The Author
Davino Ribeiro de Sena is a writer deeply faithful to a past that sometimes blooms with the secret lives of people, animals and things. Considered by influential critics one of the best Brazilian poets of his generation, he walks with particular poignancy through boyhood landscapes and brings a refreshing sense to our understanding of time. His writings have the perspective of life's inevitable losses and make an impact on those who separate reality and imagination in distant files.

Davino Sena used the words sand, iron and glass to describe the process of growing old. He has a gift to find beauty in the often precarious balance between memory and dream. From the old beach house beyond recall, looking for a miracle in the endless white sand seacoast of Pernambuco, to the opulent sun painted in a wooden blue sky, here the reader will find poetry at its most memorable.
