These short poems in simple metaphors slide us into our own inner deeper feelings. Johanna Ely creates a dance of inspiring and thoughtful sensations connecting us to nature and oneness, word by word. We know where the postcard is from without checking the postmark. Love, affirmation, and sensuality leap from the pages with clarity.
Poet, Author, Film Maker, and Radio Host/Producer
Take this book in your hand and feel it breathe, feel life stir inside it. Open it, and the poet invites you into her dreams, into moonlit gardens where unruly nature holds sway--the flawed natural world with which she feels a kinship deeper than words. But words are all she has, and with them she engages the material world in all its luscious disorder. Kisses bloom like ripe fruit; buds flower and die in a day. Bodies age, passion remains. This poet does not seek perfection. From loss and mutability she snatches hard-won moments of joy. Follow her, and hear the birds, smell the flowers, feel the wind against your cheek. Open your senses and enter her mysterious garden of dreams.
Editor-in-Chief, Benicia Literary Arts
It's a stunning act of courage when Johanna Ely manipulates twenty-six letters and spells out a depth of pain, yearning, and everyday contemplations from the alphabet soup of her mind.
Her voice, attuned to brilliant imagery, is both subtle and striking as she wields her palette of pinks, greys, and metallic threads over each page of this collection. She's a language artist who travels through dappled sunlight and bleak shadows to bare her gifted essence.
