A collection of nature, love, and fantasy poems influenced by adventure and mystery.


Susko illustrates an emotional visualization with prevailing themes of light and darkness. Includes a wide selection of topics such as the encompassing lives of leaves, the fall of a star, enthralling gardens, dragons, magic, and visited graveyards.

“Employing images from nature and motifs that recall fairy tales and legends, the verses can be lyrical, bright, and optimistic, often in relation to romantic love, with references to sunshine, laughing, flowers, dew, and bright stars. In other poems, the tone turns gloomy, speaking of fraught existences blasted by such forces as betrayal, mortality, or grief. Each section ends with a poem that gives a nod to the following season…Susko delivers striking images.” -Kirkus Reviews
