Title: Words and Feelings
Authors: Billy Whisenant
Reviewer: W. H. McDonald, Jr. – AAA Founder
Book Has A lifetime of Recorded Poetry
Poet and writer Billy Whisenant takes poetry that represents 26 years of his life and shares them in a neat little poetry book called “Words and Feelings.” His thoughts and reflections are a rainbow of different observations and emotions. His visions of the world and life are painted by his emotional connection at that moment and place in time and we can see that his words have roamed all over the inside of his heart and soul.
This book is filled with touching little poems and prose that says a lot in a few words. Billy offers us all a little view inside himself; really exposing himself emotionally to judgment and making him vulnerable to the rough and tumble world of critics and non-poetry loving citizens of the world.
Light reading but heavy with after thoughts as you digest what you just read. Poetry includes all kinds of subjects and situations about life in general. Recommend for almost all age groups including teenagers. If you enjoy poetry this is a great book for you.

I'm still alive, well, and sober somewhere in Vietnam.
Sorry I haven't written sooner, but I've spent the last week trying to pass time and make it go faster. My efforts were met by an old man with a white, quite long beard who said "Son Don't Rush Me "Here I Sit in Reality writing, thinking of the future.
Forever is almost over, and I've become inpatient.
I'm coming back to the world, I'll see you soon.
Anne, Bryant, Steve, and Brad,
I miss you all very much, and "forever is almost over."
