In 2006, I fulfilled a lifelong dream: publishing a book.
That book was a paperback poetry anthology called “How Fate’s Confusion Connects,” in 2006. That was a lifelong dream of mine, to publish a book. Since then, I have penned more poetry, and attending poetry workshops and writing groups for feedback. As with “How Fate’s Confusion Connects,” I experimented with different poetry styles: tanka, senryu, narrative poetry, even ekphrasis. According to Wikipedia, ekphrasis is “a graphic, often dramatic, description of a visual work of art.”
Those poems, and other writings like blog posts explaining my thoughts on writing, are incorporated into my new poetry ebook on Amazon Kindle “A Symphony of Silence.” Here’s an ebook blurb about it:
Compelling, raw, and emotionally charged. These are only three ways of describing this unique collection of poetry. Teresa’s poems push boundaries, tear the soul apart, and sew it back together again with sheer eloquence. Within these eclectic pages, the famous, erratic character of Heathcliff will be revived, you’ll get into the very heart and mind of the writer herself, and, needless to say—you’ll be absolutely inspired. Through these poems, you will surely find yourself—it’s safe to say that there’s a poem in this book for anyone and everyone. Between all the rainy days, heartless exes, and “brewed wisdom,” lies the ultimate poetic experience eagerly waiting to unfold. Join Teresa as she keenly reels you into her vibrantly expressive world.
Updates on “A Symphony of Silence” will be posted as time goes by. Thanks for reading!
