Publisher’s Synopsis

Rooted in Zen, Taoism, and traditional Chinese poetry, and influenced by modern Western movements such as Surrealism and Expressionism, this poetry collection reflects the author’s efforts to transfigure and redeem the drabness of life using the imagination. It reveals the poet’s inner state through imagery drawn both from the subconscious and from outer reality, as it illustrates her distinctive observations of life that harmonize oriental thought with metaphysical sensibility.
