Review from Washington Independent Review of Books
“What strikes me most are the emotional variations Colson can imagine. I like especially the poems that interweave the real and the surreal in conversation. Common threads throughout are love of family, grief, and memory, but these are no ordinary verses: Check the way the poet enters each poem differently, how he uses the page. And notice his range of subjects, interests, and desires. Colson’s is an infectious and reflective voice at poetry’s fine table.”
Review from Savvy Verse & Wit “Said Through Glass by Jona Colson speaks and readers must listen, but more than that they must interact with the lines and stanzas on the page — becoming a second observer. Readers will see through this window unique ways to look at the ordinary — from honey to an orange — and examine loss, grief, and change in a way that is not only sad, but beautiful.
