Poetry Book Review: Jamaican Pebbles by Denise N. Fyffe

Jamaican Pebbles by Poetess Denise N. Fyffe

Jamaican Pebbles: Poetry Pocketbook by Denise N. Fyffe

This was my second book. It has a compilation of poetry from various genres. The full color edition of this book actually utilized visual elements to help represent the story in each poem. I also did a pocketbook version of the book because the colored version would be more expensive for some.

Poetic words that express a range of experiences; including general life events, love, the spiritual and social issues. Jamaican Pebbles also contributes snippets or gems of wisdom that are true to guiding anyone through life.
Enjoy this excerpt from the book:

The White Fairy

Howling currents from hell
Ravage her thin frame
As she soldiers on through the arctic snow;

She retreats deeper within herself,
Behind the mental barricades,
That would protect her
From this torturous prison;

Though she doubts…

The savage beasts keeps plummeting her back,

Like a slave under the lashes of cat-o-nine tails;
She sees the white fairy surface to meet her face and suddenly she is thick in it;
Struggling back to her weary knees,
She tracks on;

Like a fissure in the Mississippi dam,
She surrenders to the tormenting thoughts of despair creeping in her brain
Like localized parasitic protoplasmic Amoeba;

Sobbing uncontrollably now,
She looks up and glimpses a blue light on the horizon;
She starts running
As if the hyenas of Hades were on her heels
Racing to hope;

She blinks,
Her vision blurry
Seeing unfamiliar faces;
“Emme, you’re awake….”
Shouts echo down the hall,
Sounding in her head,
Like a church bell on speed.

A shadowy shape in a glowing crisp garb enters and speaks,
“Finally young lady, you’ve awaken from your coma.”
Emme blinks.
