I rarely write detailed reviews except once awhile when a litrary work captures my attention wholesomely. Today I’m going to share my genuine thoughts on one, and I promise to keep it succinct.
When you think of the kind of poems that leave special memorable messages in the heart, the likes that you want to keep reading and wishing never ends, then think no further than Daphny Nianghoi‘s recent beautiful collection dubbed “Write Out Loud“.
When I began reading this poetry book, I was immediately captivated by the natural flow of thoughts and the writer’s touch with reality. I found it delectably satisfying and full of powerful exudes of wisdom.
Written from an introvert’s perspective, the poems cover a wide range of themes such as personal freedom, friendship, morality, lifestyle, pain and death, inspiration, growing up, personal development, love and heartbreak, mannerism, friendship and evil vs good, among others.
As a reader with keen interest in the stylistic flavour of writings, Daphny’s ability to create mental pictures using words (vivid description) did not escape my attention. Throughout my reading, I noticed that she was able to effortlessly create exquisitely evocative mental scenes that clearly conveyed the messages she had for the audience, thus making the poems generally appealing to read.
I love to feel the touch of the wind, as I lay beneath staring at the moon and stars, listening to music as I write, of the glorious night, I live to see. I love to dance in the rain, soak me in the river deep, feel the warmth of the sun on a cold winter morning…From “Reasons Behind my Smile” in the poetry book “Write Out Loud” by Daphny Nianghoi.
This description couldn’t be any better.
Well, aside from a few failures on the part of the editor, Write Out Loud is easy to read and conceive in one sitting and should be a rush-for to every reader interested in meaningful poetry.
I hope you enjoy reading it as I did.
