Description
Dana Ravyn's debut poetry collection reaches into the depth and breadth of her poeticism, exploring themes like memory, beauty, emptiness, and suffering. Her accessible language weaves an evocative experience that transports readers into the landscape of nature's mysteries and destruction, identity, and alienation. Haunting language and striking imagery make familiar ideas fresh. In her words, "My job is to create poems that return the reader to the beauty and joy in their heart, not as a conveyance, but as a sort of incantation that opens the door to liminal experience." From the daring to the lyrical, this collection has something for any poetry lover.
