Wind Bells, by Jessica Dimalibot
“The enchantment of emotions through solace and destruction” True to the author’s belief, we are souls living in human bodies that are destined to be on earth to experience, to feel, and to learn. Wind Bells is a book that speaks of humanness. It is a bilingual poetry collection written with English and Tagalog (Filipino language) interpretations. From a journey of unrequited love, into the light and happy tones of affection, up to the aspirations and inadequacies of a person who gradually learned how to love one’s self — we the readers discover the ability to value compassion even more. This stunning debut collection by the Filipino poet Jessica Perez Dimalibot gives us insight into a diferent and magical world, one in which we witness first love, hope, and home in a brilliant new light.
