Former Medical Services Corps Officer Publishes Collection of Poetry

Poetry book deals with subjects that everyone could relate to.

Indianapolis, IN, USA – WEBWIRE

Poetry readers will appreciate the humor, irony and romance, the depth and nuance of each poem.

Anyone who loves poetry should get their hands on Larry McCarthy’s Firethorn Inn: A Book of Verse (Outskirts Press, 2016). This is a collection of poems that the author organizes in three sections: Natural World, Emotion and Relationships, and Silliness. “Natural World” extols the love of nature, “Emotion and Relationships” deals with all facets of human relationships, while “Silliness” is about humorous stories and experiences. 
Avid poetry lovers will not fail to notice that the author somewhat likens his poetry collection to an inn (or pub), a perfect place where diverse personalities converge, where diverse experiences add color to the peculiarities of life, where the atmosphere affirms the human spirit – where variety is the spice of life and every moment is a celebration of the randomness of life, of humor, and of beauty.
The poems are simple and clever; most poems are rhythmic, some are free verse. The poems are terse but transparent with form, emotion, and thought – playful and philosophical at the same time. Choice titles are “Truly Feline”, “Dissolution”, and “Two-Thirty”.
Firethorn Inn is more than inspiring and not only diverse. It’s rich, deep, thought-provoking, and yes, fun. The poetry collection deserves a place on every poetry lover’s bookshelf and a spot in poetry reading sessions.
