- As with Edwin's first collection, the poems in Life Happens are deceptively simple. Read with patience and reflected upon afterwards, they reveal a depth and richness of the poet's engagement with life i.e. with people, and even creatures and other alive things. The best poems in the collection deal with human encounters.
