Reaching inwards to explore the self; reaching back to explore what made us who we are.
In this collection of fifty poems, Elisabeth Hewer ponders love and the world, whilst tackling the inexplicable desires and dangers that thread through our daily lives.
At times hopeful, at times despairing, her poems ruminate on all the things we comes up against, even if, on occasion, it’s only ourselves.
This poetry collection was absolutely breathtaking … it manages to take you through an entire spectrum of human emotion in under a hundred pages. ~ Alice Lippart, reviewed in The Book Castle
Hewer so artfully melds her own experience with the rugged and untamed force we know as nature. ~ Logan Wood, reviewed in Tongue Tied Mag
For a debut, Wishing for Birds already feels accomplished, eloquent, and intimate, ultimately, an insightful collection of poetry that is asking to be relished. ~ Emma Burridge, reviewed in The Terror of Knowing
At the core of this book there is a softness, an ache that demands to be felt, demands answers from the unknown. ~ Carly Racklin
Breathtaking! These poems are a treat to read (and reread). Every time I go through them again I notice new things. ~ Jay Littman
Please note: the recently released anniversary edition—with ten new poems and newly designed cover—is now sold out.
