Mark Stonesifer Brings Poetic Justice to New Heights in His Book of Poems

His poetry collection titled Siege of the Saguaro contains beautifully written poems that speak about his struggles in life as a disabled military veteran.


The colorful words in a poem reflects the colorful life of the poet.

Mark Stonesifer comes up with a great collection of poems in his book, “Siege of the Saguaro.” The book reflects the struggles of a disabled military veteran, broken down into several poetic lines. It also reflects Stonesifer’s mastery of the art of poetry, a feat only a handful of men could achieve. Through the poems in this book, readers will get to know the author more closely.

The poems in “Siege of the Saguaro” are inspired by the author’s life and views. He chose the saguaro, a giant desert cactus as a symbolism and an analogy of the struggles he experienced in life. The saguaro is a sturdy and hardy desert plant which can survive the extreme desert temperatures. Readers may find a connection of the attributes of the saguaro with the life struggles of Mark through the poems. Also, the saguaro is a representation of the author’s place, the Sonora desert in Tucson, Arizona. The place where one considers his current home is where his heart is. Thus, the image of the book and the contents inside have so much to say about the remarkable man.

Poems give authors great freedom to express their emotions, thoughts, and beliefs, and poetry is the perfect medium for Mark to release his suppressed emotions. There are a variety of themes that readers can find in the poems. They range from personal and emotional to political themes that Mark courageously touches upon.

Like the hardy desert cactus, Mark chooses to take on the challenges he faces in life and stands firm in his beliefs and principles. The words and rhymes can do justice to one’s life, when done properly.

“Siege of the Saguaro” is a good read for those who seek inspiration and motivation from people who overcame personal obstacles.  Every poetry lover should get a copy of this book in the upcoming 2019 BookExpo America which will be happening on  May 29, 2019 to May 31, 2019.
