Life is a Treasure
Poetry has a rhythm of its own—one that speaks to the mind and deeply impacts the heart. Karen Ann Treasure, in her beautiful poetry book Life is a Treasure, captures the intricacies of life, love, and relationships. Divided into two parts, Speak to Me and Matters of the Heart, Karen Ann’s book offers more than 75 poems written by a strong, creative, and honest woman. The author has a knack for finding the perfect rhyming combinations, and readers may find themselves reciting the poems aloud to further feel their beat and musicality. One is reminded of spoken word sessions. Karen Ann’s faith shines through in poems like Quiet Time and Angelic Wings. Fan favorites are sure to include Unclassified, a poem that takes on the notion of labeling and classifying oneself and turns it on its head. The poet does indeed define herself but, at the same time, delivers the message that no one can be defined in a simple way—we are all multi-dimensional.
Karen Ann’s love poems take us to sandy shores and beaches filled with moonlights and romance. Only a woman who has experienced deep, passionate love can capture its essence like the author does in poems like Wild Nights and Rendezvous. In Treasure’s world, love is something to make sacrifices for and something to take a chance on. Just as in life, there are ups and downs, but love does prevail. Karen Ann ends the book with a song titled You Will Remember Me. Even though the notes are not printed on the page, readers will hear a tune as they take in the words.
Every reader will find a poem to identify with, whether as a woman, a mother, a lover, a traveler, or as a friend. Life certainly is a treasure with Karen Ann Treasure’s poetry.
