About the Book

Holding the truth burned my hand. The seesaw burned my soul. But the end result is my true self Is worthy, Purple, and Scarred. Inspired by her greatest muses—her love of children, gardens, and dogs—Lisha Simmonds shares lyrical insight into her existence as she embraces all she has been given while living fully and loved. In her debut collection of poems, Lisha reflects on lovers, adventures, and life in general through gentle verse intended to bring a smile or resonate as relatable. Within her diverse poems, Lisha explores the power of star movement across the sky at night, gratitude for a spectacular life, a physical tangle locked with God’s love, and an eerily desolate beach where the ocean dances without an audience. A Soul Not Eclipsed is a volume of moving free verse that reflects on one soul’s unique journey through life.
