***Poetry to breathe in, by one of Twitter's most popular micropoets.***

In his fourth collection, Bauke Kamstra presses even deeper into the unknown and unknowable of human nature, even as he raises micro-poetry to a new formal perfection with a virtuosity that is as vibrant and revelatory as it is fluid and natural. Rife with the lush, concise sensuality of Basho's greatest haiku, yet laughing in the face of strangling constraints, these poems explore the relationship between human and air, breathing, space, and an apprehensive grounding in reality. A sense of need will take you on a varied voyage beyond the farthest edge of desire, only to leave you craving more.

This is a book for savoring, for relishing, for sharing with the world. The ebook version comes as a gift with this book, and within the digital copy are links with each poem to share with your followers on Twitter. We want to change the world by injecting beauty and passion, and you can help us do that by sending these words out. Provoke conversation and bring some style and charm to your social media presence.

Review quote

"Kamstra embraces every encounter, believing they guide him to a higher plane of existence. As a result, his poems seek to answer the voice within all of us that has wondered 'why me' or 'when will things change' and provides an encouraging answer: We have the power to evolve into something greater when we view each life experience as a valuable gift and an opportunity to be reborn." Catherine LoFrumento-Foster, Poet

"Bauke's poetry is all at once tender and surreal, bursting with a playful curiosity about the sensual lives of we humans. A poet to keep coming back to!" Brendan Bonsack, Poet, Radio 3CR

"The micro format once again brings a big presence in a small package, and Bauke's razor wit shines through with ever increasing brightness. A beacon to give us guidence in the dark places that come and go."
Tyler Salzman, Historian

"Bauke Kamstra is a writer I have read for many years and whose words can, at times, make you feel that he knows you. Or you wish to know him, to reach out and touch him, except one does not wish to take their eyes off his writing. They are as film visuals and touch you in every sense of feeling, shape and form. Some will hold your mind with its gentle hand, while others shake your thoughts, shapeshifting each movement you feel within your own life, touching you with the thoughts of others you love, have loved, held and cherished." Chey Laine, Poet
