After a near-death experience at a young age, Shirley Ann Wood began writing poems to document how the event changed her life, and to somehow put words to her newfound and deep belief in God. Over the years, as the collection grew, she began to write about different aspects of her life. Heart & Soul Poems is the end result. Honest, unflinching, and deeply moving, these poems aim to provoke soul-searching and give hope and personal enlightenment to all. Through symbolism, metaphor, and imagery, Wood’s themes center on the most basic of human emotions: love, acceptance, fear, pain, and courage. In “The Circle Game,” Wood explores the circular paths we follow in trying to understand what God has planned for our lives; “The Dreamer” looks at Wood’s alter ego in her dreams. “Golden Bells” celebrates the miracle of Jesus’ birth, and “Hiding Place” reveals the secret spot in our soul where we all go at certain times to conceal ourselves from the world. Wood’s emotional language and strong imagery offers powerful inspiration. Heart & Soul Poems will resonate with you long after the last page is turned.
