Description of the Book :


In Confetti Spring, Sarah A. Hughes celebrates the seasons in a collection of poetry and short prose on what happens in the ground when you think you’re planted. The images follow a move to the South from California, and confront what was rumored to be expected. Leaning heavily on an escape to nature, the poetry challenges a myth of status quo that claims that one can’t do fine if they choose a different path. It’s written in light of enduring expectations that overshadow life, both during a pandemic and before. Set against a backdrop of careers where people aren’t treated as equal contributors, with a burgeoning social media cult of “new normal” materializing, this collection asks how one should exist when a lack of integrity seems commonplace. Written in a variety of forms and free verse, it is a look at common experiences and personal memoir through poetry. Exploring themes of freedom and authenticity, the poems consider if one can be free if they do not first free the observer in their soul. Surrounded by new flowers, Confetti Spring considers what happens if a rollercoaster is abandoned.
