Five Star Readers’ Favorite Review “In Perpetuity”


Book Review


In Perpetuity by Mark Andrew Heathcote is a unique, inspirational poetry book about life in its fullness. The book takes you on a poetic journey, ranging in various topics and stemming from the essence of inspiration.

5star-shiny-hr-rajaThe first thing that stood out to me in this book is the formatting. Simply wonderful! The formatting made the reading so easy to follow. It was as if the author has his poems written on silk. I can’t pick out one particular poem that I enjoyed more than others because each one provides a measure of creation and inspiration. There are a few I thoroughly enjoyed. I read it aloud and the flow was effortless.


Blissful Beauty Personified

I thought I heard your heart beating
Like a hummingbird, tell me
My love was I wrong, listening
Was I wrong in melting like ghee?

For honey, your flower puts aside
For one just as, voracious as me.
Paradise can’t be quantified
Like flowers visited by a bee.

True love is an amber-locket:
That preserves its contents always
Like, love written in a sonnet
Your heart beats in pianofortes.

Trembles as newly lighted dew
How could anybody know I’d?
Fall so deep and so fast for you
Blissful beauty, personified.


I didn’t want to include any of the author’s writings in this review, but this one spoke volumes to me. This poetic expression encompasses compassion, emotion, honesty, humility, and desire. The book is filled with such work. It’s such a pleasure to read the writings of an obviously talented author with a gift for poetry. I would recommend this book to everyone who enjoys inspirational writings, stemming from the seed of poetry. An excellent, marvelous creation. Loved it! The author’s gift is seen throughout the book.
