About the Book

You won’t find poetry like this anywhere else, believe it, I’ve looked. Packard’s poetry rifles through several different styles of genre from the dreamy Shakespearean, to the Poe-like macabre. His poetry has been called, “Grisly and dark without being trite or cliché.” ~Tony Myles …has a real command for rhyming language. This collection of 33 poems has proven once and for all that poetry is back and alive and well in mid-America. The author hits on such subjects as the direction our society is heading, gratitude, love, death, apathy, the afterlife, dogs, domestic violence, hoarding, old age, and sin. If you are one that doesn’t care for poetry, you will have a new appreciation for it after reading “Meanderings of a Soul Drenched Mind.”
