Women, Resilient Women
April 3, 2018
Pat Durmon has been writing poetry since 2005. As an award-winning poet, former mental health counselor, and teacher, she has the knack of leading us to our deepest places and bringing us back refreshed and whole, with new insights into the various aspects of our complex, interrelated, and often mystifying lives. Her new collection considers and honors the significant stages women pass through. The poems speak of nature and its steadfastness. They speak of women who are awake to a difficult world. The first poem in the collection gives the overall picture of a girl/woman walking between vast eternities, between her beginning and her end on earth. It is a journey of growth. It is a story of women.
