With a heart of full of emotions, author Aytaç Aydoğan Edwards brings to bookshelves her poetic prowess as she marshals poems that will touch the heart and move the soul. “Between Two Worlds,” her book of poetry released through Xlibris, explores the many facets of life as captured by melodic words.
Edwards’ poetry is influenced by Islamic Sufi and Buddhist teachings. Her poems are meditations on human life’s connectedness with nature. In this book, she shares her reflections on aspects of her life and her thoughts on death. The poem “Silence” talks about the beauty that could be felt in listening to the sound of stillness. “Seeking God” is a moving piece that exudes how man could never be able to find the Almighty through earthly wonders; he should delve deeper within his spiritual being. Lighthearted yet insightful, “Books” tells about how good books amazingly linger in one’s head or heart. “Sesame Seeds”, written as dark and melancholic, is one man’s expression of longing for a loved one that has passed away.
With each verse seamlessly crafted and each line poignantly written, “Between Two Worlds” takes readers to the inner corners of one’s heart and soul. Through each beautiful piece, readers will learn to see the beauty of nature, the essence of faith, and the bliss of living.
This book will be featured at the 2012 New York State Reading Association Book Exhibit in Saratoga Springs, New York, on April 3-5, 2012. For more information on this book, interested parties may log on to http://www.Xlibris.com.
