Poetry to Live By: Messages From the Heart is a collection of inspirational poetry by Teresa Dye.
Art is the imitation of life, and poetry, they say, is the language of the imagination and the passions. In the past, we have featured many poetry books. Some of them are about faith and devotion. Some are about t their personal struggles and spiritual journey. We have also featured poetry celebrating womanhood, motherhood, and overcoming dark pasts. No matter what theme or narrative, poetry books always seem to relate to us simply because they reflect the truth, values, inspiration, hopes, and even struggles. Today, we will celebrate a new poetry book that we think is an excellent addition to our collection of remarkable masterpieces. Today, ReadersMagnet features Poetry to Live By: Messages From the Heart by Teresa Dye.
