Trees & Truths by Anntonette Jackson is a poetry compilation that takes readers on a delightful journey
through nature, exploring lessons of growth, self-assurance, and acceptance.
Whether it’s society’s role or manufactured
lies that are
hindering our growth toward self-acceptance and self-assurance, Jackson has
addressed all the issues that we might be facing in our journey toward
advancement - both mental and emotional. Inspired by her walks through
the trees, Jackson presents the idea that our discovery of the truths and
knowledge of nature plays an integral part in our personal development and
consciousness of who we are, and it's only when we accept nature and society as
a whole that we expand our horizons and create a positive outlook in life.
Jackson is a Canadian poet and author who has been writing poetry since early
adulthood. In the beginning, most of her work was focused on romantic poetry,
but now she has grown to juggle themes
of raw human emotions in all their
vulnerable glory, nature, and facing the great truths in life. The poet’s ability to create a connection
between trees and the human ability to heal and grow will present a
thought-provoking picture in the minds of readers.
Jackson uses personification and strong imagery in her poetry,
and these themes are also found
in her previous works, including Earth miSUNderstood the Moon and A Heart Minds the Soul. A perfect read
for those who enjoy reading about
ideas, concepts, and well-crafted themes. This collection is resonant and
brilliantly composed and a delightful reading experience for poetry lovers.
