If water breathes follows a spiritual seeker through and across Buddhist, Hindu, Greco-Roman, Muslim, Judaic, astrophysical, and Christian cosmologies. In these poems, each moment is ripe with the future it heralds, and the poet lives as witness to the movement of time through love, loss, and longing. Desire remembers, constellates today, and foreshadows tomorrow, while both nature and the word gesture toward a salutary beyond.

Monika Hope Lee is an English professor at Brescia University College in London, Ontario. She is the author of gravity loves the body: poems by monika lee (2008); skin to skin (2016); Slender Threads (2004); a play called The Petting Zoo; the libretto of an opera called The Maker; Shelley’s Impact on Rousseau: Figuring the Written Self (1999); and dozens of peer-reviewed essays on literature. Her poems have appeared in journals and anthologies worldwide.
