The Invitation: To Journey Through a Conscious Mind, is a showcase in talent from author and poet Tyfany Janee. She’s eloquently produced the anthology through plaintive artistic angst. Injecting the essence of her soul into her prose. The diverse collection of poetry which lies between the covers is the result of an entire life’s work experimenting within her vocation.
Her work is comprised of truth, meaning, hope, possibility and a succinct hint of humor as she tears away the facade from humanity. The works shed light on relative issues that we’re all faced with in our easily waywardly led astray lives, and the monotony that makes up our existence.
The Invitation: To Journey Through a Conscious Mind is an ode to the beat generation of poets that carved their names in literary history. Any creative mind will revel in the inspiration that lies between these pages; it’s full of daring attitude, and celebration for the authentic. A unique look on love, that you have to dare to delve within. It harnesses true devotion, with a stark, hair raising element of modern reality.
My Book Awakened a Voice:
Research for my poetry book was a bit different than the research for fiction books. It entailed me figuring out the central theme, and how I would organize a collection. It was like piecing together a puzzle or displaying a collection of art along a wall. It had to be purposeful. It had to flow in ways that was a set-up for the next one to come. I chose five themes. Themes that depict things that I’ve thought or felt.
While researching for the book. I went back to my file of poems that were written in the past. It was a trip down memory lane. I laughed and felt sad all over again. It was amazing to see how mature I was in some ways then, but then to reflect on how much I’ve grown to where I am now.
My life was not hard but it wasn’t easy either. I had experienced disappointment, first heart break, teenage insecurity, and more. I had questions about love, marriage, and relationships that stemmed from having parents that co-parented most of my life. My father was not there in my life until the age of 5. Even after his appearance, even though he was involved in some ways. My mother remained the constant and involved parent.
As I grew older I became stronger and independent. I joined the military at the age of 19. I had my first child at age 20. From Motherhood to Marriage to Divorce. All of it came in the last decade of my life. I have written my emotions, thoughts, and thoughts of others that share similar stories into poetic form. To show that there’s layers to life and in the unexpected you still grow to where you’re supposed to be.
Penning my first book was an introduction. For readers to get a feel for who I am. Who I am not. More important, who I’ll be. The message I aim to represent and find essential to promote. Why writing is my passion, and a work that I take with a privileged regard. It is home. No matter what comes about there will always be a pen and something to write on. As I write on.
