the butterflies have died by Rinoshun
Self Published | April 13th, 2020
‘The butterflies have died’ is the debut poetry collection by Rinoshun. It contains 50 poems on various themes from war to love to lose and other personal poems. This book is for anyone who feels deeply about things that go on around them and around the world.
So I’m going to be honest here and go ahead and tell you that I don’t read a lot of poetry, at least not as much as everything else I read. I read this book of poetry in about an hour. I enjoyed reading the poems and deciphering the meaning which wasn’t too hard. Although full of emotion, these poems are not exactly ‘love’ poems. These poems are about love, loss, and war so, as the title suggests, these are not happy poems. Most of the poems are formed as questions that the author allows the reader to come to the conclusion that love inevitably comes and goes. I think the author did a good job of conveying their emotions in several free verse poems that a lot of people could relate to. I would recommend this book to anyone looking for some relatable poetry about love and loss in relationships.
Thank you, Rinoshun for this arc in exchange for an honest review.
