Today I'm delighted to welcome author D. L. Finn to help celebrate her New Release: Deep in the Forest Where Poetry Blooms.
Most of you know Denise well. Through her imaginative stories, we've traveled with her - into the forest and the ocean. She lives in the Sierra foothills of Northern California with her husband, dogs, and cats. Surrounded by towering pines, oaks, and cedar trees, it's no wonder Denise's books often include forest magic. When I asked her about this, she explained that, "Nature is where I feel most at peace. It’s why it shows up often in my poetry and fiction."
One of Denise's favorite expressions is embrace your inner child, and she takes this directive seriously. Besides hikes into the woods or dives into the sea, Denise often travels through the mountains and the countryside on her Harley-Davidson motorcycle. Her husband is always nearby on his cycle. Denise claims that the wind through her hair gives her life. Beautiful image, right?
Deep in the Forest Where Poetry Blooms, Book Two of Just Her Poetry, takes readers into Denise's magical world. My copy arrives today, and I'm looking forward to savoring each poem in the collection. Maybe you'd like to join me?
As a special treat, Denise offers a Giveaway. She writes, "To celebrate my latest release, I will randomly choose a winner from the comment section for one $5 Amazon 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.
I feel moon's soft pull
the loving beams beckon me
to dance under stars
guided by the autumn gleam
on a carpet of red & gold
From Musings from the Back of a Harley
Clustered in the granite wall
Yellow and purple flowers thrived,
Tugging at my childhood memories,
Of a room so once decorated.
When purple gently soothed.
And yellow's cheerful brilliance.
Both offered hopeful innocence.
Wind caressed those sweet times,
Until happiness is released.
A rumble through my past.
Accented in a sparkling green comfort
Beneath the always watchful azure sky.
My inner child soars on the back of a Harley.

The magical gift sits next to my bed. Dressed in black leather, it holds the ideas of generations. I
gently open the promise of endless entertainment in the two hundred and thirty pages. I can
barely contain my joy with so many words that offer knowledge, insight, thrills, adventure,
heartbreak, or laughter. It may take more than one lifetime to explore. Yet, it's never full and always welcomes new editions onto its electronic shelves—even the bad ones. It is my paradise.
