I believe he still has a gun. They need this nationwide.

More Shots For My Poetry Book #cameras #photos #books #lorijeanfinnila #womenauthors

Image
  I used the sepia filter with these. Not all my shots looked good with this filter. I'm keeping the cost down on my next poetry book, as I did the last. I used different black and white filters for my last book and where I appreciate the book I want to move more nostalgic this new one. My camera isn't capturing pictures well enough clarity wise, though I like my compositions. Let's hope it's just a dark-light day in the park problem. I just thought I'd share a bit more of what I captured today. Any camera brand recommendations? Cannon Powershot seems to be letting me down. I get a great focus on a shot then lose it.

Remember Another Woman Dead in the Park #lorijeanfinnila #singersongwriter #deadwomaninthepark

Image
  Image by  Dennis Peterson  from  Pixabay I remembered another woman passing, maybe more, in vain. Dead Woman in the Park: Unreasonable Expectations written by Lori Jean Finnila You are lost now not knowing what you see so sure of your fear before you die As you lay here dying no one hears you crying you eventually die eventually others who know your pain cry In the beauty of nature you find your last home perhaps finally feeling the safest ever perhaps it was a wanderer perhaps it was your fear that took you to your last day here I will remember you I know your journey I know your path I am a woman too who couldn’t fit into what was expected of us We all know too much we can’t fit into this triangle   of expectations that are unreasonably put upon us that no one can expect to live through but some do by chance Perhaps some still leave earlier Not in the same way yet they’ve all known the pain of the unreasonable expectation Some die of the exhaustion Some die of the cold Some die of

The Purple Sun Opens

Into Another Land #safehome #lorijeanfinnila

Image
  Even as your hiding Even in the dark Walking around corners So far from everyone  As you dodge in and out  Throughout your day Waiting for the chance  to speak in the night  for no one else to hear Someone will hear  your intelligent words She is there  Far away Dark and cold So cold so deep so light Deep down buried The sun shines so yellow Fills the sky 2 skies That fold 1 an unknown place So surreal far away into another land Into another land someone will hear your intelligent words.

34 Poems and More Already For My Next Poetry Book #poetry #womenauthors #lorijeanfinnila

Image
Image by  Nile  from  Pixabay Just counted 34 poems I have under my google account not counting some writing that I have here. I can't believe I've acquired enough to write another poetry book already. I would force myself to sit down at night and write and then I'd stop and start working on other things. So happy the time I set aside added up to all this. Here's a touch of one of the short poems that caught my attention highly. Your Intelligent Words Even as your hiding Even in the dark Walking around corners So far from everyone  As you dodge in and out  Throughout your day Waiting for the chance  to speak in the night  for no one else to hear Someone will hear  your intelligent words.

  Image by Chris0223 from Pixabay.com Lyrics: Verse I say no though  that's not what I mean I want you, when I capture your presence near me    Chorus I can't do or think what  I want to I was meant to never be this way I was born in the wrong place I was taught to say no   Verse My mind keeps coming Back to you Your words, your breath The way I watch you move Picturing you inside me Chorus    Verse  I shudder when I see you leave Knowing I'll never see you again I imagine everything you'd do to me Your touch your taste Your mouth inside of mine   I can't do what I want to I promised I would never do Never thinking on my own   Standing all alone   Chorus      No, no no, no no no no no no mmmm repeat

I will be recording it soon. Verse I'm up one more day The sun is shining though I don't feel   as connected as others do I'm still so grateful I feel I have much to do I feel his message I   fight to put into words the meaning of my …..existence Chorus I feel so close to God But I don't want to reach him too soon Please tell him to love me...... And let me remain Verse Another Sunday I can't make it to church though I connect with those that perished on a daily basis (I know the feel of death) Chorus I feel so close to God I don't want to reach him too soon Please tell him to love me... And let me remain..…... Verse I looked at your face and learned what pain was from you I can’t imagine the pain you suffered or maybe I did I was the black sheep of the family a mess when I
