Are My Eyes Still Tame?

Are My Eyes Still Tame? is authoress Raquel Z. Duarte’s second collection of poetry and prose. In it, she writes about different aspects of life that she has seen, perceived, and beheld through her brown eyes. Released over a year after her first book, Raquel’s experiences in life matured her spirit and in turn, her writing. Many readers have commented on the different style of writing it consists of, comparing it to her debut release, Pluviophile.

Released in November 2017, Pluviophile is Raquel’s debut book. A collection of poems written over the first two years of this young author’s life, when she first discovered that writing poetry was her destiny. Written from her [then] current outlook on life, love and heartbreak. “Beautiful book! Pulls on your heart strings but definitely worth the read!!!” as one reviewer commented.
