Writing about experiences that once brought me grief now gives me joy because I now know the God of all comfort brought me through may distressful situations
Bloomington, IN (Vocus) October 8, 2010
Author Dorris F. Dock puts her innermost thoughts to print as she pens Echoes from The Bayou, a fascinating poetry anthology. Available on online bookstores since March 27, 2010, this collection touches on topics from the most mundane to the most ethereal.
In the following pages, readers will hear the expressions of a retired teacher who is trying to reinvent herself through Christ Jesus in a world that she vaguely knew. Dispersed between the poems The Rain and God’s Abiding Love are poems such as Life, In My Despair, The Masses, and Remembering Dad.
The writing of these poems were also very therapeutic in helping the author dispel many doubts and fears that often overwhelmed her during trying times in my life. “Writing about experiences that once brought me grief now gives me joy because I now know the God of all comfort brought me through may distressful situations,” Dock shares.
Through these heartfelt poems that flowed from the tip of the author’s pen, she hopes to inspire her readers as much as they have inspired her through life.
Echoes from The Bayou will be featured at this year’s New York Library Association Book Exhibit in Saratoga Springs, NY on November 2-5, 2010. For more information, log on to Xlibris.com.
