Seeking Solace by Callum McLaughlin
Callum’s Seeking Solace is a lovely, lyrical book, filled with musical language that lifts the heart and opens the eye. Many of you know I adore poetry, going all the way back to my childhood, so I’m always happy when I have a chance to read a new collection. This one was especially moving. My favorites include Light Bringer, Rise, Will You, and Annual. I lean toward the uplifting aspects of these, though there is a lot to be said for the impact of some of the darker themes in other poems. Overall, this is a wonderful collection that I’ll be reading again and again, I’m sure. And I’m looking forward to more from Callum, who puts his soul out there for all to see.
