“the weight of dew” on another holiday lit list

Posted by Daniela Elza on Dec 19 2012

the weight of dew is on the Holiday Lit List of Vancouver is Awesome. Read the whole thing here: Holiday Lit List—Poetry! Poetry! Poetry!!!

“The gorgeous cover of Daniela Elza’s the weight of dew (Mother Tongue Publishing), featuring a photograph by Robin Susanto, gives an indication of what you’ll find between the covers. These poems are not only a treat for their language and the imagery they invoke, but also for their actual visual aspect. The emphasis on the space between words forces the reader to pause and savour what is presented, rolling the language around in mouth and mind. The words fall and sit with the lightness of dew, landing on the consciousness as a dragonfly might, but lingering much longer.”

Thanks Liisa Hannus.

    Hey, Nicole. Thank you. You were on my mind the other day. I have been in your neighbourhood a couple of time and thought of other times… Thanks for stopping by. If you are at the same email, will let you know when the launch for my upcoming book is out, slated for April. This one will be with all the crows. Hope you have been well, and hope to see you around sometime.
