Inspiration of the soul – Inspiracion del alma
Confronting all the difficulties that day by day we have to juggle in order to survive in this wild world that we have to endure every day, it is a blessing from the Omnipotent to have an oasis of words as a palliative with doses of harmonic words that serve as a natural ointment to revitalize the neurons and be able to comfort our existence, to observe the good-nature side of our surroundings and understanding with unyielding hope that there are new horizons in life. This jewel converted into a book compiles all the internal feelings of a lady who with a very sensible intention presents us her naked soul and stopping her heartbeat to depict in each poem, verse or prose, odes, elegies and sonnets, messages that denote her most intimate feelings of love, disaffection, family and motherland love.
Ana Arelys Cruz Cabrera, daughter from the motherland of Juan Pablo Duarte y Diez, a biologist and technologist specialized in sleep disorders, who made this dream a reality; in her previous historical book, Contrast of two cities, Providence and Santo Domingo, she has already demonstrated her enormous sensibility with a simple writing, easy to understand and feel.
She has been shaped on the forge of the existence like a gladiator confronting dragons and wind turbines, horseracing with grand style opening pathways with a sword of hope, one arrow of pride and a plethoric seal of love.
I stand with my glass raised to the vast universe for the inspirational muse that lives in her and pray to the Great Architect of the Universe to continue giving her blessings translated into health, so that for many years, she continues giving birth in the Parnassus of literature.
Her personality, elegance, intellectuality, patience and human interaction makes her a woman to whom writing a poem is not possible, simply, because she is a poem converted into a woman.
