Language and Silence by Svetlana Marisova

Language and Silence cover

Svetlana Marisova once wrote "True poetry is the expression of cosmic, organic, erotic life, creating its own forms as it springs from the depths of love. It is life expressing itself and, in being expressed, finds its voice."

Language and Silence collects her haiku and organises them in chronological order of composition as her life found its expression within the concision and suggestion that can be achieved in this verse form. That her poetry-writing life was so short does not lessen her achievement in creating ripples in the lives of others. Anyone who comes to know and appreciate the unique aesthetics of haiku will know that a haiku is never finished, merely that the poet has moved on. The reader gets to enter it where the poet exited.
