In this latest collection of poetry, River Dixon continues his journey into the crevices that exist between the folds of what defines us as human. When we limit our view to only the surface, as we often do, we are left with a narrow understanding of who we are and why we do the things we do. To grow and move forward, this stunted awareness must be stripped away. It’s imper ...more

You can read this poetry book more than once... Its so inspirational, emotional, melancholic and magical! The poems speak to your heart directly, about allll we often keep hushed or tucked away in the back of our heads. The author know how to capture the lovely energy of love and day-by-day relationships, the loneliness of our horrific realities, and the agonizing darkness of being lost.
Enjoyed every page! Especially amazing descriptions/metaphors and romantic feel/touch. Whether you’re in

Poetry to be savoured.
Reading River Dixon's poetry is like taking a long soak in a warm bath, being immersed in a world of heartfelt words and powerful imagery. Each piece warrants multiple readings, and each opened up new thoughts and feelings, and metaphors to savour. I was particularly moved by "Almost Again" and "Last Night", but there is something to appreciate in all of the pieces. A lovely, lovely collection.

Many people write, but few people write like writers. That sounds like a dubious claim, but if you’re an avid reader like I am, you can see the differences clear as night, the break of day, and later night, in River’s case. His words are so engrossing and I find myself getting anxious for more and more of his releases. Well done! Each poem resonates with tragic ease and you can’t help but wonder who is left waiting on each side of the page.

When once asked for an author bio, River Dixon was quoted as saying, “Life is pretty good these days. But that doesn’t mean I don’t remember. It’s quite easy, too easy, to slip back to what once was, realizing it still is. Fortunately, I have the knowledge that there is an underlying hope in all this, and that is one of the greatest gifts the years have given me.”
