Reviews of the Abundant Sparks ebook:

This eclectic collection of about 70 poems from poet D.L. Lang embodies the spirit of American poetry–diverse and without rules. You probably don’t know D.L. Lang; I don’t know her either. Or do I? After reading this outstanding collection of original works, I feel that in a strong sense, I do. I believe you will too, and you’ll find your time reading Abundant Sparks joyfully well spent.” – J.A. Wallace

I found this collection of poetry to be exceptional in its diversity and intensity. The selection of poems gives the reader an excellent feel for this budding star poet’s abilities in writing and observation. The book also shows that the poet has a good feel for her readers, in the order that the poetry was presented. Overall, the best book of poetry that I have read in quite some time.” – North Woods

From deeply (and universally) personal to powerfully observant, Diana Lang is a brilliant poetess. The goosebumps of powerful distillations tune the reader at the book’s beginning with poetry that appears to be the author’s most recent verse. D.L. (Diana) Lang is a name to note and remember. Highly recommended reading.” – Julia Busch

Lang’s facility with language never ceases to astonish me. And she does it again in this new collection. If you want an example, read the first poem, Penguin’s Prayer. A must read.” – Helen C. Page

About the Author
D.L. Lang

D.L. Lang is a contemporary American poet and spoken word artist. The author of over a dozen poetry books, Lang has been writing poetry for over 25 years. She has performed her poetry on stage hundreds of times at protest rallies, county fairs, literary festivals, open mics, poetry circles, bookstores, libraries, and live radio broadcasts.

From 2017 to 2019 she served as Vallejo, California's Poet Laureate. Her poems have been awarded with numerous county fair ribbons, transformed into songs, used as liturgy for prayer, and to advocate for peace, justice, and a better world.

The scribe of over 1,200 poems from haiku to free verse to masterful rhyme, covering a wide variety of topics, D.L. Lang has poetry that's sure to delight. Lang dabbles in both gritty realism and surrealistic wordplay, sorrowful elegy and uplifting affirmations. Her poetry is a mixture of topical political commentary, religious devotional meditations, and poetic autobiographical memoir. Her words take you on journeys deep into nature, memory, spirituality, and the whisperings of the heart.

She is the author of Tea & Sprockets, Abundant Sparks & Personal Archeology, Look Ma! No Hands!, Poet Loiterer, Id Biscuits, Barefoot in the Sanctuary, Armor Against The Dawn, Dragonfly Tomorrows & Dog-eared Yesterdays, Resting on My Laurels, The Cafe of Dreams, Midnight Strike, and This Festival of Dreams. She has also released a chapbook compilation entitled Wanderings, a Jewish poetry compilation entitled Paradise Collectors, and her debut spoken word album entitled Happy Accidents, and is the editor of Voices, Verses & Visions of Vallejo.

Her poetry has also been published in the Benicia Herald, Poets Are Heroes Magazine, ReformJudaism.org, Poetry Expressed, Frost Meadow Review, and the Jewish Journal of Los Angeles. Her poetry has been anthologized in A Poet’s Siddur (Ain’t Got No Press, 2017), Light & Shadow (Benicia Literary Arts, 2018), Marin Poetry Center Anthology, Vol. 21 (2018), and Verses, Voices & Visions of Vallejo (2019).
