'Silver Threads' is the first collection of poetry by Jade Kennedy, one of the most recent literary talents to emerge from the city of Hull. Like the 'white wild flower sprung up between the cracks' of her opening poem, Jade's poetic voice has its roots in urban reality, its attention fixed at the sky, and a considerable elegance of its own.

The poems are filled to the brim

Poetry emcompasses ideas, feelings and thoughts. It can be concrete or abstract. Poetry says so much in so little. I am a poet so I understand the poetic mind. It can speak of something and then unexpectedly, for the reader, take an about turn. There are no absolutes.

This is a delightful collection of poems by a very talented writer. Kennedy's grasp of the English language is stunning as she weaves beautiful, evocative images in the space of a few short lines. These poems really captured my heart and mind and are definitely ones I could return to again and again, getting more out of them each time. If poetry is your thing, I can highly recommend checking out this collection.
