Bui Ihi: The Cooling of the Harvest and Other Poems
- About the Book
Lawi’s poems are a calm and intimate read that indulge in the use of metaphoric descriptions of nature and free flowing verses. This collection evokes his religious upbringing and traditions within his family and community while intertwining a sort of confessional exploration on the role and process of being a poet.
