a jarful of moonlight
This is a series of short love poems.






This was a wonderful short collection of poetry. The author is able to succinctly summarize and explain emotions through her work.
I love you with all my being
but loving you
is not my being. 
The author's creative use of words and expressions aren't easily described. The style reminds me of other prominent Poets such as Rupi Kaur andNayyirah Waheed. I wish the volume was longer to experience more of the author's voice. I hoped to read more about the authors experience as a immigrant. The immigrant experience was alluded to but not fleshed out.
the pain
you received as a gift
wrapped in a shiny paper
that said, I love you!,
you re-gifted to me
carefully wrapped in a shinier paper
that said, I love you more!
I would recommend this to readers who enjoy short stanza  poems. The author explores healing, grief, relationships and writing throughout this volume. I will read more writing by this author in the future. I expect with time the author's talent will expand and and develop further.

I received a copy of this book from Bahar Books in exchange for an honest review.
