Gianina Sipitca conveys her love for poetry and photography in “Poetry In Color”

Prepare to be blown away by the author’s striking poetry and alluring photography.


”The book demonstrates how photography inspires poetry and vice versa”.

Gianina Sipitca published “Poetry In Color” Xlibris; 2013), a stunning collection of free verse poems and original photos.
Sipitca got the idea of publishing “Poetry in Color” in 2012 while downloading some vacation photos. There are 33 poems in all, five of which are Christmas-themed poems, and the pictures are ‘enhanced’ with free software for creating cartoons to “make the quality more uniform throughout the book.”
Most of the poems were written directly in English, with the exception of “If I Could,” which is translated from Romanian. The poem describes her pain of having lost her brother, who supposedly disappeared in an air crash while in military school. The ending of the poem tells of a promise she makes to him that she will live her life in such a way so that he could expect her in Heaven when the time will come.
Other poems, such as “The Way You Are” and “Messiah” are acrostic poems. “Grandma’s House” and “I remember” are inspired by childhood memories of her grandmother, the house she raised her in, and of her mother asking her a secret question. The picture accompanying the former poem is the actual house of her grandmother, in her hometown of Bacau, Romania while the latter poem is printed next to a suggestive memory Sipitca has of Isola Madre on Lago Maggiore in Italy.
Several poems are fictional in nature, such as “I Wonder” where an almost obsessive behavior inspired the metaphor “sweet pretending thought” which describes the cold as ice object of affection. The poem was inspired by Sipitca’s infatuation of a long-ago acquaintance with Julio Iglesias. The accompanying picture shows warm and vibrant apple bloom, covered in white, icy snow, which she took in May 2012.
Pictures accompanying poems like “Endurance” are of the aqueduct of Pont du Gare in France, and an ancient Arc de Triomphe, while the one across from “Hm…Hm Good” is from Lake Geneva at Montreux, Switzerland. 
Sometimes, she composed her fictional love poems by imagining the narrator to be a woman’s anguish, and at other times, as in “If I may”, she imagines an infatuated male minstrel. “Food loving fun” was written early in the morning, while she wondered what to have for breakfast at that time. The poem boasts openly that “…Just thinking of food, I have fun!” 
Sipitca likes to have fun with words and metaphors, as with the poem “My Childish Religion” which tells about her early life spiritual traditions.
