Editorial Reviews

From the Author

I wrote this book over the last 30 years. There are experiences both real and through the majick of Nature and Spirit guides. It is a poetry book but so much more. I would suggest you select verses that appeal to you in the contents listing and read them first, rather then read it like a book.

Each verse tells a story and with descreciptive writing so you can imagine being there. My great hope for "Silhouette of a Soul" is that the readers will be able to laugh and smile while browsing through it and it will lift thier spirits to a higher place. We're all on a journey and I just want to make it more pleasant one for everyone.

I am a writer and mystic who paints with oil, watercolor and acrylic. I read psychic tarot, pratice Reiki and work with crystals in matters of natural healing. I am open and receptive to all ideas that are intended for the greater good of all. That is why I decided to share my visions with you.

I'm a farmer at heart and this book is part of my crop that I've been tending forever...and it's now available for consumption.........Always,

D. Douglas Merrell

In his introduction to "Silhouette of a Soul," author/artist/mystic D. Douglas Merrell writes that he hopes "these words will lift your spirits and make you smile." He also recommends that one read them selectively, a few at a time. This is an excellent suggestion as the poems, although only a few stanzas long and seemingly simple, are worth pondering.

There is invariably a phrase that lingers on the tongue, as when Merrell describes the rainbow around the morning moon as "gently pleasing" and the flight of angels as "the only fragrant flowers in a very dry arrangement." It is in "Lady and Tea," however, when we are introduced to the poet as one who plays "the role of the majickian," that we are able to comprehend more fully the mystic underpinnings of Merrell's verse. With this in mind, the themes of understanding of self in order to act according to one's true will, and the ability to cause change in conformity to that true will, add deeper resonance to this homage to Nature.

Another insight into the poetry can be found in Merrell's art as seen on various web sites. A unique mixture of the primitive and surreal, with a bold, bright palette, and encrusted with imagery borrowed from the artist's familiarity with Reiki, crystals, and psychic tarot, the paintings are alive with both the flight of angels and the fragrance of flowers, and will certainly "lift your spirits and make you smile."

Bookreview.com found this book both intriguing and delightful and recommends it as very good in deed.

Silhouette of a Soul is a wonderful book to pick up and digest in small bites-just one at a time-especially when you are in need of affirmation and consolation. The author's inspiration is grounded in the wisdom and harmony of nature, and mirrors his sense of the divine. I especially enjoyed "Light in Heaven," and pray that the lights of which he speaks do come together someday to form a new star!

The soul silhouetted here is the poet's own, and he bares it for all to see. Each poem is a bit more of an outline of his shadow. I consumed this book in small bites, to prolong the anticipation of what would come next, and I stopped along the way to savor--and occasionally commit to memory--a phrase that resonated long after I put the book down. I will forevermore think of loved ones' birthdays as "..the anniversary of the day Earth was blessed with your presence." Thank you for sending your soul out into the world this way!
