Overview

Set to the music of bird flight, sight, and song, these poems, in the form of fragmented ancient text, tell a story of loss and the journey toward love, and acceptance. The text, accented by silence (white space), allows for an intimacy akin to pillow talk. The poems are raw, seeped in nature imagery, and deeply devotional. They are composed of the intricate tenors of devastation and faith, and the fragile harmonies between them.
