The Butterfly’s Choice shines on you and won’t let go of something deep inside until you shine back.

The Butterfly’s Choice is a thrilling voyage across shifting sands of time. In this third book of her poetry, you become aware of the power of an international language harnessed creatively by a bilingual user and its dexterous employment in the hands of an accomplished writer.

“Why am I the air for the world’s lungs?” Joanna Kurowska searches and yearns 
for an answer. With imagery so beautiful and poems so moving, her poetry emerges 
and takes flight, like a butterfly, with a spirit and intellect that touches the soul like
no other. The best book of poetry I’ve read in a long time.
