A collection of poetry about life, loss and love. It is dedicated to all those who inspired and provided the opportunity and challenge to always reach for the highest and brightest star.
Poetry is all about the expression of the inner soul. Each poem put to pen in this collection reflects inner feelings of life's experiences from observation of others. From the start to the finished creation, poetry gives license to profound and powerful communication.
Poetry is the pathway to artistic expression. It is exciting to discover the genre of the poem along with the style, line, sound, and rhythms that evolve. It is a challenge to find the shortest method possible of using powerful words to express serious thoughts.
Whether a poem is about love, humor, tragedy, inspiration, or sharing general life experiences, the results are what I call poetry in Motion.
I hoe you enjoy the collection of poems within Echoes of the Mind.
