Two poems from…
Future Awakes in Mouth of NOW
by Gerda Govine Ituarte
published by Swan World/Éditions du Cygne
Future Awakes in Mouth of NOW acknowledges the power of silence and reflection to heal the residue that blinds and binds us. Words carry the cadence, tone, feel and melody to weave stories that are enough to create an opening to get through the dark without disappearing – to smell the breath of morning. Future Awakes in Mouth of NOW gives a nod to the influences of transition that form gasps of enjoyment and a sense of freshness.
—Éditions du Cygne/Swan World
