Book Review: Lost In A Quatrain

I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Lost in a Quatrain: Poetry Anthology by Adiela Akoo is a collection of poems that the poet wrote in an attempt to honor poetry itself.

Using her own experiences from life, the poet tries to show us her inner world. Some of the poems are about everyday life and others are about esoteric conflict.

Poetry is relative. Some poems were utterly foreign to me and others I felt I was in the same room as the poet listening to her reciting her poems to me.

I also liked that some of the poems did not have a strict form of a rhyme.

Adiela Akoo wrote an anthology of poems that has a little bit of everything for everyone.
