“On the Way” by Penny Villegas is an anthology of poems and short texts inspired by her personal experiences living in Colombia, the US and other places. Love and family are two big forces that stimulated the author to share the lyrical images of her perceptions and ideas that gestated this collection.


The elegant diction in the poems create vivid images that the readers will enjoy, they will be transported to the Santa Fe River, a starry night, and many other lands, situations and atmospheres. 


I particularly enjoy the use of language in Villegas’ writing, each word and rhetorical device perfectly conveys a mood. The elements of each text seem to be carefully selected to form a coherent whole that is very well complemented with the image selection.


My personal favorite is “Amigos”; the tone of melancholy for good times is set from the beginning. I could picture myself talking about serious topics with good old friends in a Caribbean hot afternoon. The sound perfectly matches the theme and the line breaks are so subtle that the story wraps you in its atmosphere. Is the kind of feeling that you get when reminiscing about a routine you no longer follow but it gave you treasurable memories.


Through the book, we can experience a whirl of emotions, not in a violent way but rather like a quick glance of different times in life that evoke very specific moods.

Definitely worth reading, readers will find themselves going back to the poems and enjoying them every time.
