Poetry is an intensely personal glimpse into the writer's life, and nowhere is this more evident than in Inside The Invisible Box by Zandra W. Bosie. Combining abstract image and language patterns, Zandra conveys and explores tiers of emotion often defining the human condition. She presents thoughts that are reflective of growth, change, and human spirit; illustrating how her perspective was shaped over a period of time. The author draws from personal experience, communicating universal themes and ideas. She provides snapshots of her life's struggles and triumphs by accompanying verse selections with prose impressions.
Using verbal imagery, the author expresses emotions in abstract thought that are brought to life through words. Her poetic pieces invite readers on a journey to creatively explore the feelings brought by memories of times past and present. Bosie's subtle mastery allows the reader a glimpse into her style of storytelling through short prose that only hints at more to come.
The author begins with Snippet One, an opening that describes the events surrounding the death of her grandmother. The author then takes us on a journey of self revelation. For example Snippet three deals with spirituality, speaking of an unseen presence that she goes on to depict in the poem of the same name. Snippet nine deals with notions of heritage and history, with the author identifying an "unquestionable connection" she feels to a specific country despite having "yet to travel its vast expanse."
Part Two highlights "Children in Silence," "Gravel," and "Far Away Lost Places" slowly suggesting a darker, more haunting revelation of hurt and pain while "I Am" and "Positive Me" present a certain stance toward the challenges one might find in a sometimes uncertain modern society. Throughout the book the author sprinkles the pages with storytelling in works such as "Mysterious Wonder," "Camouflaged Footsteps," "Between the Bridge and the Hook," "Passers By," "Pictures," and "Summer Waters."
From the peaks and valleys normally associated with romance to the strength one might find through faith, Inside the Invisible Box generates an intimate vision. It will enlighten, stir, and inspire any reader who may be following a similar path.
