by Daemeon Pratt

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
Overview
This book is the culmination of 30 years of poetry writing, off and on, happy and sad, for better or worse till in dreams do we part. The author has structured it in eras and as such it moves through moments with the unsure first steps of youth, through the loves and struggles of adolescence and adulthood in an opening spiral as poetic rhythms are found and flexed and the wings of promise are opened to take flight into the present and beyond. Many forms and themes are explored but always a sensuality pervades, mingling senses in a lush tapestry of longing and desire that we hope the reader takes with them as they slip into the arms of Morphia.
