After reading Joy Street by Laura Foley a few years ago I was excited to read her newest poetry collection Night Ringing. It is another stark and beautiful collection from this poet whose poems I find simple and yet so complicated.
This collection follows Laura’s life from childhood through to the present. They reflect on divorce, finding love, and moving on from all that life throws at us. What I love about her poetry is the sharpness with which she portrays the emotions she’s feeling and in turn allowing us to feel them as well. I can sit down with her poetry and understand exactly what she’s trying to say and for me that lets me truly enjoy her pieces.
I have a few favorites in this collection but one of my favorites is so simple and short and yet holds so much meaning for the poet. With spring a new life – a new beginning.
Spring about to begin.
I eagerly look forward to reading this collection again while anticipating the author’s next collection. Recommended for poetry lovers!
