I lit candles, turned on ocean sounds and began to open up this beautiful book. I love reading poetry because unlike my traditional love for novels it makes me really dig deep into my emotions. I love reading independent books from authors and finding random amazon books that are hidden from the public. The Flowering Woman made you feel excitement, sadness, love, and so much more. It spoke to me about growing as a woman, finding love, realizing your worth and acknowledging who you are as a person. This book was 103 pages but it felt like 10 pages. Each poem dug deep and with the candles setting the mood I couldn't help but be hooked. Q. Gibson thank you so much for writing such a wonderful book and showing the amazing parts of being a woman. The author made me realize we are all flowers and will continue to grow throughout life.
The book was broken up into four different parts: On Self & Being, On Love & Heartbreak, Healing, Grieving & Growing, and On Life. Each part was deep and really spoke to you. But, my favorite would have to be On Self. I love the aspect of looking within and realizing that you are a flower that will grow. Hince why the book is called The Flowering Woman. Each part of the book speaks for itself by the title. Love & Heartbreak spoke about breakups, loving one self and acknowledging a good partner. Healing, Grieving and Growing was about growing and understanding lonliness. On Life spoke on living and growing.
Gibson was able to speak about the most important parts of your growing and show that each aspect of your life has a flipside but at the end of the day it was for your benefit. I enjoyed this book so much and it was perfect with my candles and ocean sound vibe. I think you guys should check out the book and many more other poetry books. I will be writing on different authors in the future. Reading one book a month is part of my 2017 goals and I am glad that this was my first book of the year (: What is on your book list for the year?
