Night Poems - Ben Ditmars Just a preface: I’m a poet…but I’m new to reviewing poetry. Though, that doesn’t diminish the honest review or opinions about the piece. I just am learning how to put it all in to words

The poems that make up the collection Night Poems from Ben Ditmars were enjoyable to read. I’m a fan of short poems, and they delivered well in that respect. Many were brief glimpses into the inner workings of the brain late at night. I’ve often found that my thoughts get deeper when I’m trying to sleep but can’t seem to. The subjects of the included poems are filled with questioning, longing, self inspection, and more. I feel that every poem is open to interpretation from a diverse readership, and poetry benefits from that. There is no one way to bring about a conclusion to any of them.

Ben Ditmars has created honest, insightful, and moving poems in enough of an abstract way to allow for many types of readers, while keeping them grounded enough to keep moving along on Night Poems‘ poetic journey.
