Poetry is an acquired taste for some. Perhaps that is because those people have rarely read good poetry. For those who want a chance to see what poetry should be about – the baring of a soul – I have a suggestion. Try reading Shaheen Daar’s book, Soul Searching. Many of her beautifully constructed poems, ripe with imagery and pure emotion, may resonate on a personal scale. From love to nature to life in general, Shaheen provides a genuinely unique perspective on those things that color our [...]

You know, there are occasions in life when your preconceptions and prejudices are put to the test and you are forced to concede defeat and accept you were wrong. Although I dabbled a bit in poetry when I was young (didn't all angst-ridden, young men?) over the years I've come to regard poetry with a bit of disdain and dare I say it, even considered poets to be nothing more than writers who couldn't write decent prose. The poetry I have read, either voluntarily, or forced to have read through stu [...]

A lot of wisdom here…What I take from Soul Searching is simplicity. Not that nature and human nature are anything short of vastly complex – but that the key is always simplicity. To stop and feel the truth settle over you. To give in to the simplicity of nature’s will… Of course, it is often so hard to see things clearly in life. This series of wise and insightful poems offer a lot of hope and comfort. They also ask some very meaningful questions.Here are a list of my favourites: Board G [...]

Shaheen Darr is a rarity: a wordsmith who can touch the soul with a minimum of words. This is an uplifting book of poetry born of wisdom. It teaches us to search our hearts and souls for deep, often ignored truths.These realities include, among others: the inevitability of change; respect; endurance; self-acceptance; forgiveness; and, the need for self-reflection.The writing is full of memorable common sense. However, some quotes stood out to me: “Words are the voices of our souls”, “Thing [...]

Shaheen’s book of poems are tremendous reflections on an endless retinue of life issues. Nothing shallow or mere fluff here. Much time and meditation were put into these poems. These artistically done works of art offer many echoes to our own lives. I enjoyed reading the spiritual connection they offered.Thank you for your craft.

It is hard for me to comment on poetry - really hard, because personally I view poetry as a true expression of the soul. The beauty and anguish and joy and pleasure, all wrapped up in words. None the less, I added this beautiful collection to my own stash. To choose a poem from here, is not going to happen. I loved them all. The soulful portrayal of a life and musings, hits home and hits hard. I loved how some of the poems actually [in my mind] became very much like a personal chant, or prayer - [...]

I generally avoid poetry whenever possible. There. I said it. I'm a "say it straight" kind of gal and I'm easily intimidated by the "excessively colorful words" and abstract nature I associate with poetrywell, USED to associate with poetry, before reading this collection. Needless to say, I was very pleasantly surprised when I found myself fully absorbed and truly enjoying Soul Searching.

Shaheen Darr explores nature, life, relationships, rebirth, and acceptance in her book, “Soul Searching: Soul Searching Poems and Reflections.” Possibility and disappointment are woven together, as Darr explores what the meaning of life, how we can accept what has happened in the past, and how to shape our dreams of the future. Her poetry is like a painting, the imagery clear and beautiful resonates within the soul. Her words, simultaneously, create a longing for the meaning of life, as well [...]

I read these collection of poems with a cup of coffee in the wee hours of the morning, which is the only way to read a poetry book. Shaheen Darr's words will make you feel a range of emotions as she describes her view on life, death, love, and all the wonderful and not so wonderful experiences we go through every day. Good choice of words. A combination of free verse and rhymed poetry. Recommended!

Soul Searching is a compilation of poems that are applicable to all parts of life. The poems are uplifting, reassuring, and comforting. It's like having a motivational speaker and Mom's chicken noodle soup in a book! Each poem flowed into the next and the writing was easy for all levels of poetry lovers. I know this is a book I will refer back to over the years for encouragement and enjoyment!

This was a great collection of poems with emotion and depth. I think my favorites are When Angles Cry and No Regrets. I would recommend this book to others, also it would make a great inspirational gift.

I dove into this book not knowing what to expect. Poetry requires a lot from the reader; you have to be completely engaged, mentally active. Poetry is not for lazy readers. However, for the reader who invests, it is rich. That's what I found with "Soul Searching." I read it once through, thought on it, and then went back and read it again. This is the kind of poetry that improves the more times you read it; new lines jump out each time.This book also made me consider the shape of words, and how [...]

"Soul Searching" by Shaheen Darr is an inspirational collection of poems that will make the reader stop, think, reflect, and often appreciate their life and their surroundings. The author reaches deep and finds answers in spirituality, truth, and nature. In one of my favorites, "The Seekers," she reflects: "Guard the beauty that surrounds, Receive the love that abounds, Visible to eyes that look for the pure, all clear their vision, no room for the obscure." In "The Promise," she likens a rainbo [...]

There is so much to love about this collection of poems by Shaheen Darr. I started listing my favorites so that I could read them again later but then I looked down and realized i had listed most of the book. Some of the best were 'From Children, innocence, no regrets, paths, The apparition and I said a prayer for you' (Even though I am not religious) The thing that stood out to me about these poems was that they felt almost like poetry to live your life by. They were poems of advise and of less [...]

Shaheen Darr writes after walks.Walking clears her mind and ignites her creativity."Soul Searching" began as either early morning or late night entries in her diary. This accounts for the free verse style and brevity. Our favorite is, “Poems,” and is reminiscent of the old Latin proverb, “Verba volant, scripta manent.” It means, “spoken words fly away, written words remain.” We’re rewarded by her decision to keep a diary. Most of the poems in this collection are no more than one pa [...]

This book of poems is a very quick read with only about 90 pages, but it’s not the type of read you want to get through quickly. You need to savor each one. Every single poem reminded me of a person, a place, or a time that was brought back to life for me personally while reading these beautiful words. You might not like every poem or you may love them all, but you won’t come away with not feeling something—sadness, happiness, even a laugh or two. They even brought back a few memories for [...]

Soul Searching: A time to spend reading peace. A thoughtful peace. A book of poems of soul, of contemplation and emotion. At first it seems like a journey, but the reflections of the words have an imagry that makes one's eyes close in the moment and live the images Shaheen has so skillfully painted with words and feeling. This collection is one to be savored. I took a few days to read this work and the emotion that Saheen puts into this makes it a joy to read. The journey and meditation of the p [...]

Wow! I don’t know where to start, this book has lots of great poems to read and ponder upon. It is hard to pick a favorite because I liked a lot of them but if I have to pick one, it would be “Emotions”. I like reading and watching emotional stories and connected with this one quite a bit.Author has an effortless way with words and touches your heart with her beautiful poems. They are inspiring, soul stirring and simply serene to read.

This was a beautiful collection of poems and almost daily affirmations. I think all but two or three are just one page long, great for reading once a day or all in one shot. Lovely, I think, to read and meditate on one at a time. A couple of darker verses are sprinkled in amongst a majority of very positive and uplifting verses. A great change of pace and way to celebrate National Poetry Month.

The title says it all. These beautiful poems are all about soul searching, something we all go through at certain stages of our lives. Many spoke to me directly; it’s as if the author knew exactly what I was going through, and her words served as inspiration – mostly in revealing that we are never alone, and also that we are so alike, no matter where we call home. It helps to know that our soul journeys resonate world over, across every spectrum of life. We have so much in common; we are one [...]

This book of beautiful and intimate poetry exploring life can be summed up in one word: soulful. Each poem is a delicacy to be savored, with a depth of meaning enhanced by the straightforward wording and phrases used. The poems resonated with me on so many levels, and I found myself reflecting on them days and even weeks later, turning back to them to re-read. Highly recommended!

Shaheen Darr has gathered a collection of poems beautiful in its simplicity. She has a gift for visual storytelling through verse and is capable of expressing so much through so few words. Soul Searching is a perfect poetic read for a warm evening by the fire or a sunny day of relaxation when the reader needs some time away from the fast pace of life. These are words meant for the quiet time when our mind and soul can rest and reflect on life and its many directions.The collection is sweet, hear [...]

If you are a person who thinks, wonders, searches, asks life’s difficult questions, this book is for you. As much as it is a poetry collection, it is a book of philosophy, of pondering life’s big questions – God, death, misfortune, suffering, spirituality, the ultimate meaning of life – and a biography. Many smaller issues (but no less important to day-to-day life) are dwelt on too – dreams, the passing of time, memories, and many others. Nature, inseparable from human life even though [...]

As a long time aficionado of poetry and prose, I was very impressed with Darr's honest and clean collection of works. Her unique measure is entrancing, however, that is not her strongest achievement. Her style is genuine without any pretentiousness or hubris. On the surface, seemingly simple as she explores themes of spirituality, growth, regret and renewal. And that's how she reaches you. Defenses drop, then your heart and mind are opened to the duality of her words that offer new insights and [...]

Sadly I must admit that it has been years since I've read poetry. In high school and college I devoured it, knowing it was an elusive arena to one so wordy as me.Ms. Darr has a lovely, contemplative, collection of poems, which take us into nature, into the past, and living in the moment. One poem in particular, No Regrets, I found particularly evoking. A poem about a bridal gown, still smelling of her wedding day. I love that Ms. Darr pulls all the senses into her work - we can see butterflies f [...]

Poetry often takes one of two approaches: involuted and language-obsessed or accessible and direct. Poet Shaheen Darr opts for the second of those approaches, spilling her thoughts out on the page with straightforward earnest observations and meditations meant to communicate, not to immerse the reader in form before a meaning can be discerned. Darr's poems are intimate but also worldly, personal but also universal. She chooses a simple, expressive style to deliver observations on life and living [...]

I embedded myself in Shaheen's poetry over a period of three nights; reading and rereading several poems that just wouldn't let go of my soul. This author does a wonderful job revealing herself through her heartfelt writing about love, emotions, social issues, nature, spirituality. All of her topics contain the orchestra of life; she pens from a deep well of feelings. For me, "The Beginning" is the poem that sums up the meaning of this poet's work. And, "The Whisperer"--well, it touched me deepl [...]
