About the Book

In the ups and downs of life, for me the writing of a poem allows breakthrough, deeper understanding, and celebration or acceptance of a situation. I love sensing a poem taking shape in my head. This causes me to stop, listen, and write down what is there. I live more fully when I can express a situation, a scene, an emotion by writing a poem. Japan is the only place abroad I have visited, and it has provided several poems as well as the title of this book. Komorebi is my favorite Japanese word. Find out why as you navigate the poetry of my life.

“Her poems are vivid images evoking God’s intersection with our lives. They bring us needed respite in a world of wounds.”

—Jane Kirkpatrick, New York Times bestselling author of All Together in One Place.

“Gail Box Ingram is a poet after my own heart. The world is more beautiful with poetry, and especially Gail’s. Her imagery is rare, and combined with her appreciation for the human struggle and humanity period, I am proud to call her a fellow-poet.”

—Laura Harris Smith, #1 bestselling author of Seeing the Voice of God: What God is Telling You Through Dreams and Visions (2014)

About the Author

An Alabama native, I graduated from David Lipscomb College and Baptist Hospital School of Medical Technology in Nashville, Tennessee. Being a Christian wife, mother, grandmother, friend, medical technologist, artist, seamstress, creative cook, letter writer, gardener, and (when I have time) an avid reader, I thank God for the gift of writing. Poetry has been a love of mine forever, my first poem being written at fourteen. Poetry for me is like light shining through trees.
