Author Isabella Mori takes us on a slow, iterative meandering through the landscape of images, feelings and thoughts that lends itself well to the deliberate nature of haiku. In Part 1 she reflexts and lightly touches on the topics of haiku and imperfection, with a selection of her own haiku. In Part 2 she delves deeper into these ideas, linking to the work of present and past haiku poets and scholars.More info →
What a pleasure to read this lovely jumble of poetry, stories and plays! While each one is wildly different from the next, yet they are all loosely linked and together they form a unique glimpse into the author’s life and perceptions. Some are raw, some are fresh, some are subtle, but each one dances across the page to speak its truth. This is a book about life. :Rachel McMillen,
Best-selling author of the Dan Connor Mystery series
Shards of Crystal is a gripping poetic metamorphosis of darkness to light. Dealing with issues such as suicide, trauma, dementia, addiction, animal cruelty and the death of a child, the book then begins its transformative move towards beauty with poems about musicality, spiritual liberation and the philosophy of existence. It culminates in a philosophical examination of mankind's place in the universe with Carr's multiple-award-winning poem, "I Am".
Carr composes poetry in six languages including Mandarin. A Pushcart Prize nominee, she's been published from Finland to Mauritius. One of her poems is currently orbiting the planet Mars aboard NASA's MAVEN spacecraft. www.ferngzcarr.comMore info →
