Ciao, amici! I’m really happy to introduce a frequent-commenter/first-time-guest to the site today. I hope you’ll join me in giving author D.L. Finn a warm welcome while she talks about her new release, Just Her Poetry: Seasons of a Soul.
Thank you, Staci, for having me on your blog today to help celebrate the release of my first poetry book, Just Her Poetry: Seasons of a Soul.
- I am on the AIP Paleo diet for health reasons. I’m not a person you’d want to invite to your house for a meal.
- When I was a young girl, there was a deer named Pudding who would eat slices of bread out of my hand—if I was able to remain still.
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 A BIT OF FAMILY
You showed me where you spend your days.
Each hall had a different story. In between I ask questions.
It made you uncomfortable, but that wasn’t my intention.
I want you to learn for yourself, as well as learn things in school.
Our pace quickens, and we have smiles in place. No response.
So, I awkwardly add:
“I only want you to be happy, that is what is most important to me.”
Maybe you hear me, maybe you don’t.
We continue the tour and the moment has passed.
But hopefully I have placed a small seed.
In time it will grow and someday happiness will be your quest.
Then you will show me all the things you have learned.
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. You can find her at the following places:
I have to tell you, D.L., I would definitely have you over for a meal. I’m used to cooking to accommodate a variety of health issues. But even if I wasn’t, I’d be happy to do it for you. Thank you so much for coming here today and sharing your work. I loved your excerpt and wish you much success with your release.
How about it, gang? Let’s hit those share buttons then leave her a quick note of support. I know she’d do the same for you.
