Description


Bubbly By The Sea is a pithy collection of short poems, comprising two parts; Head and Heart. Like floating in the ocean. These pages will rock you in and out of hot topics, with delicate illustrations throughout. Shedding overdue sunlight on current events, love, loss, inclusiveness, women-empowerment. Back up to the surface with self-love and encouragement. A collection that also emphasizes the philosophy of Wabi Sabi, it is about the aesthetic of things in existence that are "imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete."

If you are looking to explore a sea of simple and strong messages, dive right in!

Nice Words! I was surprised with this book. The desc. Was right but there was lot more in it to offer. I actually read the first part in one night, and the second part - heart the next. It was poetic for sure but the wording was what had me. I wont give anything away but it is very cheeky and modern. Love the art too. Read more

Sea of beautiful words. This is a great collection that has illustrations aligned with the poems. The poetry is short but as the description said, it is strong. The points that the author addresses are well-said and pretty, if that makes sense. They put a spin on a lot of wording and even the illustrations are lightly cryptic. This book is adult but for everyone and inclusive, which I appreciated a lot. It also looks great in my guest room now, beachy aesthetic. Read more
