If & When We Wake by Francis Daulerio & Scott Hutchison
What happens when you pair a poet and a thriving singer-songwriter together? You get the marriage of intellect, artistry and a damn good book in your hands."If & When We Wake" is the product of winters and springs. It has been buried under snowpack, thawed, cultivated, scorched by the sun, and buried yet again.
The result is a book of poetry and art that shines light on the desperation, helplessness, and loss that everyone feels, and tries to find the beauty of acceptance and growth. It examines the necessity of finding meaning in life after experiencing death.
This collection is an attempt to crack back through the ice and rip out a life that emits a light and a heat. It is the woods. It is the grass poking up between toes and tiny bits of soil underneath fingernails. It is alive, and it will sprout and grow.“Beautiful thoughts from a quiet head” – Atlantic Records“A gorgeous, thoughtful book” – Whiskey and Armchairs
In this updated second edition of IF & WHEN WE WAKE, Francis Daulerio pens a heartfelt introduction honoring the late artist and musician, Scott Hutchison.

Fran's poetry creates a tangible and oddly comforting contrast of the springs and winters of life. He has a way of examining ideas and life from a different vantage point than that of conventional wisdom but still evoking emotions of a universal, shared experience. You'll enjoy this, I guarantee it. Or my next review is free of charge.
Have you ever wondered what a fiddlehead feels when it pushes itself up through the sun to reach the warm embrace of the sun? Francis Daulerio's poetry collection will. Daulerio's poetry delicately presses through the soil and is born right before your eyes, each page turn another reach for warmth. I am impressed and awed by this book.
