Poetic Expression Written by Evelyn Chapman Daniel. The collection of writings in this book has been put together for you, the reader, that you might see, share, and enjoy as you walk along the path in “God’s Garden.” Poetry and Poetic Expression can often, in all its brevity, express more feelings and emotions than the long written word of prose. An awakening of thoughts, an action of an appliance, a strengthening of self-awareness can all be expressed every vividly. The writings in this book are all expressive and meaningful; some might make you smile, some might make you cry, others might make you wonder and you will learn from them. Some might make you see things in ways that you have never seen them before. Many moods and many emotions are expressed in various levels through the intermingling of thought and imagination.
