A Home Made Out of Words by Nyki Edwinna is a short compilation of poems that touch on subjects such as the beauty of poetry and the life experiences the author has been through. The collection begins with an informative About the Author section as well as a nice table of contents. Within those contents, the book is comprised of twenty-five free verse poems which are quite short in nature with the shortest being only 4 lines long. There is no set rhythm from poem to poem and no regular rhyming pattern.
While reading the poetry by Nyki Edwinna in A Home Made Out of Words, I noticed two things very quickly. First, I noted how well the cover was designed; the second was the beautiful use of metaphors throughout the collection. Many of the poems seem targeted toward teaching the reader a new lesson about writing, such as the importance of writing from the heart and to find value in oneself over the opinions of others. The formatting of each page was uniform with each poem placed in the upper-right hand corner of its page. Ultimately, A Home Made Out of Words is an enjoyable read with many wonderful highs and only a handful of hiccups. I would recommend this book to anyone who is lacking a little inspiration in their life as they’re likely to find it within these pages.
