BRAID Poems & Thoughts

by Pierre Sotér

Poetry

LoveReading View on BRAID Poems & Thoughts

Braid Poems And Thoughts is a diverse collection of verses by Pierre Sotér, compiled by Anna Tegner.

These poems explore human sentiment and the unrelenting of Time, through nature symbolism and motifs pertaining to suns, moons, seas and stars thereby giving a sense of human insignificance and natural beauty. 

Poems such as Like Fire poeticize human inclination, likening the Moon locked into its orbit to the echo of former pain. I’ll Ask reiterates our ephemeral being in light of pining for eternal youth. 

For I want to live after rages the storm

and I want to buy silver light in the Moon. 

The nature symbolism bears its presence in many of Sotér’s poems, including Symmmetric Blue, Waves & Tides; a poem that artistically renders the waves of the sea galloping like a horse and Silver Drops where mere rain is compared to silver, in such a way that exposes our shallow nature as humans. 

In my world, silver shines and drops,

but in others, it’s sold in shops.

This vast selection of free verse and rhyme includes relatable poems, bound to resonate with many readers, such as Read which perfectly renders the world as beyond the scope of human words and thus personally affected me, as one who revels in reading and writing. The Shakespearean inspired rhyming couplets that culminated such poems as Read and many others were very percipient ways of resounding Sotér’s candid wisdom.

“Read this world of ours, but do it right,

And then, with human words, let’s try to write.”

Sotér is a deft weaver of emotive imagery but his scholarly use of metaphor often got lost on me, an everyday reader in a world of artistic subjectivity. Still one can appreciate his grasp on the futile yet beautifully infinite nature of life and humanity.
