A Peek Into My Soul Redux is poetry in motion. The poems take visual shape, jump off the page, slide in your psyche and jumpstart your imagination; subtly.
A snapshot of the human experience, Redux touches on the little things that make life ~ life; such as politics, love lost and won, family, friendships, spirituality and religion, hope and healing, showcasing life in all its glory; the good, the bad and the ugly.
Reading Redux is like traveling a worn path through a well-lit forest. Every tree has a story. In their silence, if you listen closely enough, you will see that each individual tree makes up the whole of the forest with slight interconnections along the way.
The poems contained within have no boundaries and no limits on life’s observations through the lens of the author, chronicling her growth, her mistakes, licks taken, lessons learned and the pursuit of peace, balance and happiness.
With well over 70 poems, A PEEK INTO MY SOUL REDUX is a weighty collection. The poems are divided into eight categories ranging from Webb’s personal insight, to family and love, and even a section with a mixed bag of subjects. The poems are personal and socially conscious. The poetry covers the emotions we all experience in our lives. I enjoyed the compilation, but the one poem that resonated with me was the final one in the collection. “If I Could Go Back”, which is an ode to musicians of the past who gave us music to live by, but whose own lives were cut short. This particular poem had me patting my feet to an imaginary beat and swaying my body to an unheard tune, because from the Webb’s words I could hear each and every one of the musician’s songs in my mind. Being the last piece, it made quite the final impression on me.
A PEEK INTO MY SOUL REDUX is not a collection to read breezily. It is to be savored and read over time. I found Webb's rhyming ability for most of the poetry to be incredible. It is not usual to read poetry, which carries rhyming schemes much anymore, so it was a welcomed experience. The poetic pieces at times could be long, which is also a nuance for many of the collections I have read lately. However, this collection's strength lies in her technique, range of poems and her ability to draw the reader into her personal poems wholeheartedly. -Cashana Seals
