Voice Like Water

Image of Deanna Nikaido's second book Voice Like WaterWord of Mouth Press announces the publication of Voice Like Water a collection of poetry by Deanna Nikaido. Voice Like Water is the picturesque movement of a voice both in search of and in dialogue with itself. This passionate collection is a poetic conversation, a string of unembellished moments passing through the fingers like beads or drops of water. Included inside the book is a selection of poems on CD read by the author whose contemplative voice draws the listener both into and beyond the page. Whether you are a newcomer or a veteran to poetry, hearing its recitation is an experience of language in it’s most concentrated form.

“"You are drawn into this book from the introduction. Nikaido conducts a beautiful music with powerful, commanding words which surprise and grab you. Against that score, she matches the ordinary with the spiritual, creating intelligent, deep, passionate, eloquent poetry."”
