Miriam’s Book Review – Passages and Paths – A Journey of Life through Poetry by Dorinda Duclos
What Amazon Says
In ‘A Journey of Life through Poetry’, Dorinda invites you to join her, as the wonder and awe of the Earth inspires her, bringing her visions to you through her poetry. Experience the setting sun, share in the challenges and victories of life, await the new day, and find yourself lost in the lush forest trees, as you join her on her journey, through Passages and Paths.
Passages and Paths – A Journey of Life through Poetry is a collection of poetry filled with pleasant rhymes and lyrics. The author describes her love in nature, shares her views of heartache, intimate love relationship, a mother’s love, a child hidden in a box watching the parents argue, and her fantasy of escaping to a better place with no trace.
One of my favorite poems was “Surrender My Soul”:
“Brighten the night, with light from above
Awaken the ground, with your undying love
Your spirit ignites the souls in the sky
Dancing about, as they gracefully fly
Images, illuminating the darkness within
Creating their music, with a lyrical spin
Casting their wonder, in a spiritual glow
From Heaven above, to the Earth down below
Singing so sweetly, their songs, so tender
As my heart finds peace, my soul, surrender”
Dorinda Creates touching images in the common experiences. Readers will resonate the expression in these poems.
