“These poems and songs are about life and mostly true. I feel readers may be able to relate,”

At the heart of poetry is just that, the heart. Within the pages of Clarence ‘Sonny’ White’s new book, Reflections in Time ($10.99, paperback, 978-1-61904-497-5; $5.49, eBook, 978-1-61904-902-4), readers will find emotion and heart at the core of every poem. The importance of God, family, friends and the military are the main themes woven throughout the poet’s rhythmic lines with the intent to promote harmony and to reflect positively on what it means to be a Christian. The author expresses his love for God, his family and his respect for the military, which will in turn inspire readers to find a deeper love and respect for each within themselves as well.

“These poems and songs are about life and mostly true. I feel readers may be able to relate,” White expresses. “I want to let them know others have experienced similar problems and offer encouragement. I would hope to make them feel good about themselves. The humorous poems will hopefully produce a chuckle or smile as well. Most importantly, I want to project the importance of God; that’s why these poems are written from the heart and express true emotion.

Clarence ‘Sonny’ White was born in Covington, Tennessee. He has been writing songs and poems most of his life. He grew up listening to his mother sing while doing the house work and listening to the Grand Old Opry on an old battery powered family radio most every Sunday night. He contributes his passion for writing to both his mother’s singing and the time he spent listening to the radio. At the age of twelve, the author’s first poem was published in The Covington Leader, which was a newspaper in his hometown. Since then, several of his poems have been included on videos by friends Steve Politte and Chee Chee Martin.
