jar To The Night is an exploration of esoteric philosophy through the author’s practice of devotional writing. It focuses upon the doctrine of metempsychosis; cyclical existence in all its forms on earth, universal sentience and the inexorable resurgence of the divine feminine.

Written within the karstic limestone landscape of the Burren, Ireland and the mountains of Spain, these poems embody a process of revelation, and its requisite response, offering.

The volume contains three poems: You Came To Me, In All Her Names And Forms, and Ajar To The Night. Sensual, spare, startling and visceral works.

“It is as if Autumn Richardson has learned the secret incantations of ancient and elemental things. Our own transient humanity is placed in a vaster context, yet through her words we also feel drawn closer to the stark, strange truths of our dark and beautiful world.”

— Mark Valentine
