London: Yoko Ono, wife of late Beatles` star John Lennon, will publish a new poetry book nearly 50 years after her last offering.

The musician released Grapefruit, a book of "instructional poetry" in 1964, and she is now poised to offer fans a follow-up, titled Acorn, which she describes as "poetry in action with participation".

Ono reveals the book, which also features drawings, is based on her online musings.

"It`s something I originally created for the Internet. For 100 days, every day, a different instruction was communicated. Now it`s being published in book form. I`m riding a time machine that`s going back to the old ways! Great! I added my dot drawings to give you further brainwork," she said.

Acorn will be released in June.
