Talking about the writing style of a poet is really a tough thing to do. Most of the poems in this book are written in the third person. One thing I liked most in James’ writing is that he loves to see his feelings through the lens of nature. The art of blending human emotions to nature is not everyone’s cup of tea. But the poet did it very beautifully using proper words. His way of assigning thoughts to words is so perfect that I couldn’t think of replacing a single word of the book.

Ghosts in the Reflection are poems that show the decline in morals and society. They are moving and emotional and sometimes anger is also shown. They are raw and yet there’s something beautiful about the way they are written. They are powerful and bring strong images throughout them. The poems capture a time, a story observed very well. This poetry isn’t dull or boring, this is contemporary and has a great rhythm. It is relevant for readers today. Poetry, I am well aware, can be so easily dismissed. This isn’t a book to be dismissed so easily. This poetry is accessible. There’s nothing complicated about it and it is easy to follow. The poetry may be relatable to some readers, some may feel empathy or sympathy towards certain poems as the voices appear to be believable. The world has been well-observed by Jim Miller and through these poems are his findings of the state of the world we live in today.
