“The Valley is enveloped in deep weaves of arbor
which rise to echoing cobalt peaks
before cascading and fading into the horizon.
The Shenandoah twists erratically through the interior,
glittering rapidly in the sun
and lingering murky in its shadows”...
“It is from this Valley my poems are birthed.
They speak with the voices deeply rooted in my soul.”
In Valley Voices, Melissa DeDomenico-Payne shares her collection of poetry which reflects eclectic and unique styles and forms, university award winners, and new public releases. A reader can expect speakers and themes which poignantly extend from verse to soul.
