TAURANGA, New Zealand – Author Carley Short believes that words can tear and destroy but they can also build up and give strength. Through her lyrical compositions compiled in her new book, Short chooses to empower and encourage readers by sharing them her very own “Signatures of the Heart” (published by Xlibris NZ).

“It’s what we chose to do with words is the decision we make,” Short imparts, “Personally, I love to see hope, faith and love well up in the recipient and laughter and joy will follow. You need to see the funny side of life because it’s hilarious and it brings such healing.”

In this candid yet soulful and emotional composition of poems from the heart, she invites readers to look at the bright side of life in every situation. By giving and reflecting on life’s curves, its ups and down, she enables readers to take ordinary, everyday things and turn them into inspirations.

Short does not want anyone to grovel in the mud, run through sharp thistles and squeeze through the thorny hedges of life; thus she shares her encouraging pieces to uplift the souls of the weary and bring smiles and laughter to the discouraged. “Signatures of the Heart” serves as a soothing salve for anyone who seeks for a reprieve from life’s trials.
