Out of nowhere.. in the only, unlikely way possible there he was, changing everything...
“I have read a lot of poems in my time, especially since a young age but never have I ever been so provoked by the ones in Emerald Heart, as I felt they really did capture love.” - Aimee Ann, Red Headed Book Lover
'Are you a fan of romance and all things romantic? I never was. Not because I wasn't into love or didn't know it, I had been in a long-lasting, very loving relationship with a great man. Really down to earth, I just didn't have a romantic bone in my body. Then one day, single but not looking for or even open to anything new, a wonderful guy suddenly changed that and more. He is the reason and inspiration for this authentic book that covers different layers and aspects of an intense, mind-blowing journey of love I had no choice but to be on.'
Through an unexpected and unusual connection the author finds herself on a road of self discovery unlike ever before, the rhythmic poems ultimately a way for her to express what can't be put into words.
*** While published initially with additional information, it's now revised to just the poems in a simpler layout (with only a – shorter – preface and afterword) ***
“today I'm longing for you
for your strong and loving embrace
soft caresses, your gaze
gently touching my face
your experiences reflected in mine
like mirrors we share the same
how do I explain to you
what goes beyond the human mind
and what through you, I became”
sample of 'Soul Song'
beyond the earthly realms, space & time
a connection precious & kind
& countless signs
challenging to describe
magnetically pulled together
the love we share
impossible to deny"
'A Perfect Summary'
in the process becoming the best versions of us
sharing our gifts with the world
the destiny of this amazing journey
and the essence of life it holds
to experience love, in its purest form
between you, me and all that is
while loving ourselves, just as we are:
perfect and of infinite bliss
the way we've always been
obscured by illusions and our earthly minds
our true nature that of love and grace
invisible to the human eye
beautiful, powerful, complete
compassionate and kind
all that and more is what we truly are
what we came here to find

*** Note regarding 'print replica'. It is indeed the same content and overall page-look as the paperback, except in the number of pages and numbering. Since the lay-out for the paperback that made the most sense for a physical book was not necessary or beneficial for the e-book (for example blank or title left pages), this has been adjusted for a better digital reading experience. ***
