Review

Much has been said about Yoko Ono, but I quite enjoyed the simplicity of this poetry collection. The straightforward instruction pieces force you to slow down and examine the world around you in a new way--a way that is somehow less complicated but more profound. The pointillism sketches provide a soothing complement. This work is full of peace and hope. One particular line stayed with me long after I finished reading Acorn:  “Watch the sun/ until it comes into your body/ and stays as a tiny sun.”
