Djana Bayley's second volume of poetry features poems welling from the enchanted lands of memory and dreams -- places familiar to us as our heart beat, yet at the same time strange to our conscious mind and even mysteriously threatening. In these lands colors are more vivid, scents stronger, sounds sharper and emotions revealed in more desperate extremes than experienced in the everyday world.

Though we usually only visit these landscapes in sleep or when we lose ourselves in reverie, since time began, poets and artists have striven to recreate the glimpses they have been vouchsafed into these fantastical kingdoms. In this book, readers will find the poems Ms Bayley has brought back from her own ventures in these lands that can seem so distant and alien yet lie near to us as our own blood and bone – the beautiful and perilous countries found only in Landscapes of the Heart.
