Smith has undergone a myriad of life experiences and therefore has vast quiet reflections to share with the world. Through her collection, Quiet Moments, Smith offers these thoughts for each reader to witness her growing awareness put into words, and to experience a little piece of her heart. Whether one learns, grows, or simply appreciates more as a result of Smith’s poetry, Quiet Moments will spark times of quiet reflection in the minds of each reader.
