It's a genre worth exploring again. The Dollhouse Mirror (Plum White Press) invites us to stop and wander over each page, and linger in that moment between dream and reality. Within that world, readers find many of the things they thought were only fantasy are more real than they imagined.
From the burning carnality of love to the mystical attraction of nature, this exquisite collection of poems leaves a lasting impression that will catch at you at the most unexpected moments. Being transported into a semi-dream world while reading the poetry, away from the distractions of everyday life, it becomes a place to let imagination flow.

Five-star reviews from Amazon readers:
Grady Harp: "With all of Frank Watson's life experiences he still manages to make us pause for a moment and appreciate living and loving - quiet times with a man of sensitive words and phrases.”
Basil Rouskas: "Frank Watson's The Dollhouse Mirror transported me…These poems are an ariose balance of how the specific (mostly visual) image weds the universality of the human conditions/themes…As the poems come and go, it is hard to know if we are dazed spectators or skaters ourselves 'in the flow.'"
