Barley Fields

A love story written in verse

A romantic and gentle love story told using poetry.

Told in poetic verse, this full length novel unfolds against a backdrop of rolling farmlands and looming mountains in the rural countryside of old Korea.

She is small yet
vibrant, childhood gone and her
chest swelling beneath well-mended jeogori, a jacket 
threadbare of palest blue,
that she cannot keep clean.
His dark head bows
as dreams of deep night
seep
from his head, and heart
leaving spaces that nothing
else
fills.

A quiet tale of love, family and finding your true home in a vast frightening world.
