Description

"Dreaming Reality" is an exceptional demonstration of the stunning varieties of human feelings and emotions that are expressed in a vivid way. The poems illustrate the infinite choices of how emotions can be shared in words, perceptions, and symbols. The poet's unique writing style uses metaphors and rhymes to express complex thoughts that nestle within one another. Drawing upon everyday occurrences, common situations, and mystical imagery, the author expertly creates dark and extraordinary fantasies. "Dreaming Reality" reminds us how poetry can powerfully touch our hearts and minds. The French-language edition of this book, "Rêver au reel", won the 2014 Trillium award for poetry.
