Wolf Woman and Other Poems is an enthralling collection of 50 poems covering 50 years of Jo-Ann Vega's life. Divided into three parts, the poems act as a form of memoir as Jo-Ann recounts the different stages of her being, from Becoming/Discovering (1970-1980) to Unfurling My Wings (1980-2000) to Awakenings (2000-2020). Once Again speaks about the daily rigors of life where one finds comfort in one's love for another human being. Woman Child is the story of a woman trapped within the confines of her own set boundaries. In Premature Death, the narrator mourns the murder of a close relative and wishes to have known them better when they were alive. The narrator calls upon her inner spiritual guide in times of turmoil in Wolf Woman. Coping shows how people express themselves through their preferred artistic medium.
Drawing inspiration from her own life, Jo-Ann Vega pens some beautiful poems that are bound to strike a chord in your heart. In this poetry collection/memoir, Jo-Ann leaves nothing unsaid and lays bare her soul as her poetic verses take readers through the ups and downs of her life, which make you ponder and force you to introspect. The poems deal with themes of love, family, romance, loss, heartbreak, passion, and much more. Despite the stylistic similarities and universal themes, each poem feels unique and brings something of its own to the narrative. Wolf Woman and Other Poems is a mesmerizing collection that I thoroughly enjoyed. Highly recommended to poetry lovers.
