About the Book

Eloquent and original, this album of stanzas and verses shimmers and resonates with soulful, poetic song. Sorrow and tears ripple through the heart of the lyrics, yet the buoyancy of beauty, solace and peace, contemplative hope, pleasure, joy, and keen insight glisten like brilliant stars against a dark-filled sky.

The fabric of the poems is emotionally exuberant as well as thoughtfully creative and imaginative.

About the Author

Maria Hilda Piñon is a practicing licensed psychotherapist, life coach and spiritual director. She has a background in nursing, television production and writing with a Master’s degree in Counseling Psychology. With over thirty years of varied experiences in the ministerial professions, grief and loss have been tightly interwoven into the fabric of this tapestry. “This history repeatedly reveals a central poignant theme: loss and the accompanying emotional grief are inevitable when we love. Yet, the challenging experiences offer illuminations that enrich, guide and strengthen our life if we have the courage to embark on the path rather than resist or avoid it.” She currently resides in San Antonio, Texas. Other publications include The Willows of Corona, a novel.
