Love Poems by Dr. Tony Beizaee is a collection of twenty-five powerful poems expressing romantic and spiritual love interspersed with beautiful abstract art in vivid colours. The poems vary in length from a few short ones to some that are very long. Together, they cause the reader to reevaluate his or her conception of love in all its forms – the lover – the mother – the child – acceptance of self, and love for and from an omnificent God. “The Temple of the Heart”, one of the longest poems, contrives to address all of those loves and more. Delve deep and Dr. Tony Beizaee’s Jewish beliefs are clear, and never more so than in “Jerusalem” and the final words of the last poem – "As love is God, as God is love, as the ultimate poetry is love”.
“My hunger has become a fain of fasting” is an evocative line from the poem My Love, the first of Dr. Tony Beizaee’s offerings in Love Poems, and it drew me into a fascinating collection of an unusual version of freestyle poetry that makes use of capitalized words to create an extraordinary emphasis. In many, capitals are used extensively, yet in “Mother” only for forms of “love”, which gives a feeling of quiet tenderness remembered. “The Blanket of Love”, dedicated to Holocaust victims, is the most unusual poem of understanding and remembrance I have ever read, the sheer horror half-hidden but inescapably present. “The Sunrise of Love”, truly romantic, is encapsulated in its short final lines, “and giving love is the ring of the wedding”. Clever and thought-provoking, Love Poems is a poetry book to treasure.
