Title: The Passing of the Night
Author: Joanne Van Leerdam
People experience all kinds of night: loneliness, grief, depression, anxiety, fear, pain, and countless other darknesses.
This collection of profound lyrical poems explores the poet’s own experiences and observations of both dark and light, revealing her determination to not only survive, but to conquer whatever tries to overcome her.
At the end of it all, the poet demonstrates that the smallest sign of light is enough to help a wandering soul find hope in the passing of the night.
Beautiful collection of short poems ranging in subjects from love to drought to heartbreak. The way the author uses various metaphors to shadow loss and sadness is refreshing. Even if you’re not a real big fan of poetry, there are some lines in here that will really grip you. Good read if you’re looking for some deep quotes to ponder.
