Kwon Cheon-hak presents a poetry collection on people, love, life, and a poetic thirst that persists into one's twilight years. This collection features Kwon's original Korean poems as well as translations that won the Min Chapbook Competition co-organized by Tamal Vista Publications and Harvard University's Korea Institute. Each poem is accompanied by a painting by artist Lee Cheong-cho. Professor Steven Cramer of Lesley University, who served on the competition's panel of judges, referred to poem "2H2 + O2 = 2H2O" as "the strongest single poem in the whole set of all submissions." Kwon won the 2010 Grand Prize in the Kyung Hee University Overseas Korean Literary Awards and the 2015 Distinguished Poetry Award from Writers International Network Canada. She also contributed to Muse for World Peace Anthology (2015), a literary collection of works by North American writers who support global peace.
