Author Roy Lee Simon Jarmons collection of poems conveys his profound outlook on life.

Piscataway, N.J. (PRWEB) June 24, 2014

The ability to convey ones thoughts and perceptions in life through poetry requires a sensitive soul and a love for the written word two qualities that author Roy Lee Simon Jarmon exhibits in Poetry by Simon.

Poetry by Simon is a collection of poems, prose and other creative pieces. It shows how the author has always loved words. He has always been fascinated with the English language and how each word can be utilized in various ways depending on its context. Being somewhat of a loner at times, he found solace in turning to the pen and putting his thoughts and feelings on paper. Here is a small slice of some of his collected slices of lifes excursions. His hope is that these slices will create conversations, thus leading to understanding and, thereby, an appreciation of the other persons point of view.

This collection of poetry shows readers a sensitive soul with a profound love for the written word and a keen eye on the many aspects of life. This engrossing compilation of poems is a must read for poetry lovers.
