Release Date: November 14, 2022
Publisher: Naked Armadillo Press
EVERY POEM IS A LOVE LETTER. AND THESE LETTERS ARE FOR YOU.
For all the times a piece of you was missing, for all the days you didn’t know where you belonged, for each tiny moment when you transformed—and still transform.
Infinite Sea of Stars is an ode to love and human resilience. A map of deep scars and faint laugh lines. Instilling an unwavering sense of hope into those who decide to dive soul-first into this mystical journey in book form.
It is a memoir someone else wrote about you. A diary you didn’t know you kept. The manual you needed but refused to open.
Crafted by decades of introspection and meditation practice, Shannon Crossman’s poetry is familiar yet enlightening.
Infinite Sea of Stars will pave the reader’s way to self-love, acceptance, and inner growth, moving through the caverns of discontent and the soul’s oldest wounds to arrive at the trailhead of a life filled with deep joy and wonder.
Great for fans of Hafiz, Rumi, Chelan Harkin, and Adyashanti.
rest in the palm of the Beloved.
Nothing, oh nothing,
can push you over the edge of
that Divine cradle.
No tornado of rage,
sea of shame,
mountain of guilt or fear
can pull you from
the Beloved's gentle caress.
There is no falling.
You are as the small bird
guarded in the nest...
loved and delivered safe
to the day you remember
your own wings.
About the Author
Published in two anthologies, Goddess When She Rules and Hidden Lights, as well as online at The Urban Howl and Wildheart Writers, Shannon's work centers on themes of belonging, resilience, wonder, and the ecstatic.
Nothing excites her more than a blank page or an unexplored path through a solitary forest. Words and the natural world are and have always been, her way back home.
In her heart of hearts, she still believes in magic, craves the ocean like a landlocked mermaid, and dreams of a life without shoes.
