Here is another poem (to be included in “Just her Poetry”) written from the back of the Harley on an amazing trip to Lake Tahoe at end of October:
The beauty of the mountains
Warms my essence
Yet, at the same time
Chills my exposure.
The tall pines reach out to me
Offering the breath of life
That fill my lungs,
While the smaller trees
All planted firmly in the granite
Spill yellow and red
Which allows my eyes to feast
The nature that swaddles my soul–
From the back of the Harley.
The journey continues
Into this surreal landscape
Where I find my peace in the beauty.
Thank you to all who take the time to leave a review after you read a book–it is the best gift any author could receive!
I am thankful and blessed for each and everyone of you– for being in my life in person and over the internet! I will be sharing some of what my family added to our “Thankful Tree” this year in next week’s blog!
Happy Thanksgiving to those who celebrate it:) If you don’t take a moment to be thankful for all you have in your life.
NOTE: It is that time of year when I need to mention I live in the forest. Why is this important? Because, sometimes our area gets a storm that will knock out our power, internet and phone. When this happens, I light a candle, sit by our wood stove, and enjoy a nice cup of tea. Unfortunately, it also means I won’t be able to access my blog or newsletter. So, if I disappear for a while, know I’m enjoying the weather! If a blog or newsletter gets sent or posted where you see mistakes or something is missing, it is because I work on them online–if the power is out I can’t do that. I apologize if that happens and will fix it as soon as I am able to!
Embrace your inner child, D.L. Finn
