Great reflection and transformation come with repetitive love and loss. We learn to uncover who we are in the highs of falling in love and the lows of pain and heartbreak. In Roots and Tendrils, self-discovery is depicted with imagery inspired by sleepless nights and a heart that is wide open that only those who have loved and been loved will truly understand.
A lyric and insightful collection of poetry about the punishing love encounters that lead to growth and ultimately self-love. If you've ever felt the confusion of being catapulted from one relationship to another in a cycle of sadness, hope, and disbelief, then you understand the "Continuous peeling and healing of a wound that is deep." In her debut collection of poetry, Roots and Tendrils, Heidi Dellaire navigates the intimate journey of heartbreak and self-discovery. The journey assembles a decade of transitory love encounters following the end of a significant long-term relationship. Each poem, musing and affirmation advances the reader through love affairs both searing and exhilarating in their intensity. You'll meet the narcissist, the ghoster and the gas-lighter. You'll travel to the ocean, visit a cave, be ready for combat and soar through the mist. Then you will step from pain into the light of love where you too, will grow. Dellaire is a practitioner of several alternative healing modalities and is the founder of LoveWideOpen.com.
