A Sprinkle of Sugar
Urban Poetry and Prose

Overview


This is not your mother’s poetry. In her debut collection of poems, Cynthia Colbert takes you on a journey through her life and the lives of others who have crossed her path. Poignant and honest, her writing is real, raw, unapologetic, and down to earth. Covering topics such as abuse, survival, love, urban living and age, the book is at once heartfelt and relatable.

Amazing Collection of Poems I highly recommend Cynthia Colbert’s book of poems “A Sprinkle Of Sugar”. It touched me on all points of the emotional circle…I laughed, I cried and I sat in quiet contemplation. Through her poems, She invited me into a world for which I know very little. I couldn’t put it down until I was finished. I will read the poems again. Read more

Deeply Insightful This book journeys into the life and mind of a Woman who has fought for life and her place in it. The journey and writing was funny, heartfelt, heart wrenching and heartwarming. I saw the tears, felt the pains, the anger and celebrated the overcoming of the things that could have destroyed this wonderful orchid of Woman. I am inspired by the vision of your rising up and claiming your place in life in spite of all lined up against you. This is your story...I thank you for sharing this small part of you and I celebrate you...please give us more. Read more
