About the Book:

Gathering Pearls is a collection of cultured poems abounding with grace. A delicate thread of wisdom and sensitivity permeates Susan Maree's poetry. Gathering Pearls will take you to your soul, make you weep, and make you smile.
The poet's words emanate from the depth of her soul, as she often states that her poems are "whispers from God."

The author confesses that for her, "writing poetry creates order out of chaos and transforms obstacles into blessings."

Readers may also look forward to a humorous book of poetry for children to be published in the future. For now, as Susan makes her literary debut, it is her greatest aspiration that you enjoy and appreciate Gathering Pearls.

Universal Muse

She is light
in dark, mysterious spaces,
integrity in immoral places .
She's hope
in spite of uncertainty,
mercy for those with misery.
She's an idealist
in a realm of broken dreams,
conscious of her adversary's schemes.
She's morality
displayed for all to see,
enlightenment to all who wish to be.
She's time,
yesterday, today, tomorrow,
ecstasy within a world of sorrow.
She's creation
from beginning to the end,
solitude yet society's boisterous friend.
She's love in a world of sin and hate.
She's harmony;
this, the poet's fate.
