New Release by Harmony Kent - Sorrowful Soul, Book 3 in the Soul Poetry Series! @harmony_kent #poetry #grief #poems #NewRelease

Hello, beautiful readers! Today I'd like to share with you the newest poetry book from an incredibly talented author, Harmony Kent! If you have never read a story or poem from her, you are in for a treat! Please welcome Harmony to our space as she shares this beautiful book with you all.


Hi, Yvi.

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.

Since Elizabeth Kubler-Ross’s excellent book on the stages of grief, we now have an established set of seven stages to the grieving process. Although these stages are non-linear and can be revisited at any time, it’s helpful to have a rough idea of what we might expect during this difficult period of transition. The second stage is commonly known as Denial.

Here’s an extract from the opening lines to a poem about disbelief …

From Part 2: Denial

(Extract From Done)

Hands raised

Palms out

Flat in refusal

Blood stained

Coated in tears

Of hurt and disbelief

You would never

Leave me alone

Stay away, I tell

The naysayers

Who’d have me


Have you ever found yourself in a state of disbelief and denial over an unexpected change or loss? Chat with me in the comments. I hope you enjoyed this poetic excerpt and would love to know what you think. Thanks for reading! 😊

About the Book:

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 Kent spent 13 years in a Zen Buddhist monastery, where she faced her demons and overcame devastating low self-esteem and found freedom. After a life-changing injury, Harmony returned to the world at the tender age of 40, and her life as a writer began.
