This week on Streets Ahead it’s the turn of Dorinda  Duclos and her book of poetry ‘A Journey of Life Through Poetry’.

In ‘A Journey of Life through Poetry’, Dorinda invites you to join her, as the wonder and awe of the Earth inspires her, bringing her visions to you through her poetry. Experience the setting sun, share in the challenges and victories of life, await the new day, and find yourself lost in the lush forest trees, as you join her on her journey, through Passages and Paths.

Passages and Paths, a journey of life through poetry is a delightful collection of poems about nature and love. Through her beautifully descriptive nature poetry, the poet expresses her amazement at, and delight in, the natural world around her. Two of the lovely descriptive phrases I enjoyed in this book are “Spun in golden, silken threads,” and “Seductive eyes and lips of red” both taken from the poem, Swept Away in Golden Splendour”.

Dorinda takes ordinary, everyday sights and shares the hidden beauty and intricacy of our amazing world.

There are a number of poems about enjoyment, love, desire and passion in this book too. One of my favourites was Without a Care:

“She reads aloud without a care

Unafraid that I am there

I have to wonder what she sees

When at last she looks at me

Continuing on with her journey in mind

She speaks of a forest, so soft and so kind

Of places that sparkle in emerald green

Of creatures she’s never really seen

Of beauty concealed in faraway lands

All this from a book

That she holds in her hands

Still she sits here before me

Enrapt in the story

As she utters the words

I can’t help but adore thee.”

Dorinda is a talented poet and her poems are certain to delight your soul.
