This "new age" book of poetry refl ects the diverse views and philosophies of it's author Ra Krishna EL. It's an intimate, humorous and thought provoking group of poems intended to evoke strong emotion. To quote the German philosopher, Friedrich Nietzsche, this style of poetry can be called "Zukunfts poesie" which translates into "Poetry of the future," where truly original ideas are presented thru poetry. Also known as post Nietzschean poetry. It's subjects include society, pop culture, love, religious dogma, God and the new age of Aquarius. This book was written and published during the false incarceration of its author in Chicago's notorious Cook County Jail, the largest jail in the country.
Lucifer and the indigo kids is a collection of poems ensued from poet's experiences. Readers can feel the helplessness, despair and pain of a person who was subjected to discrimination and prejudice. We can feel love, pain, despair, optimism,music, and passion. Poet's love for Bob Marley and John Lennon is evident in the book. Every poem is preceded with a picture illustration.
The most attractive part of is the poems on the attributes of different colors. They left me wondering why I could not write them
The poems are not written within the meter or did not possess poetic musings but there is something quite appealing in the poems.
Reviewed for the publisherDisclosure of Material Connection: I received this book as a complimentary copy in exchange for a honest review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
