Embracing The Moon: Twenty-Five Little Worlds
Ken Stange
Published by Two Cultures Press (2013)

The great poet Li Po drowned after trying to embrace the moon reflected in the still waters of an isolated lake. These 25 concise and sensuous poems, each paired with a stunning and provocative colour digital artwork, also embrace that incarnation of the tantalizing mystery of our existence in this immense universe that the moon universally symbolizes. The images are startling and the poems cut to the quick of our emotional vulnerability as strangers in a strange land. It is not just a book for readers of poetry or visual art enthusiasts. It is for anyone who has looked at the moon and wondered what it all means.

Introducing the works is an interesting historical discussion of the tanka, as well as an explanation of the inspiration and genesis of the book.

unclothed limbs stretching

still water wrapped in white sheets

cool naked beauty

welcome azure dappled sky

peace that comes in winter's pause
