There are things we encounter so often that we don’t really give them much thought. But then someone—or something—comes along, and we are made to look at these things with a new appreciation and understanding.
Poet Nannie Bell Wright will make you take a new look at the ordinary. Her book, Flow: A Medley of Poems (the something), is an interesting collection of poems that reflect things most of us feel and do every day. Many women (and men) lament over not having a relationship. We’ve all had to say goodbye to someone we love. And there is the frustration of trying to find a tomato that actually tastes like a tomato. These are some of the diverse topics she covers in her poetry.
The poems in Flow: A Medley of Poems contain words that speak, teach, preach, and heal. Wright’s use of contrasts, such as hot and cold, encourages readers to think deeper about relationships of all kinds.
