Planting Gardens on the Moon

Written by Aliyah Jackson

Illustrated by Karen Burton

Planting Gardens on the Moon is the first full length poetry collection by Aliyah Jackson. It centers around themes of depression, isolation, and the uncertainties behind the refuge in religion, spirituality and interpersonal relationships.

In Planting Gardens on the Moon, Aliyah Jackson tills the fertile soil of her experiences, her fears, and the quiet that eludes her mind to expose it to the light. With no words wasted, each poem is like its own vignette where you are sure to find the details of your own journey.”

Esteban Colon, ’18-’19 Kenosha Poet Laureate, Author of Hell Creek and Things I Learned the Hard Way
