Poetry without fear and full of truth

by Tannia E. Ortiz-Lopes on 4/1/2008

In his book, “Love's Journey Home,” author Lee Hedstrom shares with us the aches and pains of his journey home. Life experiences served as nourishment to his thirsty and wounded soul and through this awakening he gathered the strength to reach his final destination: Self-discovery. He chose the freedom of poetry to tell us his story. All poems are woven together in these two stories. The first story carries the theme of the Biblical prodigal son. The second one describes events of his daily life and tell us how he faced them with God by his side. Love is the ultimative giver of life, because love conquers all. A spiritual journey takes us to the core of our inner selves to discouver our true nature as God sees us. But what is home? On his poem “House and Home” , Mr. Hedstrom describes a home “as family who cares for each other and wtih Jesus in the center.” Where is home? In his poem, “Home is” he gives it a different meaning, “home is within the heart even when start a enw life. .... Home will always be where we are and our memories will travel with us far.” The book cover is a combination of fiction and reality. A sketch of a house over a very green grass with the sunrise behind it. The cover is an allegory of Psalm 23 “In green pastures you let me graze... you restore my strength. You guide me along the right path...” The sunrise shows a new beginning, as Christ takes away the darkness and lightens the path you walk. For those readers curious about poetry, this book is for them. The language is simple, facilitating the understanding of each poem. For song writers, some of the poems in this book will sparkle a tune in your heart. For poetry lovers, this book offers a new look at poems and the art of storytelling. I suggest readers read one poem per day and think about how they can see their reflection in the mirror.
