My first book: cave pearls (coming soon)

Hello friends,

I am so happy to show you the cover of cave pearls!

The illustration on the cover is by me. Each poem is accompanied by a b&w watercolour illustration.

This one started to come to life when I began writing about a black hole in my life as a therapeutic escape. Then the story took shape in poems. So it’s all in here, my cave pearls, the ones I have been hiding.

the title of this book was inspired by Dove Allouche’s art, Perle (2017) in the Negative Capability exhibit.
these pearls of memory are from the dark cave of my mind, under the cool pool of trauma, and formed by dribbles of my life through time. my inner child will slice the pearls and finally reveal the process of her own creation, her vast inner world of feelings. i did this work for her, to tell what she saw, and most sacred of all, what she felt both in the heart and the body.

cave pearls is ready to take the leap and be in the world soon, no exact date yet, but if you’d like to be notified you can enter your email below:
