Book Review - Tiny Mirrors by Gabriella Meghan

My method for reading poetry is fairly stable. Especially work from a poet who is unknown to me. I read it all through once quickly. I’m picking up on language use, on rhyme, on rhythm, and on the use of language but only at a superficial level. I then reread a day or two later and take my time. I look again at poems that stand out to me – and these might be different every time I read the collection – and then I think about what the words are actually saying to me. The beauty of poetry to me is that I have no way of knowing if what I am “hearing” is what the poet actually meant to say to me. That to me is the point of good poetry. I can read my emotions and my pain into someone else’s words and find solace, or joy, or a sense of not being alone.
