Songs of My Soul is my first poetry collection. I wrote the poems over a period of four years at a very dramatic time in my life: new love, loss and a shifting perception of who I was. A spiritual awakening. I see Songs of My Soul as a universal piece, with verses that everyone can relate to.
An only child, un enfant unique, I’m one of life’s observers who found myself able to write poems during a period of great introspection. I believe we all share a similar human experience, even if we do in vastly different physical bodies.
This is a densely packed anthology with more than sixty poems infused with the honesty, hope and tenderness I still see in the world.
If you want to dip into a poem you feel weary, angry at life, blissfully in love, or at peace with the world, Songs of My Soul is for you! You can order a paperback copy here
There are three sections to delve into: Discovery, Holy Fire and Resurrection. I will write more about the theme of each section in another blog post. It’s the commonality of the themes in Songs of My Soul that binds it together. I invite you to contemplate the key elements of your life in poet form!
Finally, Songs of My Soul is a love story; a gift of love from me to you. I challenged myself to create an illustration as the artwork for the book’s cover: the sunrise, of bold orche tones you hold in your hand has become the visual signature for Songs of My Soul: I call it ‘Daybreak.’
Songs of My Soul paperback is a beautiful book of poetry with an uplifting, soul-enhancing yellow and orange-hued cover.
