Poetry is one of my favorite genres so when I had the chance to actually speak about a poetry book that I have read quite a few times.... I needed to make a review of it (: The Flowering Woman by Q. Gibson has been on my bookshelf ever since I got it and I decided to reread it and write my personal thoughts on it because when it comes to reviews I always want to refresh my memory and open my mind to new possibilities.
Plot: According to Amazon, The Flowering Woman was written by Q. Gibson and this is her debut collection of poetry and prose written for the woman who has longed to find healing and solace in her journey. Womanhood is a universal connector and surviving it is necessary. The collection unveils through the eyes of the writer some hurt, truth and ultimate healing on the journey to becoming a woman. Each section will encourage women to grow, feel, tend to their battles and recognize that every woman is also fighting a soft battle of her own.
Do not spoil yourself dying to be everything
expects you to be. Sweet thing, this is how you preserve
My thoughts: The Flowering Woman is the flowering woman. I know you're probably like what? Well.. what I mean is that the title speaks for itself. The entire book made the reader understand how women flower into who they are. Blooming into a flower as we get older is the theme that I noticed while reading. I feel like I was able to connect with different points in the book because I am still growing as a woman and it is refreshing for a book to focus on that aspect. The Flowering Woman speaks about how a woman goes through different stages in her life and how we continue to blossom but in a positive way.
Q. Gibson made me realize that we go through issues all the time but that you aren't alone. Honestly, this book was like having your journal entries read out-loud and you were able to connect from an experience in your life. There were many poems that made me realize that we as women go through the same types of issues, such as choosing the wrong path, partner or friend. But, we can look at ourselves as a flowering woman continuing to grow. I am glad that I have this book to look back on as I get older.
