  Please feel free to comment on this!  I’d love to hear your thoughts.   What would you llike to see in 2009 that you haven’t seen?   Have you checked out my book?  What do you think?

Just a quick comment.  Yesterday,  my daughter and I went to the hardware store to select paint for her room.  She picked a very light sky blue.   If you’ve read my poetry, you know I wrote a poem based on a dream called “Painting her Room.”  The basis of this poem was my daughter going away to college and I was repainting.   In the verse, we painted her room with this very color but not wanting to paint because I didn’t want her to grow. Or perhaps it was more, I didn’t want her to grow up.  But she has grown to a beautiful young adult.  A caring adult.   This month, she’ll register with UNM for her freshman year.  So, I ask,  does poetry reflect life or life reflect poetry?   What do you think?
