The Growth of a Girl to the Wisdom of a Woman
Stephanie Olivia Bel, author
There are basically three sections of this book: youth / first love, nature, and wisdom. I have always turned to paper and pen when excited, in wonder, or distressed. I have found that writing down the obtrusive thoughts frees the mind. I have chosen poetry as the venue. Hopefully, you too can relate. I hope that you may glean some insight into yourself and find peace, joy, and some wisdom. I may add that some of the poetry is simple and obvious. Others need to be read more than once. As in a painting, the observer gets out of it what relates to her. So too in poetry. You may read a poem and feel something entirely different from why I wrote it. That is just fine. My purpose was personal. Your purpose could be that the poem stimulates a remembrance of a time in your life that can be relived. Enjoy.
