Whispers of the Soul is a collection of narrative poems inspired by Nature, the Japanese gardens at the Morikami Museum in Delray Beach, Florida, the Everglades, musings, and everyday events that had an emotional impact on the author. Reading this book will transport you to these places, heal you, make you laugh, wonder, and cry. It includes a haiku section, and color photographs taken in my own backyard, the Everglades, and the Japanese Gardens at the Morikami Museum in Delray Beach, Florida. A charming companion to ponder on what’s important in life. Written in everyday language so it can be read and enjoyed by all.
PRAISE FOR “WHISPERS OF THE SOUL”:
5.0 out of 5 stars By Curly Sue on September 23, 2014
Where can I start? I am not much of a reader, but received this highly recommended book as a gift. I started reading it, and decided to go slow in order to absorb all the meanings and messages. It is beautifully written and cleverly arranged by different categories. When you read each poem you are magically transported to the author’s thoughts, feelings and places. Some will make you smile, some cry, some inspire. The author also transports you visually as she included some beautiful pictures to go along with a lot of the poems in order to really capture the sentiments. I could relate to a lot of the poems and I think for me and many other people, it will be a great point of reference to go back and revisit the different poems based on what may be going on in your life at any particular time. I recommend this book and it would make a great gift too. I look forward to her next book!
5.0 out of 5 stars To read “Whispers of the Soul” is like taking a journey through a market place of sensitivity
By Pablo Castino. on November 6, 2014
To read “Whispers of the Soul” is like taking a journey through a market place of sensitivity. This collection of approximately forty poems, divided in themes such as sacred places, musings, once upon a time, healing and haiku (Japanese poetry that describes images in just three lines), is written in simple, realistic, and beautiful style. In addition, more than twenty-four color pictures lend a golden touch to the work. “Whispers of the Soul” is a delightful combination of emotions and thoughts, which sometimes takes you back to your own memories… sometimes, stimulates your imagination… but will always pull the strings of your heart.
5.0 out of 5 stars I never really enjoyed reading poetry before since most of my past experiences …
By Roberta Mason on April 1, 2015
I never really enjoyed reading poetry before since most of my past experiences in college required deep analyzing of the hidden meanings behind words of the author.
“Whispers of the Soul” by Alexandra Goodwin was a sheer delight to read. Her thoughts are clear and concise and flowed with gentle rhythm into my mind. Her command of words is impressive and penetrating. She makes you easily see and feel what she is experiencing or writing about. I loved the way she had the individual pieces pigeon-holed into the chapter subjects.
5.0 out of 5 stars Poetry and Photographs
By Haley’s Comments on July 13, 2015
This is a beautiful anthology of poetry separated into five categories, so you can read it through or choose which section you’d like to begin with. You will not be disappointed because Ms. Goodwin has poured her heart and soul into each poem. There are lovely photographs throughout the book that coordinate well with the verses, and it seems that Ms. Goodwin was the photographer for nearly all of them. I hope to see more work from this talented writer.
5.0 out of 5 stars Poetry to meditate
By Regina Diehl on September 19, 2014
I received Whispers of the Soul as a gift. I don’t normally read poetry, however the poems in this book appeal to me for their down to earth language. I find these poems intense, I read them one at a time identifying with the theme and meditating on the message. I love the fact I can relate to the poems. I highly recommend this book.
