Sometimes in life we meet a person who is able to look deep into our souls and uncover that intimate secret within. And sometimes we find a person who possesses the ability to express that intimacy in warm, soothing terms. But rarely do we find a person owning both talents as we do in the author, Carrolyn Pichet.
Ms. Pichet grasps seemingly ordinary people, events and ideas in our lives and paints them in warm and gentle terms that rekindle memories and satisfy our wish to encapsulate them in our hearts and minds forever. Readers will realize a familiarity with the author’s characters and relate them to their own lives. Ms. Pichet also recognizes poetic potential in others and she has included, along with her own poetry, several unpublished works she has gathered. — Shirley L. Marshall, sister
With adventure of mind and the soul of a poet, Carrolyn Pichet has published two books, The Best Is Yet to Come and Growing Up in the Nation’s Capital. An avid lover of words with the gift of using them with artistic beauty, she enjoys interpreting poetry, telling stories and creating beautiful images. My Lovely Golden Rose is her first book of poetry. After you savor this treasure, share it with your friends and family. They will thank you for it. — Edna L. Bowie, aunt
My Lovely Golden Rose is a gift of love from Carrolyn Pichet to her family and friends. She has gathered a bouquet of poems from her treasure trove of writings and has also included a section for the contributions of her family.
This is her first book of poetry and hopefully it will not be her last. In her two books of prose, The Best Is Yet to Come and Growing Up in the Nation’s Capital, we discovered her subtle wit and keen sense of humor. However, her true gift is found in her poetry.
With simple elegance, she introduces unforgettable characters who remind us of our better selves. Her verses reach into our hearts and elicit emotions long buried. Vivid images transport the reader to a place of beauty and wonder.
I invite you to experience the love Carrolyn offers in this little jewel. Her poetry speaks compellingly of her love for her God, her family and her country. — Marilyn Bowie-Coates, cousin
From the Author
My how time flies. It seems like only yesterday that I started writing poetry. And yet, it was 25 years ago when I realized that my life would never be the same. After the sudden loss of my beloved sister Gloria, I became more sensitive to my surroundings -- to people, to nature, to life -- to everything. I became closer to God because I needed a friend who would always be there for me. Since that time everything has had new meaning for me. I am profoundly touched by the beauty I find everywhere. I am deeply moved by the wonderful things created by His hands.
Years have passed and yet my life has remained essentially the same. Over the years my life experiences have been subtly incorporated into my writing, often mirroring the images of my soul. I feel very blessed and hope I can gently lure you into my world with my thoughts, imagery and words. I reflect my Grandmother Helen’s legacy throughout this collection with intricately detailed stories, fantasy tales, flashbacks and even bits and pieces of my own life. I want to share some of my special moments with you. We can all learn to smile, laugh, live and love. I invite you to join me now and we’ll share these experiences together. As you read, close your eyes and let yourself be lulled into my Lifetime of Poetic Reflections and Precious Memories.
