There are shadows that reside in every writer's soul. Are you afraid of the dark? Shadows of the Soul is a poetry chapbook full of intense, raw emotion.

Shadows of the Soul

SHADOWS OF THE SOUL is a collection of poems that explores the ebb and flow of human life with all its joys, sorrows, surprises and triumphs. Written during a dark and transformative period of Bev Walton-Porter's life, just prior to and after the death of her first husband, this collection addresses the raw and exposed core of existence that pulses beneath the surface of every human being.


Excerpt

"The world breaks everyone and afterward
many are strong at the broken places."
--Ernest Hemingway

As Hemingway noted so poignantly, the world does not protect anyone from experiencing the pain of living. While we cannot be buffered from the pain that is inherent in the act of living, we are capable of discovering tools that enable us to cope more successfully. It is through the tools known as poetry and prose that I have been able to deal with circumstances in my life that could have easily driven an average human being into the cave of hopelessness and despair. Words are the magickal elements that, when combined together, yield not only a deep and abiding comfort but an invisible shield of protection, as well. When all else falls away and I am left seemingly alone and barren, it has always been words that have lifted my soul and carried it to a place of understanding and peace.
