he potential of the human spirit has always amazed me. Through poetry, I try to capture the essence of the fragility and the resiliency of our hearts; the brilliant beauty of life’s journey. We all love/loved deeply and most likely have been on both sides of goodbye. We know the exquisite and profound beauty of love. We know the immobilizing force of grief and the anguish between letting go and holding on. We know the acute distinction between second chances and new beginnings.Life…It’s majestic and mystifying, and every day we are granted the opportunity to begin again. Let’s enjoy the Journey!The Heart’s Journey Home is a celebration of our heart’s journey through life’s majestic beauty. The collection includes 23 poems titled: Reckless Words, Borrowed Angel, Nobody’s Fool, Silence of the Heart, Love’s Illusion, Fallen Angel, Let’s Dance, Where Does the Love Go, Young Love, Small Town Girl, Winter’s Gift, Destined to Fly, Eternal Love, The War Within, To my Sister on our 40th Birthday, Goodbye without Warning, Old Oak Tree, Names in the Sand, Can’t Let Go, Memories Linger, Caged Bird Sings, Surrender, and Heart’s Journey Home.
Review: My favourite poems from this collection are, Winter’s Gift, and Old Oak Tree. For me they had greater meaning and depth than the rest. However, I don’t doubt others will find different poems from this work equally touching depending on one’s own journey of the heart.
Ducey’s poetry has a pleasant rhythm and easy flow making it quite memorable in a comfortable way.
