A wonderful book for fans of poetry, In the Posh Cocoon: Poetry and Bits of Life by Antonia Wang features a collection of poems written from 2019 to 2020. It is a slim book, but a lovely collection for anyone who enjoys the beauty of poetry and words that conjure images in the minds of readers. In these poems, readers encounter a style that is original, a voice that is fresh and captivating. The poems articulate on a variety of themes, including love, life, freedom, adventure, and even death.
There are those rare moments when you find writing that defies categorization and challenges every attempt at describing it and In the Posh Cocoon: Poetry and Bits of Life is one such book. The poems are short and they give the reader the experience of biting a cookie: It is quickly consumed, but the flavor and taste linger on in the mouth. It is interesting how the poet allows images from nature to speak to her emotions and thoughts: “Fly these cordial clouds through iris skies / where the storms that pierced my wings won’t stultify / nascent dreams.” At times, the voice is intimate, exploring the inner world of the poet and her thoughts. At times, it is the voice of someone observing life as it unfolds before their gaze. It is written in free verse, laden with strong imagery and diction that is carefully selected. The photography adds to the beauty of this lyrical work and augments the entertainment that readers will derive from it. Antonia Wang’s poetry is beautiful and will speak to the hearts and minds of readers in a powerful way.
