Healing Words by Terri Kelley is a beautiful collection of poetry that handles diverse emotions in everyday lives. The author's expressions in verse will give readers a better understanding of topics like happiness, joy, loss, death, friendship, breakup, relationships, divorce, health, and more. Each poem in the book has its own way of reaching out to readers with its words of joy and encouragement. The simple black and white illustrations enhance the effect and quality of the words. This inspirational collection will entertain readers with its simplicity and elegance in style and presentation.
This collection is not only about human emotions but it also speaks about the bond between humans and pets. 'Ball of Fur' is one such poem which speaks about the love between dogs and humans. The poem 'Heartache' is a heart wrenching poem that will bring a few tears to the eyes of readers. Each poem strikes a chord because of its connection with the emotions which are relevant. The simplicity of words and stark images that accompany each poem make the collection a comforting read.
I would recommend this collection to every reader, mainly because of the topics that the author has chosen. All are relevant themes which are easily relatable to readers. The depth, the emotions, and the understanding by the poet on these topics elevate the tone of the poems. Definitely a collection that all readers will enjoy.
