A literary interplay of lyrical prose and metrical verses harmoniously weave together in Tapestries of Life’s Poetries, a posthumous anthology craftily weaved by poet Anthony Urzia. Like an orchestra conductor flawlessly leading a symphony of rhymes, tempos and stanzas, Urzia regales the reader with one poem after the other.

Nancy Urzia, the poet’s mother, wrote in the volume’s introduction that her son has always wanted to become a writer. “He has written so many beautiful and touching pieces of poetry,” she further explained. “My son got lost and found his way back. During those dark times his writing was his comfort zone that leads him back to sanity. His works talks about his suffering and torment as he struggled in his desire to be free of pain. Like any other, he was searching for answers and sought guidance in religion. He sought motivation by reading the Bible. He became spiritual.”

In “Majestica”, Urzia transports the reader to a kingdom of majesty/filled with demonic travesty/a world filled with dragons and dolphins/and a God’s arm that is open. An equally stunning piece of micro fiction also comes in the collection with the same title. A warrior wishes to retire with his one true love in “Heroes Lament” – I will be led by faith and follow The Lord/one day I will find my true love/I shall quit my fighting for her/ so I don’t die by the sword.

Both the lyrical and spiritual are traversed by Urzia in the interstices of Tapestries of Life’s Poetries. Urzia’s legacy certainly lives on in this heartfelt and honest anthology.
