Reviewed by K.C. Finn for Readers' Favorite

The Voice of My Mind is a collection of avantgarde poetry compiled over several years by author T. A. Fish. Encompassing more than seventy poems in total, this immersive collection deals with varied themes such as enlightenment and spiritual lessons, love, heartache and loss, and a general philosophical perspective on life. The poems are arranged so that themes flow coherently without a disjointed effect, taking readers on tides of highs and lows with moments of spiritual and mental reflection added in here and there. The poems are comprised of free verse, varying in scansion and rhyme scheme.

The thing I liked most about this collection of works by poet T. A. Fish is the metrical effect of the syllables when they are read aloud. The themes of enlightenment and the comforting aspect that many of the verses bring meshes well with the way that they roll off the tongue when read aloud, as if they could be used to enact some kind of meditation or be read on special occasions and in times of need. Occasional darker moments of musing on the afterlife are well arranged to accompany more spiritual considerations about the Christian faith, but also the possession of faith in general, making the collection appealing to all kinds of readers. One of my particular favorites was the simple but masterly Query, a true conversation starter and a well-worded piece. Overall, The Voice of My Mind is an accomplished collection of poems that do not disappoint.
