Book Review: Like a Seed With Its Singular Purpose

Title: Like a Seed With Its Singular Purpose

Author: Cyril Wong

Call No.: WON

Review: The poems in Cyril Wong’s collection are indeed seeds – each one starts something vibrant and new growing in the world. And though he may write of disaster, it is with triumph: through he may look into the darkest corners, he finds light there that he brings back to fill his poems, and from there, to fill the reader’s mind. These are seeds of light that believe in life – so much sp that they can look at it honestly.
