by John Everett Button

Book Image Not Available
If the heart could speak, what would it say? A scribe of the human heart, American Poet John Everett Button answers with Romantic Riddles: a two part collection of poetry about the questions, puzzles, and uncertainties that accompany each kiss, intimate encounter, and relationship we experience in our lives. Through both lyric and parable, Button has produced a rare and novel collection of poems that puts a human face on our heart’s greatest puzzle – Love. Love is life’s riddle.
Romantic Riddles is a collection of poems that examines the essence of love and the questions, puzzles, and uncertainties that accompany each kiss, intimate encounter, and relationship we experience in our lives. Each poem is infused with some aspect of the heart’s greatest puzzle: Love. American Poet John Everett Button asks, "if the heart could speak, what would it say?" However, in asking that very question, an entire world overcame him. Scenes of unfathomable circumstances consumed him. Everything he experienced became the Romantic Riddles collection. Romantic Riddles is divided into two parts: “The Love Dialectic,” which describes the movement of love between two people and “Riddles of the Heart,” which are poetic parables about love itself. “The Love Dialectic,” describes and demonstrates the natural movement of love between two people through short vivid poems. Insofar as part I is a poetic description of the movement of love itself, part II is a clear but frightening abstraction of this concept. The poetic parables of Part II challenge the reader’s expectations and force a deeper reflection of their own heart.
