"Feeling like fire
and a slow descend into ashes
Yura Sapi means "Tree Roots" in Runashimi, also known as Kichwa, an Indigenous Andean language of current day Ecuador. Yura carries this legacy and through this book offers our immense gratitude to the Trees and their exchange with us.
This book was put together in 2019 using drawings of trees Yura Sapi encountered on their decolonizing journey of 2018-2019. They drew these trees while writing "Poems of a Quest for Liberation from the Cages of Colonization" and "Love Poems for Healing," channelled intuitive writings meant to provide us information we need in today's present moment on Earth. TREES uses excerpts from all Yura's books including "Poemas del Alma" and the new edition, "Age of Aquarius."
Yura Sapi speaks of their poetry coming as a messenger from other dimensions and timelines, sent to help us all.
