About the Book

Poetry is a powerful way to use words for self-expression and exploration. Through poetry, deep emotions can be brought to the surface and expressed. This collection is as much about selfawareness as it is about the perfect delight of being in love. It speaks of different paths on the journey of discovery through the corridors and dimensions of love. Turning Pages: A Poet’s Reflections captures the intricate raw power of words and the subtlety of their influence. While most of the poetry can be classified as free verse, there are standard poetic forms scattered throughout—from poems that lean strongly toward sonnets to others that embody the delightful lantern form in appearance. The words of Dave Penn plunge the heart and mind into the imagery and landscape of human life. Come enjoy an immersive experience, where you will find yourself reflected in many of the creative expressions. These words capture some of the realities, fantasies, and passions of relationships while warming your heart and lifting your spirit.

About the Author

Dave Penn fell in love with poetry in elementary school, writing his first poem as a sixth grader in Jamaica. He lived in Brooklyn, New York, and Maplewood, New Jersey, before relocating to Calgary, Alberta, Canada, where he engaged his love for words in this personal and expressive creation. He dedicates this book to the memories of his late mom and dad, whose lives demonstrated a love for God, people, and service. Turning Pages is his first anthology.
