More > magic... toward our fear of knowing and ultimate truth.” -Lois P. Jones, host of KPFK’s Poets Cafe, poetry editor of Kyoto Journal “We could say about poets, that the good ones say wise things, but the great ones say things wisely. Such a poet is Doraine Poretz…She throws her net wide to include the greater longing for existence.” -Jack Grapes, poet, author of All The Sad Angels “Doraine Poretz knows the secrets of stones, the passions of “voluptuous winds.” Where there are myths and fairy tales to be found, she will unearth them and paint them in glorious colors. Her poetry stretches like a shining river over death and life all at once, transcending both.” -Alice Pero, poet, founder of the Moonday Poetry Series< Less

Japan: Images from a Visual Journal By Jan Kapoor
Paperback: $35.00
Prints in 3-5 business days
"The moon and sun are eternal travelers. Even the years wander on. A lifetime adrift in a boat, or in old age leading a tired horse into the years, every day is a journey, and the journey itself... More > is home." These words were written by the poet Basho some 500 years ago in his diary, Journey into the Far North. When I traveled to Japan in October 2007, these words echoed in my mind as, at the beginning of my journey, I attempted to follow in Basho’s footsteps north to the temples of Motsuji and Chusonji, then on to Matsushima. Every day was indeed a journey: into the past of a thousand years ago in Nara and Kyoto; into the timeless crafts of sumi ink and brush making; into a very special world of music and tea ceremony; into the 16th century world of a mountain village; and into the hyper-modern world of Tokyo. These images are a few of those that captured my eye and heart, a body of work that I have named Japan: Images From a Visual Journal.< Less
