In Whispers of the Goddess, Carole Anzolletti has compiled an amazing account of how the Divine whispers among the plainest parts of our lives. Interested in everything that is born and reborn, unattached, unique, and provoking, she will darken as well as illuminate you with the views and thoughts contained in her poetry and prose.

Inspired to reinvent herself and forge a way that worked for her, Whispers of the Goddess became the scaffold she needed to build to continue on her creative writing path. "There are soft, subtle voices that ask us to listen for our own messages and sift through our own feelings and beliefs to see what it is we are faithful to and grateful for. We can cultivate, through writing, this communication with the whole universe in a sacred and centered way. The words will come to save you, to help you!" Whispers of the Goddess reveals thoughts sculpted by the love of so much in and of this universe.

Carole shares an interesting view of the world around her, spiritually, emotionally, and genuinely. Her work has been described as inspiring, deep and raw with truth. "The muse is always there, waiting to be heard, a voice so silent with power. The words that come through will be universally understood. Inspiration walks hand in hand with the animated leaf that scurries alongside us. The peculiar feeling of sadness on the spray of the sea. The way the full moon lights up the face of the ocean, reminding us how very small we really are. We want to do what we love without the fear of being judged. Everything springs forward from there."

Distilled

Stripped by spiritual turpentine

she sits at the edge of her bed

cramps and aches in her back

in her thighs and her knees

a fractured body

made to remember once more

ancient women remembering

their power to enable the whole world

their insomnia when it came to their ability

to hear everything

she listens to the breathing bodies

and the sounds of the night

and is reminded of also mortality

a scorched looking porcelain skull

sat on the dresser beside her

singing a silent song of wasted time

and a shining slice of the moon

brought tears to her eyes
