About the Book:

Lava of My Soul is a collection of Iolanda Scripca's poetry and essays inspired by her life, seen through the eyes of her Soul. Life is a volcano - impressive in color, damaging in magma, nostalgic, curious, sad and happy…

All humans have “wings”… Let's put them on…

A sample poem:

One Last Dance

Weeping willows on dead Swans’ Lake
Ballerina shoes too small, hanging on rusted nails
I keep on waking up from giggled dancing lessons
Mother still alive in the waiting room––proud…

Shaking fingers crossed, holding my fans’ bouquets
My hair not gray, teasing life on pirouettes
It started snowing glitter of way long childhood gone
I scream a violent silence through a double paned sliding dream

It’s time––the time when clocks face me without hands
I shyly grab some “What if’s” and remember to tie my shoe laces
“Stand straight, chin up”––a stage light on a solo swan
A last and gracious slide on an untangled musical key…
