Blurb:

If we’re lucky, we meet twilight at the front door and old age creeps in on the night breeze.


Even if we make it to our twilight years, the more we age, the more loss we must endure as part of the cycle of life. Many of these poems lament death, but they also relate to broken relationships, severed friendships, and the loss of youth. This book of grief poetry is as much about saying goodbye and working through loss as it is about death and love split asunder.


This heartfelt collection provides company and compassion through the devastating journey of loss and shows us we do not travel this lonely road alone. Within these pages we share shock, numbness and denial, catapult into anger, bargaining, depression, loneliness, and guilt, and—eventually—make the seismic shift into testing the possibility of a new normal and finding acceptance.

Harmony here:

Hi, Debby. Thanks so much for hosting me today. It’s always wonderful to visit with you.


Here’s a little bit I’d love to share about my latest book of poetry, Sorrowful Soul. Full of freestyle poems, which provide company and compassion through the devastating journey of grief and loss and onward, this heartfelt collection shows us we do not travel this lonely road alone.


Though I’ve organised this book of poetry into seven sections, which follow established stages of grief, I’d like to note bereavement is non-linear and messy. It’s common to move up and circle around, and progress to the so-called higher steps, only to come crashing down, especially on anniversaries or other meaningful dates. Not even meaningful, as it can be the most insignificant of everyday things that undoes us … a discarded shoe, an odd sock, or a simple visit to the shop.

D.G. – You said a mouthful here Harmony. I know of what you speak, only too well. 🧡


Below is an extract from a poem about the journey through grief and moving toward a tentative acceptance of a new reality …

From Part 6: Working Through
(Extract From Night Train)

This train of travesty don’t stop
Just keeps a rollin’ down these treacherous tracks
The further it lurches into the dead, fallen leaves
The more friends and acquaintances fall behind
Unwilling or unable to journey with me and my baggage
As I climb my mountain of woe and regret—too near the edge
I grow tired and weary, my luggage heavy
To continue on there’s only one thing I can do
Pack my grief into a smaller suitcase
Hold it tight to my heaving, ache-filled chest
And take a leap of faith from this speeding train
As it hurtles straight for the abyss

H.K. -The line ‘Pack my grief into a smaller suitcase’ was inspired by one of Debby’s podcasts on grief, which I love. These short pieces on grieving are a must-listen and emphasise the non- linear nature of grief. Debby has a wonderful voice, and I could listen to her for hours.

D.G. – Harmony, I’m tearing up here from your heartfelt poem and your most kind words about me, and honored you’ve been inspired by my podcasts enough to listen and share one of my lines in your poem. I cannot wait for your book to become available in paperback! 💜


H.K. – Sadly, at times it seems as though grief piles atop grief, and the ‘train of travesty don’t stop.’ Life doesn’t always wait for us to recover from one loss before it hits us with another. Have you had to cope with multiple losses at once? If so, what helped you through your difficult times? Chat with me in the comments. I hope you enjoyed this poetic excerpt and would love to know what you think. Thanks for reading.

    1. Debby’s sharing of her grief has helped me to share this book. It seemed such heavy content, but something we all experience at some point in our lives. With so many bumps in the road, I’ve found it helps immensely to know we’re not alone. Thank you for your wonderful words and support, Jan. And much gratitude for downloading a copy! Hugs 💕🙂

  4. I’m so glad you brought up how messy grief is, Harmony. There’s nothing linear or organized about it (the mere thought that it follows any kind of rules almost makes me laugh). Your poem captures the travesty of that out-of-control train ride. And I couldn’t agree with you more about Debby’s podcasts. They’re beautiful and full of gentle wisdom. Congrats, Harmony, and thanks for hosting, Debby.

    1. Thanks so much Diana for your lovely words for both me and Harmony. And as I’ve commented on another of Harmony’s posts – the 7 grieving stages that Dr. Kubler wrote about were originally written for the poor souls who are informed about their coming demises. For us grievers left behind, there is absolutely no law and order for any of the stages, we do not pass go and move on to the next, we shall do a dance between them all and back throughout our lifetimes. ❤

  6. Harmony’s resume is quite impressive. One of the first books I ever bought on my Kindle was Polish Your Prose, and I also enjoyed reading The Vanished Boy. I’m not much of a poetry reader/writer, but I’m always excited for those who make their publishing dream come true.

  7. I think the advice about packing grief in a smaller suitcase is excellent. The problem with grief it can expand until it becomes overwhelming. The idea of jumping off the grief train is a good one too. Best wishes on your collection. Thanks, Debby for hosting.

    1. So true. It can take over our whole life eventually and permanently. The grief train imagery came from a time in my life when it seemed everything was spiralling out of control. Thanks for all your wonderful support, John 💕🙂
