A wonderful review of Life Lines…
The themes in Life Lines by Sue Vincent are varied, accessible and remarkable in their ability to let you see things through her eyes. Commonplace topics such as a sunset, are described so perfectly and with a fresh viewpoint that reminds us that this moment is unique – that this particular sunset will never return.
The mood varies but the quality of the writing never loses its power or its clarity. There is much to stir the soul here and the way that Sue Vincent captures the essence of things – whether it’s watching a lover sleeping, a mother appreciating what age and experience has done to her body or an awareness of the natural world that we’re part of. The commonplace becomes remarkable when we see it from her perspective.
It’s hard to write a review of poetry because it’s impossible not to introduce a subjectivity that picks out details that appeal more to one person than another. What I can say is that there are poems here that will satisfy everyone – even those who don’t think they like poetry. That is the mark of a remarkable poet.
Poems from a Reflection
“The pen paints the souls longing in jewel tones.”
A collection of fifty-two poems of life, love and inspiration.
There are joys for which we cannot find expression, moments that have a depth of emotion that can only be shared in images. It is here that poetry comes into its own, for the pictures we paint with words can conjure all the emotions of the human heart. From solitude to passion, from aspiration to the quest for the soul’s inner light, we seek to find ways to share our journey through life, to witness our footsteps as we pass through its shifting sands and cast a reflection on time itself. The poet is both mirror and reflection, framing the images of a human life and giving them a beating heart.
