Moths that Drink the Tears of Sleeping Birds


Moths That Drink the Tears of Sleeping Birds is a book of poems and short prose pieces inspired by the life and times of author John B. Lee’s mother Lillian Irene Lee nee Busteed (1925-2018). The mother of two children, she was widowed in 2004 and began to show signs of dementia a few short years after her husband’s passing. This collection of poetry is a loving portrait of a gentle yet fiercely independent woman, a celebration of a simple life of modest dreams. Sometimes melancholy, this is also a portrait of loss when loss is slow and sad and absolutely natural and necessary.
