by Carliis G. Rodriguez
With her evocative words and smooth pentameter, Carlis G. Rodriguez’s Poetry to Caress the Soul does just that, as well as warming the heart, pleasing the eyes, and soothing the mind.
She touches on a plethora of subjects, including faith and family in “Strong Roots,” “Grandma’s Quilt,” and “I’m Nothing without His Music;” love lost and found in “Second Chance” and Make Me Believe;” and the priceless value of friendship in “Can I Call You Friend.” Her everyday experiences strike new chords in her readers’ hearts as she shares her dismay at the path of destruction society seems to have chosen in “Society’s Lost,” Baby Doe,” and “Delicate Eyes:” then she celebrates the miracle of life in “Sugar Dreams,” “Celebrate Your Living,” and Uplifting Rainbow.”
Timeless, joyful, cautioning, and heartfelt, Poetry to Caress the Soul will reach out and touch you, heart, soul, and mind.
