When you read Shavonda Robinson’s poetry you feel the warmth in her words, the intentions she has, and her sentiments about various things. Reading this book was therapeutic because the author wrote from her heart. Every word, line, or stanza in Thy Paintbrush to Abstracting Images elicits some form of reaction from the reader. It is amazing how just one poem can make one reflect on their life and everything surrounding them. A single poem or even a single stanza from Shavonda Robinson can make you change your perspective on different things. This includes nature, relations with people, family, and norms in society. Once you complete the book, you will get to understand why human beings are different and what makes life so beautiful and precious.
One of the most notable elements in Shavonda Robinson’s poetry is that they are easy to comprehend. Shavonda Robinson uses modest words and simple phrases that do not need a lot of time to decipher. As a lover of poetry, you will appreciate the mind of the poet.

Every poem is different and special. I loved reading each of them but had a few favorites. I liked that the first poem in the book was a dedication to all the people and things that mattered in the author’s life. One can tell that Shavonda Robinson has a strong connection with her creator and her family. The poem titled ‘Dedication’ is also there to remind us to be grateful for what we have. Life is beautiful and so we are reminded to be thankful for everything we have; it could be family, your career, your country, or talents. Other poems that stood out to me include ’Captivating Tastes’, ‘Fixed Thoughts’. ‘Lyrical Galaxy’. Dream of Wisdom’, ‘Laughter Teardrop’, ‘Poetic Divas’ and ‘The Walls of Poetry’.
