Description of the Book:

This book is composed of twenty poems illustrating dreamlike slices of time. They are nostalgic adventures, provoked by experiences in nature. They are about change and the resistance against it, the emergence and simultaneous retraction of old and new alike, and the pulsating energy that nature offers. The poems explore how obvious dualisms can collapse when the pristine and the afflicted intertwine. On these journeys, the experience of the world is both mundane and full of wonders.
