From the Heart
by Cathaleen Latimer
Cathaleen Latimer is a self-styled poet who brings to her verse insights and preoccupations of everyday life from her own experiences and observations, signaling a feeling of the temporal. It is written in a minimalist style in order to bring a direct message to the reader; a written snapshot that expresses a specific feeling or moment in time.
In this anthology, the themes of family, life and eternity are expressed in a concentrated style that evokes self-introspection.About the Author
