Expression’s Embrace Volume 1: From Roses to Sparrows
(from the author: “From Roses to Sparrows is a book of poetry for teens, and both young and older adults, to be absorbed in the communication between older women, Roses, and young ladies, Sparrows. The expressions embrace the moments in life many women have journeyed, while also encouraging the understanding of one another to incite love and support. “We, each of us, are somebody’s Rose and/or Sparrow…”)
Dedicated to the Queens & Princesses, the integral communication between us as women and young ladies… I wrote this collection of poetry to give our blooming youth of little women something to ponder upon during their life’s journeys, as well as to speak to mature women to embrace the treasured privilege we have in teaching them. Whether you will need to laugh, to cry, to smile or to vent, I hope that there is something each of you can draw upon, relate to, become comforted by, or to even be inspired. I was asked, “Why did you choose the title: From Roses to Sparrows?” Well…roses have always been my favorite blossom, but the title didn’t really come into fruition until one of my “little sisters” started to call me Rose. She said it matched my mothering, nurturing and sweet side. This same “little sister” I had earlier nicknamed Sparrow. So this book, these expressions, stems from a friendship between a Rose and a Sparrow. I have many “little sisters” that I pray for on a daily basis to embrace the window of maturity and become beautiful women, spiritual women, and respected women. I know life lands us in many puddles and takes us through different courses, but I don’t want you to ever give up on yourselves, but especially and more importantly…on life. We, each of us, are all someone’s Rose and/or Sparrow and, at times, I feel we need to be reminded of such.
