100 poems about the moon, inspired by the woodblock prints of Yoshitoshi and the author's 40th birthday. Foreword by Donald Richie
Leza gives an overview of the book:
"Leza Lowitz is that rare poet who stays focused in the clarity of the mind's now, whether she is immersed in the natural beauty of the northern California shoreline or contemplating Old World architecture and its ghosts. This is a woman with an exceptionally fine-tuned mind who is not afraid to listen to all the ambivalences of her own thought and to share them openly, as if the reader were her best friend. Lucky we all are to have her new collection." -Gerald Nicosia, author of Memory Babe: A Critical Biography of Jack Kerouac
"Just as the moon reflects the sun's light, Leza Lowitz's poetry reflects a life fully lived, illuminating transformations of various kinds. Informed by wisdom both ancient and contemporary, Eastern and Western, this book reminds us that the impulse toward creative renewal is what helps us to thrive in whatever dark corner of the psyche, or world."
--Kim Addonizion, Author of The Poet's Companion and Tell Me
