Five Stars on Readers' Favorite – "Full of evocative imagery...delivers a haunting walk through the poetic woods of humanity, of longing and estrangement."
My debut poetry collection is the first part of an exploratory journey through the collective experience of literature and art. Assimilated with a fate-driven poetic method using handwritten phrases on paper slips, The Forest is a three-act journey that invites the reader into itself as it explores what it means to be human and how we live and exist. The collection is the inspirational basis of an immersive visual and literary art installation of the same name with Houston-based artist Mari Omori debuting in 2022.
