As human-beings, we often wonder at the true meaning of life, and as our years advance, we may contemplate deeply on the subject. POETRY out of the BOX is the result of such contemplation and expresses the myriad of emotions experienced by many as they navigate the unknown terrain of their lives.
Interspersed with enchanting interludes of love, romance, fantasy, fiction and fun, the theme of self-discovery is threaded throughout the book. Spiritually enriching, steeped in emotion, and quietly sensual and seductively appealing, POETRY out of the BOX attempts to capture the true essence of the human experience.
The poems are written in a variety of styles and are presented in a meaningful and entertaining manner. In essence, they are a personal expression of love and self-healing, and reflect a deep connection to the natural world and beyond. In some instances, human sensuality is drawn upon as an emotional expression of this connection.
Profoundly engaging, the poems in this book aim to touch the hearts and souls of all who are willing to read with an open heart and mind.
About the Author
Maureen is a new author and refers to herself as an accidental poet after writing her first poem quite unintentionally. As more poems followed, she found that writing in verse proved to be both a powerful, self-defining experience and a true consolatory outlet for her thoughts and emotions. The inspiration for Maureen's poetry is drawn primarily from her personal perspective on life as experienced through her perceived connection to the universe and her love of the natural environment. Maureen lives with her husband on the north-west coast of Tasmania, an island state of mainland Australia, where they have happily called home for several years. Many of Maureen's poems are inspired by the natural beauty of this small, pristine island and her emotional connection to it. One such poem is the anthropomorphic love poem, 'Soul Mate.' Also an avid tai chi practitioner, this profound, healing art has been Maureen's mainstay in life for many years. She enjoys sharing her knowledge and expertise through teaching within the local community.
