Gifts From the Heart: A Poetry Journey
This autobiographical account of the author's life through poetry provides insights into the human condition, rendered with humor and a playful spirit. Ruth’s original poems in freeform, sonnet, haiku and tanka, are interspersed with photographs, hand-drawn images, prayers and reprinted poems by some of her beloved poets. A visitor to Koinonia on more than one occasion, Ruth’s poetic expression of her and her husband Pete’s month-long sojourn at Koinonia in 1994 is included here. Her poems have appeared in two of Millard Fuller’s works. As Ruth herself said, "Books feed the mind, poetry feeds the soul." By Ruth Scarr Inglis. Paperback. 216 pages.
