Yesterday I was at the voiceover studio recording readings from Follow: Akashic Dreaming Through Time poetry book. I’ve been asked if it takes many run-throughs and yes it does. This is one of them and not as accurate in this taping. The final voiceover contains edits which include removal of pauses, misread lines and other edits. Enjoy!
Today, I’m a featured author and Author of the Day on Manybooks.net. There’s an interview performed by Naomi Bolton. The questions detail my writing for Inspire Me: Raw, it’s history and what inspires my poetry.
There’s a great feeling of accomplishment when receiving favorable reviews. Readers have busy schedules and with limited time to engage in books, taking the time out to write a review is a gift. If it’s written with pros & cons or a detail opinion of how the writing inspired, the author experiences a sense of achievement and appreciation.
Below are a few excerpts from some of my reviews. Sending gratitude to all who made the time to submit. Thank you!
“I bought this book on the recommendation of a friend. I was told that the images are breathtaking, and the poetry sublime–and he was right! ”
“Sonia Lozada is an author whom I feel inspires deep spiritual contemplation in her poetry. Follow connects intellect with spirit. The way the author finishes the book with a poem tying history’s memories to universal knowledge in the Akashic Records awed me. Such a wonderful, thoughtful, emotional journey.”
“An amazing journey through time and space. So much depth and so much beauty. A privilege to be present in the first steps of this amazing poet.”

Hello and welcome back to Poetic Resurrection. The poem FOLLOW is a combination of various dreams which represent past lives. Written in prose, I envisioned a pottery maker in the year 300 B.C. Keeping the feeling of what I experienced and after extensive research on what kind of pottery was being made in this era, I wrote the first part. Here a glimpse of the first section and the reading. Soon to be released on Amazon. Enjoy!
Fire burns tall in the kiln. Hues sway of saffron, cardinal, amber with hints of cobalt mesmerize as the salty drops from the forehead—stings eyes. Hands bleed from the dryness of yellow clay creating blood henna. Craft soldiers for Emperor Qin Shi Huang—molding soldier’s figure, carve fine details. Body aches from laboring days, thoughts of children playing, yearning family. Outside the screams of whips upon the skin of convicts in this blistering purgatory. Death visited before thirty-eight years, my handmade tile—tombstone. Ask and it shall be given—silence. Yet, I followed.
