Washington, DC -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/16/2014 -- Author and poet Sandradene Walters is releasing her second book of poetry, The Passages of Love, and it promises to be an even more beautiful look at the many phases and types of love than her last volume. Blue Artists will release the book on October 1, 2014, on amazon.com, sandradenewalters.com, and through popular retailers like Barnes and Noble.
Walters has been writing poetry all her life but has only recently started to collect and publish her poems. A member of several poetry groups in Washington, D.C., Walters writes poetry that has been described as "sensual" and "uplifting" dealing with all levels, phases and ages of physical and emotional connection. Her poetry has been noted to appeal to wide range of age groups because of its timeless message.
Her first poetry volume, Unspoken Words, explored the seasons of love through sensual and thoughtful poems. The poems in The Passages of Love chronicle the poet's search for meaning in love and her own expression of inner feelings. She says, "Have you ever sat down and just watched a bird take flight and in secret wished that that was you? Well I've sat, looked and wished and now, after I've reconnected with my soul, I'm flying high with the release of my new book. I want my readers to not only travel as they read, but to rediscover their own indescribable passion for life and love."
Some of the poems are not for the faint of heart, as many contain explicit renderings of sexual love. However, they also span a range of topics from the passionate to the sublime and explore a depth of feeling and sensuality rarely seen in modern poetry. The poet makes incredible connections between the love act and other themes that show her flexibility and versatility. For example, in "Open Door," the poet compares her body to a home that allows her lover to enter and find sanctuary. Another poem, "Run Free Love," offers a deep and compassionate look at emotional release, eschewing raw sensuality for a more emotional connection that allows a lover to run free while still being intimately connected. "Joy and Pain," a more mature poem, explores the wide range of feelings that are often experienced by older lovers or those who have been in love for may years.
