Today, I’m lending my space out to D. L. Finn to promote her new poetry book. You guys make her feel welcome, and D. L. the floor is yours.
Thank you, Craig, for having me on your blog to celebrate the release of my first poetry book, “Just Her Poetry Seasons of a Soul.”
- I’m always searching for wisdom in the chaos.
- I have strong Type A tendencies and have spent a lot of time working on my patience.
Take a journey with D.L. Finn as she blends her love of nature with her deepest emotions. Sit with her on the forest floor observing its tranquil beauty, or stroll along the ocean’s shore admiring the vastness of its horizon. Here in these peaceful moments you’ll be able to experience her thoughts and feelings in the light—and in the darkness. This is a thought-provoking collection of poetry that invites the reader into all the seasons of a soul.
Excerpt from BONUS POETRY:
THE OLD WOMAN
The old woman follows the night.
Quietly submerged in amethyst…
As her robes stroke the hard ground.
The stars are her guide.
The changing moon is her light
As her eyes pierce the darkness.
Her feet are safely wrapped in leather
She keeps moving forward.
Her walking stick is strong and sturdy
She follows the untouched path
Through the hushed frozen forest
She maneuvers the terrain.
She might trip or fall over the obstacles
But that doesn’t stop her
She always gets back up
Because her destination awaits.
She knows the bearded old man
Is making the same journey
In another time…
In another place.
In that moment when they meet
They will both be home.
But, the old woman’s journey
Has only just begun.
So, without stopping or resting
She keeps walking…
Bravely into the darkness
Toward the promised bliss.
D.L. Finn is an independent California local who encourages everyone to embrace their inner child. She was born and raised in the foggy Bay Area, but in 1990 relocated with her husband, kids, dogs, and cats to the Sierra foothills in Nevada City, CA. She immersed herself in reading all types of books, but especially loved romance, horror, and fantasy. She always treasured creating her own reality on paper. Finally, being surrounded by towering pines, oaks, and cedars, her creativity was nurtured until it bloomed. Her creations vary from children’s books, young adult fantasy, and adult paranormal romance to an autobiography with poetry. She continues on her adventures with an open invitation for her readers to join her.
