Much love to the most magnificent Marion.

Also this lovely moonflower.

I don't think anyone's ever left a book a better review.

Unmasking the night from gloaming to dawn, Ben Ditmars' "Night Poems" shimmer and shine like sky diamonds in the black velvety heavens. From silvery moonlight references to a magical firefly's elusive glimmer, each and every poem illuminates the mind's dark corners and startle in their beauty and lucidity.

I thoroughly enjoyed each of the 29 short poems, titled with a time. One of my favorite poems is "02:20:

"a night so dead
the lights are off
playing footsie with the moon somewhere
beneath the clouds.

dim paths will unwind themselves as
street signs stretch and yawn."

If you like heartfelt, sincere, vibrant poetry, then you'll love these gems by Mr. Ditmars. I highly recommend "Night Poems". I can't wait to read more of his awesome poetry.


  1. Awwww, thank you for the gorgeous Moonflower, Ben. I mean every single word of that review. Your poetry is awesomely awesome. xoxo

    PS: Great music by Christina Perri, too!

    1. Christina has such amazingly powerful music. She's able to take the simplest concepts and make them into something unforgettable i.e. a thousand years, jar of hearts.

  2. WoW! What an *awesome* review from an awesome friend :-) I'll look forward to purchasing your book when it comes out on paperback ~ my congratulations and best wishes to you again, Ben! So happy for you!

    1. Oh, she is awesome all right :-)

      In fact, you can actually get it in paperback starting today, through Createspace. Amazon will take a few days to get it up though.


You've found your way inside my head and now there's no way out!
