Poetic Perspectives brings to parchment two decades of this author’s finest poetry. Deemed the Thomas Kinkade of poetry, Wolfe pens to paper words, thoughts, ponderings, history, personal experiences, patriotism, love, and loss. He clearly expresses delight in his rhyming verse and subject matter. You will experience his artistic vision and be amazed at the brushstrokes provided by his mental mastery of life’s precious moments. He will capture you and hold you in his grasp, bringing forth a tear, a smile, a deeper thought, and an awakening to some of the more important things in life. This book is the perfect gift for any man or woman. Experience the themes of romance, adventure, love, the human spirit, and the richer meaning of life. Immerse yourself in this work inspired by a higher power, and know that your soul will be touched in a way no other book has accomplished. Wolfe will touch you in a special way with his mastery of penmanship from conception to death and a myriad of life experiences you will experience along your way.

Jerrel Wolfe’s poetry collection, Reflections, is aptly titled. It’s not so much poems as short stories, each self-contained and neatly packaged into tidy stanzas. His subjects include all basic elements of an ordinary life: falling in love, losing in love, spending time with family, and celebrating Fourth of July. Any reader who picks up Wolfe’s collection will find at least one poem that reaches into their memories and touches their heart. Wolfe has wonderful consistency of tone throughout his collection. After reading his first poem, readers pretty much know what to expect from the rest. “The Heart Is on The Table” is a cheerful example of Wolfe’s writing. Reflections makes even the saddest stories feel manageable. Often, Wolfe’s tone of voice when relating a tragedy or loss is one of acceptance. The poems “Taken” and “Consumed by Social Pressure” are good examples of this. Both poems relate the loss of a child, in different ways.
