"Safety love kindness untold measures
Two friends veined likewise branching treasures
One falls the other stays

Love lives in Aurora Morelist's Spiritshine. She writes from the depth of her soul. Her poetry is honest and open as her raw talent speaks through her words. There is beauty in her language that couldn't possibly be duplicated in any way, shape or form. She writes with her heart on her sleeve and pulls you in. There is pain and sorrow in her prose but at the same time there is acceptance and optimism. The hope has not died and the yearning for something better is present in her work. With the pain there is sunshine. There is a longing for something better. An understanding that there is good to come.


"There is a place where I know who I am and why the world is the way it is and what my purpose here is.
There is a place where I doubt this almost daily. And yet, I know.
I believe we all have this place inside us, deep within the layers of our human spirit soulfulness where love lives.
I believe we all doubt ourselves in some small way.
And yet, we grow."
