Once I received the digital reading copy of this poetry book from the author, I immediately read it before the day ends. The book is divided into five parts: Loss, Pain & Depression; Abandonment; Love; Empowerment; and Healing. Love and Healing parts got the most number of poems with 34 and 36 respectively, while Empowerment has the least with only four. I consider the last three sections of this anthology the best because of how they exude positivity or being optimistic. There are a lot of relatable and remarkable poems in this collection that will be more appreciated notably by the millennials. Some of the poems that I love is Consumed By Her, #MeToo, Stance against Suppression, and Fear is a Curable Disease. Despite that I found some of the included poems to be repetitious because of the theme, especially in the topic of pain and love, I was still able to enjoy reading the rest of the book.
Wild Flowers by Michelle Smith is a collection of deeply personal, emotive poetry. The collection has been artfully curated and arranged to tell a story, which moves from loss and pain to healing and survival. Through her words, Smith's journey from grief, parental abandonment and heartbreak to empowerment and healing is beautifully detailed. I hunkered down one afternoon with a cup of tea and dove into this poetry collection. I found that I was not only reading a truly poetic narrative that moved from beginning to middle to triumphant end, but I was getting to know the struggles and victories of the author. I highly recommend Wild Flowers to anyone who enjoys poetry written in a woman's strong and resilient voice.
