This is an image of one of the interior pages of Become Your Masterpiece that showcases one of the very special poems in the book.

This book is designed and present-ed as a coffee table book. It is not intended to be stuffed away on the top shelf of some bookcase after you have read it. Front and center  is an ideal location where it can serve as a conversation piece for family, friends and guests.

You may also want to keep it within easy reach for those moments when you succumb to the urge to revisit that one piece that touched you in a special way and demands reread-ing to get an even deeper under-standing of the many layers of discovery it evokes.

Become Your Masterpiece: A Poetic Symphony of Wisdom, Guidance, Tools and Techniques for Transforming Your Life by Carlton J. Buller is a compilation of the author's poems, stories, and curated imagery. Buller's collection has a wide range of content that varies by length, tone, and tenor. This moves from the poem Choices, using a reflective, conversational style exploring alternate life paths, and contemplating how different choices shape circumstances and challenges, suggesting they serve the purpose of fulfilling one's existence in the universe, to a graph of the IEAR formula—Intentions + Expectations + Actions = Results—in colorful bubbles. From there one moves on to the autumnal photography of a tree, altered to reflect itself upside down, that accompanies the poem Duality, which expresses how the power of imagination and inner wisdom shape one's reality and lay the groundwork for future success and creativity.

There is so much to appreciate about Become Your Masterpiece by Carlton J. Buller, and every single poem and piece of artwork contributes to the work as a whole. Buller offers reflection and the provoking of thought, embodying it in poems like Meaning and Purpose, while also nourishing the soul with an authentic philosophical depth and mindfulness like in The Present, which also encourages seizing the moment. Empowerment streams throughout the book as a whole, but is no more apparent than in the poem Streaming. Buller refrains from stereotypical, linear poetic storytelling by offering twists that are delightfully unexpected. Blessings with its message of giving and receiving takes a unique turn. I loved that each piece was accompanied by imagery. Overall, this lovely coffee table book allows readers to enjoy it themselves and let it rest for others to pick up and share as well. Very highly recommended.
