After reading these poems included in the poetry collection Rain Shadow by Nicholas Bradley we get convinced that the poet is quite attractive and original in its high imaginations and surprises. The poems are full of wonderful variety and exquisite melody. The words used by the poet gives an impression of emotional depth. These poems are devoid of any labored vocabulary. The poems are quite notable on account of sufficiently powerful truth of feeling expressed in spontaneous style.

These  poems as well as others in more visible form all lead us into the center of rapturous moments of life.  
she’ll be wearing that
and we both shall arrive
perhaps at a celebratory ball
where queens wear pumpkins
on their heads and flash our beauties
among the most famous stars
I’d want to see Amal Clooney
the rabbit laugh at Bugs Bunny
perhaps we’d at least pass each other
on our after-life journeys
turn into each other
