I found the stanzas set down by versifier McColley to be tender, having an understated quality and filled with a joy of life.

Victoria L McColley’s Orchards of Deliverance The Descrying Soul of Love is a collection of delicate, ethereal, fresh, poetry set down by a poetess having a tender heart and tender voice.

Opening with a gentle thought to ’Embrace the blessing of Love’s Peaceful Unison Through Forgiveness & Devotional Visions of Emotional Wealth…’ bard McColley presents more than 100 of her works beginning with ‘Love is a purity of Silence’ with works centering around The petals of life in bloom.

Here we find beauty ‘Beneath the Velvet’ with indigo prisms; beneath this velvet sky, a sensual moment in ‘Your Kiss’ with Intimate throne of passion Unveiled within your kiss and the poignant ‘Authentic Life’ Image of a broken mirror; Where no illusion lay… The shards of reflective truths; Are the slivers of heartened dismay.

‘Offering silence within tenderness: Love touches without words’ is found in the ‘Spectral Soul’ and serenity embraces the portals of creative semblance.

Other titles include Voice of Serenity, Zephyr of Midnight, Within the Unity, Summits of Love, Love’s Tide and I Chased Love; all embracing the themes of caring, gentleness and words from the soul.

Desires, Affection, Passions Moon and Love’s Voice continue the petals of gentle love and affection. Closing out the work is the reflective I Chased Love in which the writer tells of chasing after love only to realize that love had actually come to her.

‘You are a beautiful petal in the garden of love, A glorious blossom; the Effloresce of love’ sums up the work nicely.

Orchards of Deliverance is a work of nearly 200 pages including a table of contents, the odes themselves and an index.

I found the stanzas set down by versifier McColley to be tender, having an understated quality and filled with a joy of life. The use of lilies as graphics between the various pages filled with delicate canto continues the sense of a gentle heart and thought. I like the use of black and white photos; they lend an airy feel which colors might overpower in their luminosity.

I enjoyed reading Orchards of Deliverance. McColley is a talented lyricist who sets down free verse flowing from an inspired heart to carrying the reader toward philosophy of life, compassion and affection.

Happy to recommend Victoria L McColley’s Orchards of Deliverance The Descrying Soul of Love for those who enjoy kindhearted verse one petal at a time.
