Red Lanterns

Oh, how they kiss the winds
With a cultural embrace.
A harmonious balance
Alights the promenade,
Feng Shui.
An escape to tradition
A journey of peace
And silent affirmation.
The cleansing of spirit and home,
Red Lanterns
Await the dawn
Of the Lunar New Year.
Gong Xi Fa Cai




Professional Reviews

Lovely Imagery of China
"Joanne Olivieri begins her chapbook “Red Lanterns” with her poem of the same title. In this first poem in her book the first line reads “Oh, how they kiss the winds with a cultural embrace.” I became enchanted with this first poem and may I say that it continued throughout her entire chapbook. For anyone who has visited Hong Kong it will bring back happy memories and for someone unfamiliar with this exciting city it will shine a light upon the enchanting atmosphere Hong Kong has to offer. Joanne expresses her insight into this culture with excitement, knowledge, respect and admiration that shines through in her poetry. I highly recommend this wonderful chapbook to anyone, and I look forward to reading anything else by this talented lady." Connie Marcum Wong - Author of Island Creations

A Delicious Wonderment
"My wife and I both really enjoyed reading through the poems in this cozy collection. Olivieri's writing has a beautiful clarity and is able to evoke emotions effortlessly. At turns playful, sensual, reflective... but always full of a delicious wonderment." - Jerry H. Award Winning Lyricist/Songwriter

RED LANTERNS is a smorgasbord of the senses
"RED LANTERNS is a smorgasbord of the senses taking us on a tour of sight, smell, taste and the passions of life - Inspirational reading." -Dr. C David Hay
