Hello everyone :heart:

After sharing various teasers through social media, today is finally the day: Musings from a Wildflower; the very first Micro Poetry series collection is available for purchase!

Gathered together it collects a hundred micro poems side by side in full-colour print editions (both hard- and softcover) and also simultaneous eBook editions (visual and poetry only), giving the reader a chance to briefly escape and dream away.

Musings from a Wildflower (print) by Kiyo-Poetry

The Micro Poetry Series

Followers of my weekly updated Literary blog, or social media, will know this series rather well as I've been sharing it for at least a year-and-a-half, but for reader's who haven't been with me for that long, here's a little more info (:

The Micro Poetry series are minimalistic poems based in origins on the art found in Japanese poetry — the way of saying so much in so little — combined with visuals from all around the globe that can take you places with just one glance. They aim to seamlessly blend words with imagery, the poetry inspired by personal philosophy, nature, daily thoughts and emotions, and have been met with wonderful comments of feeling uplifted, encouraged, or finding a moment to sit back and relax when reading them.

Artist | Professional
Kiyo is the creator of her own publications that combine imagery and words, like her illustrated art & poetry book, Dreamscape. She shares three visual poetry series online weekly; the Micro Poetry, Haiku and About Love Series. Mostly written in free-form, they are pieces inspired by nature, philosophy, day-to-day thoughts and emotions. Next to poetry, she also enjoys writing Poetic Prose in the shapes of micro fiction and short stories, her works sparked by the many facets of life, and often touched with a hint of fantasy.

On deviantART, Kiyo can also be found on her personal account, the Lady-Yume, where she uploads poetry in response to prompts, non visual versions of her personal Visual Poetry favourites, contests, collabs and other pieces.

Want to get in touch? You can find Kiyo on various social media sites, and she can always be reached at hello(at)kiyo-art(dot)com (:
