Metaphorically Speaking Mostly
by Sharon Lockwood

Metaphorically Speaking Mostly is a book full of metaphoric poetry. Because poetry is an expression of our inner self, many will take away something different in the mean..

Carolyn Howard-Johnson
Poetry Book: Tracings

5.0 out of 5 stars Little Book BIG HEART, August 4, 2009
By  W. Joyce White "Joyce White" (Belleville, Illinois) - See all my reviews   
W. Joyce White says:
Carolyn Howard-Johnson, is the author of Tracings, a wondrous little poem book of 24 pages. Even though it is little, it is written with a "mighty" big heart. As years go by it is true we are no longer immune from "unbandaged wounds." Her words not mine. As a retailer, writer, poet, and book promoter, she has led a very interesting life and her description of geography is superb. We can almost feel the Nordic rain she speaks of on our skin. Joyce Carol Oates says you discover your best poems while writing your worst prose. Most poets just call just call this using our "creative license." Carolyn intertwines reality and metaphors very expertly using her own creative license. I find myself being pulled into her poem, "Poetry. You and I touch even though we are light years apart." We all perceive each pother's art differently. Her words pretty much sum up all our lives..."Tracings. Echoes. Deeds done and undone, transformed existence, loved ones here and gone."

She also wrote, "Who believes the dead don't speak?" Her loved ones are whispering through her poetry as she records what is past. She imagined her medicine cabinet as an arched tombstone with tears rolling down the mirror. ..shear my image...a last look at her face in my lenses." No, it is not with our ears we listen to the dead. It is with our senses. Sometimes I get a whiff of my mom's canned blackberries or her favorite perfume. We carry in our hearts only one constant desire, and that is to rewrite our past and bring the dead back to life. Although Carolyn and her readers may be a world apart, like her we cannot, "wash the memory or the present clean or clear." Her words. Five Stars from me!
