CultureCult anthology of poetry “Nocturne” is a glittering tapestry featuring diverse impressions of night, and the emotions that the dark tends to invoke in a poet’s soul.
Essentially, the visual grace of the night sky is enough to stir a sensitive poetic soul to verse. The sun is virtually forgotten as the poet immerses herself into the dark, walking down the spiral of her genetic helix into domains hitherto unknown to her intellect. She approaches it not with the omniscience of a Goddess but the curiosity of an Alice who chooses to “fall” down a rabbit hole into wonderland.
“Nocturne: Poetry of the Night” features poetry by more than sixty poets from around the globe.
