Synergy of Image and Verse.
A photograph is worth a thousand words. Poetry paints word pictures using poetic imagery. On their own, they each are 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 image, and from it, poetry flows to dance and enhance the whole upon the page. Images from the eye of a photographer that translate to the mind of the poet. The wonder here is that both are the same. The photographer is the poet.
Poetry is often written, but rarely explained. Here the author not only writes wonderful verse, but takes the pains to disclose the underlying techniques. Readers can find a new appreciation as never before.
Here is an excerpt from Poem Number #16, Goldfinches Feeding:
Those golden birds with golden song
Flew in to eat sunflower seed,
Bright feathers flashing color creed
Of deepest hue to come along
