Prisms . . . Reflections of Life is a collection of original poetry that expresses the author's diverse personality: from the whimsical "Thanksgiving at Grandma's" and "Lotto Fever," to her emotional reaction to 09/11/01 in "As We Remember-As We Unite" and "Always Here for You." Her philosophy on life is evident in "Stormy Weather" and "The Fire," and her expressions of the heartbreak, helplessness, and pain felt after losing a child resound in "In Memory of Brian" and "Dying from the Inside Out." Some of these poems will make you laugh, others may make you cry, but they will ALL inspire you to . . . "reflect" on life.
