New Chapbook, Searching for Eden, by Janet Lee Butler


Janet Lee Butler’s Searching For Eden is a lyrical and sensual collection of short poems that condense moments, seasons, movements and perceptions in and out of light and shadow, all the while creating an expansive quality of contemplation. . . . 
    -John Rowe, President, Berkeley Bay Area Poetry Coalition
 

All lines in this book Searching for Eden by Janet Lee Butler are lovely language, open it anywhere and find a poem  in any sequence of lines, the haiku moment of awakening.  The entire book, with each thought provoking, meditative poem, is also one poem ,beautifully woven and interconnected.
