- New author Shaheewa Jarrett Gelin provides a fresh and authentic perspective in her collection of poems recounting a lifetime of reflection on love -
(BLACK PR WIRE) – Ft. Lauderdale, FL – April 8, 2013 – Shaheewa Jarrett Gelin discovered her love for writing at an early age. She soon began transcribing her own personal truths, experiences, and observations into poetry and has not stopped since.
Her debut release, Love’s Mental Imprints: Hope, Speak, Dream, Listen is a collection of poems that will take the reader on a journey of emotions, provoke personal introspection, and generate a curiosity about life’s many ups and downs.
“When you can look back, bathed in the emotions of the moment, and realize that you made it to the other side, then you know that you can get through anything, including life’s heartaches because you understand that you had some good times too,” shared Shaheewa. “Poetry is a celebration of life and helps me fill in the gaps when verbal communication seems to fail.”
Love’s Mental Imprints: Speak, Hope, Dream, Listen (ISBN 978-1-4787-1214-5) is available online at www.amazon.com, www.barnesandnoble.com, and www.theblacktye.com for $9.95.
