About the Book

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.
