A Mind Full Of Poems
Nicholas Bingham, author
Nicholas wrote the poems in this book to satisfy his creative desire to use words, to form rhymes, and to tell stories. ‘A Mind Full Of Poems; In This Present Moment' is his first collection of poems, inspired by the beautiful moments in life which we often take for granted. A lot of the poems in this book are directly inspired by mindfulness. Being mindful we let go of struggle and simply allow things to be as they are. By doing this and experiencing life with a ‘beginners mind', we step out of autopilot and become more aware of the present moment. Nicholas' poems are wondrous, uplifting and humorous. There are some monumental poems detailing his visits to London and Manchester, and a very special moment in Amalfi Cathedral. The joys of cycling, discovering real ale, and taking an exhilarating dip in the sea at Whitby, are some of the magical things that Nicholas describes in stunning detail. The title of the book is a play on words. Literally meaning that his mind is full of poems, but also relating to the practice of bringing mindful awareness to the everyday activities of his life.
