This brief collection of poetry is an exploration of words and meaning, and a celebration of sounds. Despite the size of this collection it covers a wide variety of poetry from nature, to love poems. It's shows generosity of Spirit as well as passion, living an life.
I give Particles of Light five out of five stars! Happy Reading!

This collection flows very well, and despite the length of it, there is a great amount of content that covers a vast range of topics.
Some of the poems/one-liners really worked well as comedic devices, and I honestly found myself laughing out loud in some places
The poetry was extremely well-written and I found that each individual poem contributed well to the overall feeling of the collection. I liked that each poem had its own title.

Chris Burleigh's poetry is beautiful and haunting. In 'Particles of Light', each poem is a vivid story weaved into a small space. Every reader will find something to love in this book of poetry.

Beautiful imagery, really nice poems. It's shorter than I realized, but that's not a bad thing. I like the author's writing style as well-- he invokes feeling but doesn't sound too self-indulgent. I think since a lot of these poems are so short, they would be nicely complimented by high-quality paper with some gorgeous original background art!

Definitely one of the most "interesting" poetry collections I've read. Written so differently than anything I've ever seen. The word play was fun and I had to stop and think about most of these, which I find neat.
