Heart Poems On Memories

January 7, 2020

I wrote Heart Poems On Memories to add a more reflective element to the Heart Poems series.

As humans, we have the opportunity to experience each block of twenty-four hours in unlimited ways. Once over, the days pass into the memory bank, waiting to be recalled and relived. These poems tap into this data depository.

Poetry, for me, is a means of expressing ideas and thoughts. Heart Poems On Memories was inspired by both.

In certain instances, the source is general whereas, on other occasions, specific events triggered the memories to unleashed the words. Understanding exact details, however, is not a prerequisite to, dare I suggest, enjoying these poems.

You may choose to use these heart poems as catalysts to reconnect with key events making up your journey to now.

Starting with the inquiry ‘Do You Remember When?’ and concluding with the encouragement to ‘Recall, Relive’, these poems cover a wide range of sentiments.

Accordingly, Heart Poems On Memories could be:

a) the starting point from which to reflect on your experiences;

b) the opportunity to explore your relationship with past events and the like.

Additionally, you may choose to use the material as motivation to continue living your potential, moment by moment.

In any case, I hope you find Heart Poems On Memories enjoyable. So, not wanting to take up any more time, let me wish you ‘Happy reading’!

Brian.

Heart Poems On The Home

April 23, 2019

“As the world is our home, global issues are by definition personal.”

In many ways, Heart Poems On The Home should have been the first in the series of Heart Poems. The place we call home has significance greater than any words are able to convey.

That said, with these poems I have attempted to express a variety of sentiments we might feel represents, in a certain sense, the richness of home in our heart.

I enjoyed the creative process involved in writing these poems and I hope you find pleasure in reading them.

As with any form of artistic input, the value of this offering is to be determined by those experiencing it. With this latest collection of heart poems – the other books in the series can be found at my Amazon Author Page – the universally understood idea of the home is given centre stage.

With Heart Poems On The Home, you get the opportunity to:

A) ponder an eclectic set of perspectives;

B) reflect on the general meaning of home;

C) examine your idea of home.

Additionally, but of no less importance, is the prospect of you enjoying these poems.

That is my wish and fingers crossed it comes true for you.

Kindest regards.

Brian.

Finding freedom in our daily activities

March 14, 2019

Minutes merge into hours
days melt into weeks,
months stake up neatly
and experiences accumulate
over years.
Worries withdraw their footprints,
as efforts
soar ever higher.
Nothing comes from nothing.
No words can explain it better.
We align ourselves to endeavours
and strive with all our heart.
Yes, it’s true,
there might be times
when worries tip the balance.
But, overall,
when the talking stops,
there is much to be said
for finding freedom
in our daily activities.

Seeing America. The NEW book

September 26, 2018

Seeing America ebook cover

Being kindly invited to collaborate with the new publishing venture Indies United Publishing House, I wanted to offer something novel to potential readers in the States and beyond.

As an Englishman living in Italy, it is common to hear many stereotypes about North America. National bias and a continental attitude towards our ‘Atlantic cousins’ cloud many a conversation.

Yet these things are only a tiny piece of the picture. The poems set out in Seeing America represent America as described, or at least experienced, by American friends, clients and social media contacts.

Each piece has been inspired with a specific person in mind, not that it is necessary to know who he or she is.

Ideally this collection of twenty-six poems, written in British English, provides food for thought as well as some pleasure along the way.

Seeing ourselves is never an easy exercise. Seeing ourselves as others see us is even harder.

This collection is, of course, a set of personal viewpoints. Reading these poems gives you an occasion to see America from afar, through the eyes of its inhabitants, filtered through my mind and heart.

The insights may mean something or nothing. Quite rightly the eventual interpretation is the personal responsibility of you, much appreciated reader.

In any case, I hope Seeing America becomes a catalyst for further reflection and input for you not only today but also tomorrow.

With that said, enjoy!

Brian.

Heart Poems On Work. The NEW book

July 10, 2018

book cover

Heart Poems On Work

“How we manage the flow of work in line with the time available is an indicator of our priorities.” Brian Groves.

Whether looking for it, doing it or reminiscing about it, work takes up a large part of the day for many people. Accordingly, it seems fitting to add to the Heart Poems series with this collection dedicated to working in a general sense.

This book is aimed at setting out ideas, perspectives, observations and even a few insights, all for the sake of providing entertainment, enjoyment and possibly even assistance as you go about being who you are, doing what you do and letting your potential shine, also whilst working.

With titles ranging from ‘What is work?’ to ‘Noting it down’, the concept of work and aspects of it are explored here. Ideally, the words set out will connect with you in some way, leading to a knowing smile or one of those ‘Oh yes’ moments.

In any event, with this book, you will get the opportunity to:

a) Read heartfelt words related to work;

and

b) Engage with work from a variety of perspectives.

I hope this book becomes a catalyst for further reflection on the question of work.

Though I am experienced in the field of professional and personal development, you are the expert on your life and work. Implementation of any changes will, of course, need to be undertaken by you, I cannot do it for you.

So, happy reading!

Brian.

Heart Poems On Time. The NEW book

June 12, 2018

Sands of time

Heart Poems On Time

“That time passes is a given. That we use it well is a choice.” Brian Groves.

With the Heart Poems series now well established and appreciating the extent to which time impacts on how we live each day, a collection of poems around this crucial theme is surely not out of place.

In a similar way to enthusiasm and energy, time available today may not be there for us tomorrow. It cannot be ‘stored up’ for another moment. We either make use of it now or lose it forever.

Nevertheless, it is easy to believe we have all the time in the world to reach our goals.

Accordingly, this book is aimed at helping you remember this is the moment for you to be you, live your potential and embrace life as it is, right here and right now.

With attention focused on the now, we are able to manage items previously having the power to distract us from our priorities. Moreover, fears about tomorrow and concerns hanging around from yesterday have little impact on us as we go about embracing today.

With this book, you will get the opportunity to:
a) Explore your perspective of today;
b) Ponder the extent you are living the moment;
c) Apply any new thinking in your life.

I hope this book becomes a catalyst for further reflection and input for you to manage not only today but also tomorrow.

Though I am experienced in the field of professional and personal development, you are the expert on your life. Implementation of any changes will, of course, need to be undertaken by you, I cannot do it for you.

With that said, enjoy!

Brian.
