a review by Sarah Smithson
Title of Book: September: traces of letting go
Author : Katrina K Guarascio
Photography by: Gina Marselle
Guarascio gently weaves together simply written stories of love and release with consistency of the changing of seasons. Each poem is a delicate and welcome punch to the senses and as addictive as pomegranate seeds. Every word is full of intent and as precious as a ruby-red jewel. The bittersweet emotion infused into each poem is refreshing to the eyes.
Guarascio stands out among the multitude of verbose poets; simplicity is her tool and she is a master of page craft. These poems are without flaw and each piece reflects the assurance that through love and loss, life will blossom. This collection is for anyone who wishes to see the softer side of letting go, coping with loss, and moving on.
