Overview

From early disenchantment, through the kaleidoscopic spectrum of motherhood, to eventual separation and spiritual resolution, this poetry collection leads the reader on a turbulent and timeless journey toward self-truth and lasting fulfillment within the constraints of addiction and longing. Sometimes heartrending, often deeply provoking, each poem unerringly reveals another facet of the intricate and echoing spiral that is any tumultuous intimate relationship. Whether exploring the frailty of a family's ability to acknowledge each other, the violation of trust, or the resounding richness of a moment in nature's embrace, the author brings insight and exquisite grace to the layered complexities of everyday life.
