to take you on a journey from darkness into the light. I have seen
the shadows that haunt me and the glorious light that enveloped me
in love. I have found that as long as I look into the light of my
Father, the shadows are behind me. Only when I look into the face
of them and dwell there do I have the propensity to be swallowed
I have learned that they are harmless to me as long as I do not
engage. It's easy to become depressed or sad and let them swallow
you whole, like a cold drink of water on a hot day in hell. My
poetry has always been cathartic for me and I know it will be for
you. The poetry and prose in this book are a reflection of my
journey of stepping in and out of the light. Finally to be embraced
by love, acceptance of self and more importantly to love all of
God's creation and myself.
It was not an easy road but I would not have changed it for the
world. I know the poems in this book will make you laugh, cry,
feel love and experience righteous indignation at times. It has been
an honor to share my words again and I thank you in advance for
Blessings of love & peace,
The atmosphere, a caliginous cast,
a foreboding feel.
The prophecy still at work from times past,
so I could not heal.
Out of the nocturnal ages it seems,
sac-like organs heave.
Mercurial canals of my mind stream,
and then I did breathe.
Out of the fog and into the clearing,
shards of light met me.
Green grass and flowers started appearing,
seeds of life to be.
Nourishing my starving spirit and soul,
I ate them all up.
Soft illumination did make me whole,
I drank from His cup.
His promise to me is eternal
where there is no grief.
Providence is not accidental,
my trust is not brief.

Passages book Review by James Lee Jobe
In an era when popular poetry is often obscure for the sake of
obscurity, the poems of Janet P. Caldwell are refreshing for their
clarity and for the poet's clear vision. This is poetry that not only
reads well on the page, but sounds powerful when read aloud. And
the subject matter? A life examined with a poet's eye and recorded
with honesty and intensity. Ms. Caldwell's poems can be bone
lean, yet full of the meat of living, full of the flavor of being a
human being. This is a collection of poems by a writer at the height
of her powers of observation, and defining her life and the world

Passages book Review by Teresa E. Gallion PHD
Janet Caldwell bares her soul raw and unpretentious taking us
through the cycles of her life. We walk with her through the scars
of abuse, the roller coaster of love, pain, loss and relationships, the
unconditional love discovered in childbirth. In the end we must
respect her courage as she kneels in forgiveness ready to take the
next step on her journey. A testament to the human spirit as it rises
from darkness into the light of awakening. After walking with
Janet you end at the door of sustenance feeling full.

Passages book review by, William S. Peters, Sr.
As a Writer, Poet and Publisher, I am awed by the “Raw Realities”
Janet is able to capture in her Poetic expressions. She has a very
Unique Voice of her own while at the same time being able to
personify that of so many who perhaps can not put into words their
Emotions, Thoughts and Spiritual Intuitions. I am so honored to
call her “Friend”. Her personal journey as captured in her poems
are quite profound and will evoke a deep stirring in any soul who
would take the time to read and contemplate the depths and
insights she chooses to share. We are blessed.
