Lightning Bolts and Dew Drops: A Cauldron of Poesy draws upon a broad range of poetic themes and flavours that bubble and blast through this work. Inspirational sparks meld with sentimental splashes as the gamut of human experience is played with to the full. John-Paul works with wit and pulls no punches in honesty, whether from heart-felt personal exposure, to biting political and social commentary. Yet each poem seems imbued with a spiritual essence, a quality of enlightenment that is intoxicating. The author's signature technique of alliterative verse, taps into the earliest period of the Irish poetic tradition. Flowering from the work of the Filid (poetic seers) and creating a rich phonetic tapestry that sings from the page. John-Paul Patton is truly a poet for our time. He draws on the ancient heritage of Ireland, while expressing its contemporary zeitgeist, through Imbas Forosnai (Illuminated Inspiration).
