Splendid in its Silence

by Jude Neale

Jude Neale with her published in LondonThis collection tells of need and longing, to offer love and be loved, and finally set free. It speaks of daughters and sons, mothers and fathers, and the unbreakable bond of a lover and friend.

For it is true that words are the tools that life fleeting moments to permanence, and clarity from confusion.

Each poem shows an imagistic portait to be looked at through the lens of beauty and the troubling impermanence of time.

I hope that you, the reader, will dip into each poem with a sense of renewal and light.
