I'm thrilled to share a new release from good friend and author D.L. Finn. I love her poetry and if you haven't tried it, you are in for a treat.
Thank you for having me over to visit your amazing blog, Sandra 😊 Today I’m going to share a couple of poems, the video, and a chance to win a gift card.
Embark on a captivating journey with D. L. Finn as she guides you through the intricate landscapes of free verse and symbolic poetry. Hike with her through the magical forest, feel the wind on your face riding on the back of a Harley, or bask on the warm Hawaiian shores. Her search for life’s magic invites the reader to traverse through the four seasons in part one. Emotions, observations, and stories weave through part two’s texture. Whether the words explore a sunset, healing, or magic, each poem flows through moments where poetry blooms.
My brown dog and striped cat Rest comfortably by me.
They are my loving muses. Their peaceful presence Captures my soul's prose And delivers it into existence.
From Free Spirit
Surrounded by abundance.
Staring eyes see nothing.
Sweet scent of spring goes unnoticed.
The sun's warmth, tries to thaw frozen souls
Birds croon good news, no one hears it.
Earth offers wisdom, we live in an icy vacuum
Our senses have become numb.
Until that day.
When one brave soul steps outside that cave
And finally sees where they are.
Heavenly exquisiteness makes them cry.
And opens their once-closed heart and mind.

The dusty-book aroma filled me with happiness. The old house was mine now, including this exquisite library. My hand brushed over some of the great classics Treasure Island, Moby Dick, Pride and Prejudice, The Great Gatsby, and Little Women. I sneezed and continued to rescue the collection from its grimy lair. There would be hours of reading seated by a roaring fire. I breathed in gratitude, knowing all my dreams had come true. Then, I ran across a book that would not budge. A heavy tug revealed what was hidden.

FUN FINN FACTS
1. I played Scrabble for the first time this year, thanks to my husband’s suggestion. Now I’m addicted and got a new board set for my husband and my 40th Wedding Anniversary.
2. I’ve collected rocks and crystals since I was a little girl. There are so many around the house that it takes me several trips to put them all on my front deck to give them a nice full-moon bath.
To celebrate my latest release, I will randomly choose a winner from the comment section for one $5 Amazon Gift Card.
