At the heart of poetry lies the desire to belong - to a place, a space, a country. Our experiences of the spaces we inhabit shape our identities and define the contours of our lives. In this collection of poems, we explore the varied and complex emotions that arise from our relationship with the spaces we inhabit.

Sometimes, a place is a dream we strive to achieve, a refuge from pain, or the lingering scent of a lost love. Space can be many things at different times in our lives. This eclectic and diverse collection brings together the voices of poets from all corners of the world, each offering a unique perspective on the theme of space.

Through the kaleidoscope of words in this collection, readers will be taken on a journey to worlds they love to explore. From free verse to rhyme and rhythm, these poems are a mosaic of styles and techniques that come together to create a rich tapestry of human experience.

Whether you’re searching for a sense of belonging, a moment of reflection, or simply a chance to lose yourself in the beauty of language, this collection offers something for everyone. So come along on a journey through the poetry of place, and discover the many ways in which space shapes our lives and our hearts.
