More than just words on a page, poetry is the way in which Lavinia both see and responds to everyday life. Her love of poetry grew from childhood church recitations. Rhyme and rhythm, stanzas and lyrics took the poet to places where language could embellish and be ornate. She'd found a place to call home. She began publishing her poems in High School. She continued to have her work in a literary magazine, while in college, and other publications, over the years, including online. This is Lavinia's first collection of poetry. Poetry in Plain Sight is the first in a 7 book series, Sophrosyne, chronicling life through a variety of free verse poems. This first book highlights the journey to excellence and true self awareness that writing poetry brings the poet.This highly anticipated collection includes works previously seen on social media. Poetry is often right before the eyes. We just have to read it.
