Wednesday, June 27, 2012 is the Launch Date for my 5th book, Bring Poetry to Heart.  I have dedicated this book to my wonderful husband Mike who helped me open my heart to the infinite possibilities in life. We celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary in October. Below are some wonderful endorsements of the book as well as a poem from the book.

Always remember to let your heart be open to the magnificence that surrounds you!

“Carol Calkins has a gift with words in expressing true feelings of love, loss, and life.  I felt that many of these poems were written for me.” – Lorena Fisher, Nordicg Designs

“Carol Calkins has done it again! Another book of poetry from her heart to your heart. She eloquently writes to capture the essence of love and loss. Bring Poetry to Heart is another winner.”  – Lisa Shultz, Author and Coach, www.LisaJShultz.com

“Again Carol Calkins has channeled her own love and light into another fantastic poetry book.  I love her poem from 1988 in her own handwriting as an introduction to this thoughtful collection that fits love in every form. Congratulations Carol for following your heart and thanks for sharing your gifts with the world.” – Betsy Wiersma, Founder CampExperience™

“I showed the two poems Carol wrote, Stand by Your Side and Woman of Grace, to my wife, my sister and father.  We all loved them and felt that they reflect thoughts we have of my mother.  The first poem really reflects the pain that is felt as they are passing away and the second is a great eulogy. Thank you so much for sharing these with us, they are beautiful remembrances of my mom.” – David Turnquist, Associate Vice Chancellor for Facilities Management, University of Colorado Denver | Anschutz Medical Campus

Flowering Heart

Flowering Heart
May seem small at the start
Brilliance and light
Are just out of sight

As it grows and expands
Like an ornamental fan
Blooming full with radiance
Splendor bright with happiness

Beauty deep within
Seen by all around
Intensity spreads out
Love expresses as it surrounds

Connection with life is clear
Conveys to those who are near
Touches each being a gentle swirl
Communicates glory of the world

Flowering Heart
May seem small at the start
Brilliance and light
Are just out of sight
