Lanterns of the Soul offers a collection of poetry inspired by all the things we love and question-relationships, faith, nature ... life, itself. It is a heartfelt compilation of author Lynda Harris's deepest thoughts and emotions over a lifetime; hers are words we can all relate to, as well as thoughts that make us pause to think and reflect on our own journeys through life.
Each poem offers a unique perspective on an idea-words that bring moments to life, giving us reasons to laugh out loud or cry tears of happiness or sorrow. Shedding light on both the extraordinary and mundane experiences of life, these verses trace a passage through one life and reach out to others following the same path.
A Letter Just the Same
I'm writing to you, Uncle Harold, Though you're one I never knew, To tell you that your love of poems Was passed to me from you.
I'm well aware you know me not, For I was very young That day the angels called your name And beckoned you to come.
Your sister Mary's oldest girl- They often call me Lynn- For it is I who writes these words- All grown, the child you knew back then.
