Light Spectrums: A Collection of Poetry Review & Giveaway
Good evening everyone!
In high school English teachers sort of ruined poetry for me. It became a chore of looking very deep into a poem and finding hidden meanings that the author put in their work. When an author would write "The sun is warm" it really meant he was happy and life was going great.
Personally I think poetry is meant to be enjoyed and reflected upon not analyzed and broken down word by word.
Enjoyment and reflection were the two things that I got out of reading Light Spectrums: A Collection of Poetry by Jessica Fuqua! This poetry collection has 25 easy to read poems that are lovely and will make the reader pause and think. They are very beautifully written. There were a few that I read three or four times in a row because they were just wonderful to read!
The book is sectioned off by different poetry genres (Haiku, Sonnet, etc.). My favorites were the free-verse poems though. I think poetry is better when there aren't rules attached to it!
Jessica Fuqua is a stay at home mom- just like many of my readers! I think it is pretty cool that she was able to publish this awesome book while being busy at home.
I don't want to give away too much because I do think it is worth reading! It is a quick read and the hard copy would make a great coffee-table book!
Information from the author:
I have chosen to release 25 poems in a novel today in celebration of World Poetry Day (March 21st) and the Spring Equinox (March 20th). The novel, "Light Spectrums," falls under both themes, as many poems in this novel are spring and nature related. The poems in "Light Spectrums" uses at least half a dozen poetry forms including Haiku's, Tanka's, Triolet's, Shadorma's, Sonnets, and Acrostics. To mention a few titles: "If My Heart Were a Flower" (Reverse Haiku), "Fringe" (Haiku), "War and Phoenix" (Haiku), "Spring" (Triolet), "Purple Prisms" (Tanka), and "Escape From the Cities" (Shadorma).
