Jar of Fireflies

$12.00

A Chapbook by Marc Di Saverio

In this collection of 19 haiku, acclaimed poet, Marc Di Saverio, crystallizes Zen-like moments and poignant yearnings for connection with the mystical, sometimes playful, sometimes surreal, divine cosmos, beneath the facades of contemporary life. Each haiku is a “dandelion-clock”, a firefly, a light of illumination, an epiphany of clarity and expansion. Complementing the poems are beautiful minimalist artistic interpretations and meditations in traditional mediums by Laura Kraehling and Rhiannon Milne under the guidance of bLYHn.

“now with slow
windless steps I wind the
dandelion-clocks”
