Product Description

Product Description

I'm listening,
still listening, Chrysalis
long after the sop of the coin.
I'm listening
still listening
to the refrains from the creek
a mirrored mystique.
I hope you don't mind
but I burned all of the photos.

So begins Chrysalis: Poems of Release and invites the reader on a journey with a modern day heroine through the passionate and treacherous landscape of love. That power is the greatest magic of all. But -- what happens when you lose your soulmate? How does the heart continue living?

Moving, intimate and real, Chrysalis beautifully chronicles the arduous task of returning home to one's self after the loss of a great love. Weaving Tarot, myth and the natural world throughout the narrative, Chrysalis is an enduring testament to the power and eternalness of love.

HASH(0x9fac9dc8) out of 5 stars Releasing words Dec 31 2013

The pain of love is not easy to describe.
Words come and go as thoughts rambling about what can never be again. Some words are soothing, others are confusing, others down right loving.
A journey to profound, prohibited love, sorely loosing it and finally releasing it into the world.

It needs to be said, I love poetry. That being said, it's hard to find good poetry. This is beyond good, it is excellent, insightful and mesmerizing. A journey is shared deeply and honestly. Oh how I wish I could have found something like this 40 years ago! As it was, I had to write my own. The words ellicite a catharsis somehow. This book is a treasure for all who feel deeply and love and lose deeply. Then too, we wake up deeply and refind treasure, and bravely go forward because we can't survive any other way.
Thank you Raven for sharing your soul; my old soul felt your journey and silently sent reverberating cheers your way.
I highly recommend this if you have even a little love of poetry in you. It will speak to you.
