Just Because: An Anthology of Meditative Poetry to Soothe the Spirit, Barbara Deraoui

Anthology, Poetry & Essay

A compilation of poetry put together as an anthology that has been written over the years. The majority of the included poetry is meditative in nature in the hopes of evoking a sense of peace and harmony. I view it as a form of artistic expression like painting with words in the hopes of inspiring a vision in the readers mind that is unique to them.

Just Because is an incredible poetry book that has made me fall in love with poetry all over again. The sad truth is is that I do not read poetry books as much as I would like to but this is not my choice. The reason I have not read many poetry books recently is that the ones I have been finding seem to be generic and not original which is what I hate in any book, let alone a poetry book! If I read a poetry book, it has to be incredible and has to transfix me as well as charm me and make me feel a host of different emotions. That is why I am so happy to have discovered Just Because by Barbara Deraoui because this poetry book is one of the most original, unique and beautifully crafted poetry books I have ever had the pleasure of reading. If you are a reader who adores poetry and getting lost in beautiful and calming poems that will move you, then Just Because is the poetry book for you and should not be missed!

Just Because is a collection of poems written by Barbara Deraoui written over the course of a few years. The book is a collection of poems that Deraoui is written, and as Deraoui has written herself, she said that it is “meditative in nature,” and wow they really are! The poems laced throughout the book are incredibly calming and will make readers feel a sense of peace.

The poems laced throughout Just Because are exceptional as well as original and transfixing and I know that they are because even though I have finished reading them all, I can’t stop thinking about them! That is when you know book lovers when you have found a sensational book, it is so exceptional that I found myself re-reading parts and getting lost in them even further.

Barbara Deraoui is a newly discovered poet of mine, but I wish I had found her work sooner because never before have I been so transfixed by poems. I have read a lot of poems in my time, especially since a young age but never have I ever been so provoked by one, emotionally and mentally. Deraoui does this with her mesmerizing prose and well developed and structured poems. The poems honestly will keep readers turning the pages from beginning to end so do not miss out!

As Just Because is a sensational, unique, and beautiful poetry book that should not be missed, I, of course, have to award this stellar book five stars! So please, have a read of Just Because and get lost in the captivating words of Barbara Deraoui and be compelled to read from the very beginning to the very end.

I am thrilled with the review that Aimee Ann wrote about my book, Just Because. an anthology of meditative poetry. This book as stated above is a collection of pieces that I have written over the last few years, though some are older than that. I have been writing poetry for several decades but in 2004 the style of writing changed and evolved a bit into what it is now. These writings start as a feeling or image in my mind which I then try to describe. I want to take the reader with me. Some of the writings have… Read more »
