Roots and Tendrils by Heidi Dellaire is a beautiful book of poems dealing with love. She writes about lost loves, heartache and finding herself. The poems show us how the one person we need to love is ourselves before we can love others. Heidi Dellaire uses lovely imagery and rhythm to share her thoughts in thirty-eight poems. Some of them are composed of one sentence in bold, and those poems are like nuggets of wisdom.
I thought that Roots and Tendrils by Heidi Dellaire was a beautiful book of poems. It was like being with a friend that I can relate to, sharing secrets and all. I loved the imagery of her poetry. My favorite one was Squirrel. I definitely felt the same way. Heidi Dellaire's work has a nice rhythm to it, using different types of poems to keep it going. I loved the one-sentence ones; they were like reading gems of wisdom. I was surprised by the one that said, "When you ask the universe for signs, don’t ignore them when they show up." I thought I was the only one who did that, and it was refreshing to see I was wrong.
Roots and Tendrils by Heidi Dellaire is a very heartwarming and thought-provoking collection of poetry, and a very quick read. I was sad when it ended. I think if you are like me and have been trying to find yourself, then I would definitely recommend this work. You will see yourself in this poetry. You may want tissues though, if you are a sentimental person. That is what I loved about this collection. It's a good way to meditate and ponder on your life.
