Author Lawrence Johns has travelled throughout his life, studying religions. After all his discussions and journeys, he has come to a personal conclusion, that spiritually speaking the worlds people cannot see, are infinitely greater than those they imagine they can see.

“All have an effect on our daily lives often unbeknown to ourselves,” says Johns. This is what partially inspired his anthology of poetry, Mystic Dreams. Covering a gamut of themes, this book is filled with emotion that flows through its verses. In this collection, the author lets readers celebrate “Spring Equinox” and allows them to witness “Nature at Play”. Other evocative poetic pieces as they immerse in this memorable compilation.

Filled with insight, Mystic Dreams is often whimsical and symbolic, painting verbal images that linger in the mind. Johns makes use of rhyme in his poetic narratives, creating lilting verses filled with color and depth. This book will make an excellent addition to anyone’s personal library or a great gift for friends who appreciate good poetry.
