The Twelve Senses A Book of Poems by David Donaldson


Our senses—the means by which we come to experience the world around and within us.
But why twelve and not five? Because viewing the world through five senses alone misses much of what we actually sense and experience.

The twelve senses presented here give us a far more rounded picture of who we are. It's an expanded perspective that equips us to understand the world better—to “see into the life of things,” as Wordsworth put it— and to be better prepared to see our way through the challenges and opportunities of the digital age.
