Sally’s Cafe and Bookstore – New on the Shelves – Poetry – The Heart’s Journey Home by Natalie Ducey

Please give a warm welcome for the latest writer to be on the shelves of Sally’s Cafe and Bookstore. Natalie Ducey has been writing since 2104 and her first collection of poetry, The Heart’s Journey Home published in June 2015 has obviously struck a chord with her readers judging by the sentiments expressed in the reviews.

About The Heart’s Journey Home

Poetry for the soul. The Heart’s Journey Home is a collection of 23 poems that capture the essence of the fragility and the resiliency of our hearts – the brilliant beauty of life’s journey. We all love/loved deeply and most likely have been on both sides of goodbye. We know the immobilizing force of grief; we experienced hardships that have brought tears, revelations, and self-discoveries of strength unknown. These trials could easily dishearten us, but instead we choose to be more loving, compassionate, and kind. That is worth celebrating.

The Heart’s Journey Home is a celebration of our heart’s journey through life’s majestic beauty. The collection includes 23 poems titled: Reckless Words, Borrowed Angel, Nobody’s Fool, Silence of the Heart, Love’s Illusion, Fallen Angel, Let’s Dance, Where Does the Love Go, Young Love, Small Town Girl, Winter’s Gift, Destined to Fly, Eternal Love, The War Within, To my Sister on our 40th Birthday, Goodbye without Warning, Old Oak Tree, Names in the Sand, Can’t Let Go, Memories Linger, Caged Bird Sings, Surrender, and Heart’s Journey Home.

Two of the most recent reviews for the collection

The Heart’s Journey Home” is a beautiful book of poetry. I could feel the emotion written through the words. A few poems stood out to me for different reason. Winter’s Gift: “The snowflakes will melt, Join together again, Return to the heavens, Another journey begins…” I loved that idea and imagery. Caged Bird Sing: “You have seen the darkness, Yet, here you are…” made me feel hope for the future.

Heart’s Journey Home: “Believe in yourself and the beauty within, Embrace your future, Have faith, Your heart will guide you again…” was a wonderful message of hope. The Old Oak Tree was a beautiful story and my one of my favorites: “He is no longer a stranger, Every day you stop to say hello, Stories of life and love, Under the shade of the oak…”. If you like poetry with a lot of emotion you will enjoy this collection of poems. I know I did.

Nice poem collection  By Mary Schmidt on March 24, 2017

The potential of the human spirit has always amazed me. Through poetry, I try to capture the essence of the fragility and the resiliency of our hearts – the brilliant beauty of life’s journey.I believe we are connected by similar and relatable experiences. We all love/loved deeply and most likely have been on both sides of goodbye. We know the exquisite and profound beauty of love. We know the immobilizing force of grief and the anguish between letting go and holding on. We know the acute distinction between second chances and new beginnings.Life… It’s majestic and mystifying, and every day we are granted the opportunity to begin again.

Let’s enjoy the Journey!The collection includes 23 poems titled: Reckless Words, Borrowed Angel, Nobody’s Fool, Silence of the Heart, Love’s Illusion, Fallen Angel, Let’s Dance, Where Does the Love Go, Young Love, Small Town Girl, Winter’s Gift, Destined to Fly, Eternal Love, The War Within, To my Sister on our 40th Birthday, Goodbye without Warning, Old Oak Tree, Names in the Sand, Can’t Let Go, Memories Linger, Caged Bird Sings, Surrender, and Heart’s Journey Home.“I found this short collection of poems sentimental and meaningful. Ducey has a true talent for writing poems. Heads Up: When reading on my phone, I found two word errors and one error of two words together without a space, the second word with a capital first letter. However, when reading on my PC no errors are found.”
