Here starts the journey

Every day for the past six years, Tyler Knott Gregson has written a simple haiku about love, and posted it online. These heartfelt poems have attracted a large and loyal following around the world. This highly anticipated follow-up to Chasers of the Light, presents Tyler’s favorites, some previously unpublished, accompanied by his signature photographs, which capture the rich texture of daily life.

This vibrant collection reveals the intimate reflections of one of poetry's most popular new voices -- honest, vulnerable, generous, and truly present in the gift that is each moment.

Tyler Knott Gregson's first book, Chasers of the Light, was a beautiful, thoughtful collection of poems and photographs that inspired and awed while communicating the intrinsic quality of love. Gregson's poems make you realize how throughly love and hope are weaved throughout our daily lives. You can find it in every touch, every glance, every word, if you're looking for it.

Gregson's second book, a collection of haikus on love titled All the Words Are Yours, has a very similar feel to his first. Some of the haikus feel intimate, like a shared moment between two people. Some of them are a little more motivational. I believe each reader will find a few that feel more poignant than the rest, a little more relevant in their own lives. But all of them are beautiful when you take a moment to read them. Whether that's a casual perusal, or if you sit down with the soul intent of studying Gregson's words.

Romantic and thought provoking, the poems, alongside the photographs, create a book worth reading. Personally, I liked his first book better, but if you like poetry or are a fan of Gregson's work, I recommend getting yourself a copy of All the Words Are Yours. If you haven't picked up a copy of Chasers of the Light yet, I encourage you to do so, as well as stopping by Tyler Knott Gregson's website for more of his beautiful words.
