FIRE RAINBOW by Robin Anna Smith is a stark and forthright look into a life journey of a child turned adult navigating through a world accepting only of binaries, unreasonable parental expectations, and other people's disregard for consent and boundaries; seeking redemption from the effects of deep-rooted trauma; and finding self exclusive of societal labels, norms, and confined boxes.
In this evocative confessional memoir-style chapbook, Robin Anna Smith beautifully and seamlessly merges prose with haiku and tanka into haibun and tanka stories respectively, taking liberties to play with form, shedding light on these powerful poetic devices and allowing Robin to explore heavy subject matters in a fluid, ambiguous, and free manner.
Where the FIRE RAINBOW journey starts off rigid, dark, and restrained stylistically, it unravels openly, vibrantly, and unabashedly, leaving readers feeling pure catharsis, release, and unrestraint.
