“Verses from My Heart” by MPH Published Author Robert Celles is Now Available on Amazon

“Verses From My Heart” is not only a joy to read but also a journey over the years about the author’s life as depicted on various themes mostly about his life’s struggles and experiences. The many artworks and photos were purposely used to complement each poetry. Each chapter has its own story to tell, bringing the reader into a more personal connection with the poet’s character.

Reading this poetry book will give you some realization about different aspects of life including people, emotions, surroundings, and more. It will provide you with a different view of LOVE and LIFE.  Our past MEMORIES give us the opportunity to learn from our previous mistakes and allow us to understand the reasons why people behave the way they do. This book also tackled the interdependence of all things in NATURE and you can learn more from their existence. Also, the readers can relate to the four seasons of life, based on their metaphorical experiences of WINTER, SPRING, SUMMER, and FALL.

Verses from My Heart will indeed impart profound things in a simple, low- key and down-to-earth manner.
