Barefoot in the Sanctuary is a volume of poetry inspired by long hikes out in the wilderness, spiritual experiences with my synagogue community, and artistic absorption of the tumultuous times we live in. It is D.L. Lang’s 7th poetry book.

Excerpt from the foreword:
These poems were written November 2015 – September 2016 with the exception of “Walking with the Sun Across the Gate” which was written in 2015 around the time of Look Ma! No Hands! and neglected to make it into that book.
They are an amalgam of surreal exaggeration, reality, and outright fiction. Some are inspired by actual people and experiences, and some are a hybrid of many people, many experiences, or just my wild imagination set loose without judgment.
A great majority of these poems were graciously rejected by prestigious literary journals and publishers, setting them free for me to publish them.
