Sally’s Cafe and Bookstore – New book on the Shelves – Songs of Heartstrings : Poems of Gratitude and Beatitude by Miriam Hurdle.

Delighted to welcome a new author to the cafe and bookstore with her debut collection of poetry launched yesterday….. Songs of the Heartstrings: Poems of Gratitude and Beatitude by Miriam Hurdle.

About  Songs of Heartstrings

Human being has the willpower to travel through an exhausting journey, win a tough battle, and heal a deep wound. Strength from hope keeps us going until the light at the end of the tunnel is in sight and striving until the storm is over.

This poetic memoir comprises themes ranging from the suffering through an undesirable relationship, surviving an aggressive cancer, to the happiness in true love, the joy of parenthood, and gratefulness toward the Maker. Hurdle reveals the honest self-talk and reflects a heart filled with optimism, faith and trust. She illustrates the poems with her beautiful photos and paintings.

An early review for the collection

The restorative power of nature and the infinite love of our Maker resound in Hurdle’s poetry as she explores themes ranging from love, loneliness, loss and trauma to healing, grace, forgiveness and hope. “Songs of the Heartstrings” is a powerful poetic memoir.

About Miriam Hurdle

Miriam Hurdle is a multi-genre writer. She writes poetry, flash fiction, and short stories. Her poems are included in Letters to Gaia, Whispers and Echoes Issue 2, Whispers and Echoes Issue 3, and Outcast and More Words.

Music has rooted in her life. Being a soloist as a teenager led her to taking voice lessons and to have ongoing singing engagements. She continues to sing soprano in choral groups. Lyrics have a major influence in the natural flow of her melodic writing. She writes memoir in the form of poetry.

Along with her brother, she took photos when the films were black and white. Photography is still her enjoyable hobby. Drawing and painting were fun activities as a child. Her favorite was to draw a Japanese girl with big eyes, long hair, small lips and chin. She resumed drawing and watercolor painting several years ago. In her poetry collection, photos and paintings are included to illustrate the poems.

She earned a Doctorate of Education from the University of La Verne in California. After two years of rehabilitation counseling, fifteen years of public school teaching and ten years in school district administration, she retired and enjoys life with her husband in southern California.

  1. Congratulations, Miriam, and great to see your collection showcased on Sally’s wonderful site. I didn’t realise you were a singer – I am also a soprano that have to be surrounded by dozens of others before I dare open my mouth! – so your title is perfect. Wishing you every success.

    • Thank you so much, Anne. It’s wonderful to meet another musician. I have two performance this Christmas, one is Messiah and the other one is a smaller choir concert. I made one post about the first solo performance. My whole body was trembling until the moment I stood on the stage making eye contact with familiar faces. I’m getting used to it now. Thank you for your kind wishes. I must watch your video. I’ll made video of poetry reading and post on YouTube later.
