Return to the Book of Woo, Romantic Poetry by Thomas D. Jones
Capturing emotion through poetry.
By OLIVIA RASUL
Are you looking for ways to bring more romance into your relationship? No
matter what mood you're in, it’s always a delightful surprise to find
a hidden love poem somewhere.
On display through Dec. 31 at Borders Books & Music on The Strip in North Canton is the romantic poetry of Thomas D. Jones.
Jones, a native of Greentown, has released a limited number of prints featuring his poetry and photography from "The Book of Woo," a collection of 50 poems and love letters. The poet anticipates "The Book of Woo," will be completed and released in the next two years.
Jones, 40, explained his poems give loving advice for people who do not know how to express their feelings.
"Nowadays romance is gone and I hope the poems will put a light bulb over the heads of readers" he said. "I hope guys will understand it’s nice to spend your time romancing a lady than watching a football garner
Jones said the poems are written to stimulate feelings.
“I try to capture an emotion through the poetry,” he said.
Reader Kelli Gorsuch of North Canton agreed and said the poems represent deep emotions.
"The poems make me want to express myself Gorsuch said.
Included in his poetry are stylized photographs that enhance his written word. Several of his pictures portray women’s eyes.
"Eyes express the inner sentiments of a person," said Jones.
Writing as a hobby, he began composing while attending Hoover High School. He began with short rhymes and then moved on to extensive poems. Jones said his powerful inspiration is his profound love for romance.
The next time you want to show your loving side, think about leaving a romantic poem someplace special and unexpected.
