“The Ramblings of a Poetic Fool” is Rick Stephen’s first collection of poems, poems drawn not only from the life of the author but of the reader’s as well. Exploring themes common to the human experience, these poems leave the reader with an experience not easily forgotten since many times they hit close to home.
Rick Stephen invites us to look into the mirror and examine our deepest feelings of desire, love and loss, ecstasy and pain, hope, disappointment and desperation.
Honest, frank and often cathartic these poems bring the depth of the human condition to the surface. His unique style manages to capture what is often so difficult to express. It seems he writes about us and to us, transforming our life into a permanent memento of words or as the author calls them, “ramblings”. Beautiful, captivating and intriguing – as only a Poetic Fool can pen.
