“Write on the sand,
keep only the words left by the tide.”
“Arianna Dagnino sets off to sea with a mighty roar, invocating freedom as she heads straight into turbulent winds and crashing waves, which are inevitable when you sail against the current. In her journey along these seascaped horizons, she draws you in with her lyrical and vivid poetry, painting a picture of the beauty of life and the simple perfection of nature. This is the kind of poetry I love and Arianna Dagnino delivers. ” (Mark Lipman, poet, editor, Vagabond Books)
:The sea speaks to us as the sorceress "drowns within herself.” Emotions and sensory impressions silence the train of thoughts. Only a few lines remain – written on the waves.” (Paolo Gambi, founder of Poetry Renaissance)
“These precise and under-stated poems in Seaborn Eyes have a universal allure that is irresistible. As poignant as messages in the sand.” (Alan Twigg, BC BookWorld)
“When Arianna Dagnino, an intelligent essay writer and insightful novelist, unravelled her poetic papyrus, I drank the salty seas she had travelled, and marvelled at how she found sweetness where bitterness reigns, light where no light shines. This world of oxymorons is the only place to find the solace she offers her readers with such mastery.” (Antonio D’Alfonso, writer and poet)
