Piper Leigh - my thin skinned wandering

my thin-skinned wandering embraces image, language and texture through poetry and photography. It is a powerful invitation for the reader to become more than a reader of poems—to engage with transparency, the literary fragment and the image in such a way that the book becomes felt-experience, both physically and emotionally. The poems are a testament to what is born of loss, to the abiding natural world, and to embracing the intensity of longing so that the door can be opened to what mystery reveals. In the words of the poet, ‘this dim notion of life’s myriad details matters.’”

— Renée Gregorio, Tres Chicas Books.
