Real Life Poem Collections by Todd Pagano, is a book of poetry that, at times, reads like a very short story. They are poems that deal with real life issues, spirituality, humor and everyday situations. From poems to our President, to our soldiers and the American Flag, to Christianity, there are sure to be a few poems in this small book that will become a favorite. A few favorites of mine were "A Mother's Love," "This House," and "The Love Of Your Life." With just 47 pages in the book, there are also several blank pages in the back for taking notes, expressing thoughts, or perhaps writing one's own poetry.
The book contains 76 poems, but they are short. I enjoy reading poetry; and I have learned over the years, it is best to read poems slowly to get the full impact of what the poet is communicating. I found the lack of punctuation marks had me mentally inserting them as I read. With that thought in mind, I consider these to be more prose than poetry. Whether one considers them poetry, prose, or very short story-type poems, I feel the reader will enjoy the book.
