SYNERGY OF IMAGE AND VERSE ... Poetry and photography blend together beautifully in this author's presentation. They say that a photograph is worth a thousand words, but poetry paints word pictures using poetic imagery. On their own, each is exquisite. Combined they become something else - a powerful composition that blends the best of both, that is what happens in this book. The author is inspired by the photographic image, and from it poetry flows to dance and enhance the whole upon the page. Images from the eye of the photographer then translate to the mind of the poet. The wonder here is that both are the same. The photographer is the poet. In addition, the poet provides detailed incite to the poem's structural format. This book contains several different poetic formats, not just one. The explanations give poetry lovers and budding poets a deeper appreciation of the genre. So the appeal is to lovers of photography, poetry, and students alike.
