Book Review: Chasers of the Light by Tyler Knott Gregson
Author Tyler Knott Gregson bought a vintage Remington typewriter and began to knock out poems on scraps of paper, grocery receipts, and no editing. These poems illuminate grand gestures and small glimpses, poems that celebrate the beauty of a life spent chasing the light.
I really enjoyed reading the poems in this book - Chasers of the Light: Poems from the Typewriter Series. They are rich and yet simplistic, and totally heartfelt. After reading them, I sighed - just content in the feelings.
Here's one example by Tyler Knott Gregson (picture it in old typewriter print)

on your lips
I taste the sea
has always been
I truly recommend this book of poems, and have no doubt I'll be re-reading much of his work.
There are many I wish I'd written myself.
