The reader experiences exploration, amusement, elation, ecstasy, sorrow and pain infused by words like:
mourning, desire, fickle heart, games of love, dreams, jealousy, forbidden love, blankness, unfulfilled love, hearts weeping for kind words, entrapment, tears, awakening, silence.....
The poems are awakening and a confirmation of feelings a woman experiences in her quest for true love and the expression of pain in lost love. Sentiments of joy, passion, lust and mourning are expressed in imagery like flames, storms, sky, stars, sea, river, clouds ... An example : "a grey and mourning dove stealing and killing heart".
The passion, desire and loss of love is reinforced by phrases like " infested love", "faded and distorted love", love without passion is a lie", and "feigned love is seen as "a thief of passion".
Literature has, through her schooling and experience, made a true and pure imprint on this talented poet who is a wordsmith by nature. Her work is easily communicated in written and verbal form. For me as reviewer, it was a cleansing exercise to review Ms Sobey's work. The value of her work to a reader is defined by her in Sonnet 130: Deepest Connexions. In summary:
Connecting minds is what poetry does. Connecting readers to the poet's prized words, carefully etched, grown from her soul to connect the body, mind and spirit of the reader through special words that create meanings and a voice so receptive to the soul. For silence is "the verse so blank you write".
Readers pick love's flower and like birds and bees, plunge into this love's flower, which is nature's gift to us so that we can find love and joy, fulfilment and connexions ( x= poet's choice).
Words excite and connects this poet's heart to mine!
