Summary/Abstract: The book illustrates the poet's meeting with the reader and the poetic worlds they have created. It includes interpretations of poems written by artists biographically linked to Upper Silesia and the Dąbrowa Basin. They are connected not only by a common experience of place, but also by common themes: longing for the "little homeland", family peace, home (Florian Śmieja, Jan Darowski, Stanisław Horak, Tadeusz Różewicz), sincere expression of thoughts, emotions, de-sires, fears, disappointments over the most difficult matters (such as: homeland, politics, truth, woman) or attempts to tame death (Edward Zyman, Marian Kisiel, Jerzy Szymik), epiphany/metaphysics of words (Jerzy L. Woźniak, Tadeusz Sławek, Andrzej Szuba).
