Format: Hardcover
The Green Earth: Poems Of Creation is a volume of free-verse poetry that celebrates nature and growing things. The warm, sparkling lines resonate in the joy of life and an abiding faith in God the Creator and his wondrous gifts. Overleaf: After a breathless dawn the wind blows free,/upturns the silver poplar leaves. They glance,/pale faces, restless, up and down the tree./Life poplar leaves, the words within me dance,/but does some secret hope pervade my heart?/And might I be content for youth to play its part,/then reach its nadir at the end of Fall?//Perhaps my words glisten against their will./Soon, will their transient luster turn to yellow--/a gold, translucent foil -- enough to fill/the cracks of footpath, hill, and rock hollow?/Come Fall, word-weary minds dream of recess--/the lightness, and the light, of leaflessness.

As usual with Luci Shaw, this is a rich journey into everyday scenes dripping with rich colors of paint, aromas, clanking with sounds, tastes of all kinds of food, and touches that are always spot-on. Let the river of wind carry you into the world of your senses as you see the seasons as never before.

Luci's poems are like tiny drops of water, encapsulating a distilled lens on the natural world. The lovely cover illustration and smaller hardcover size completes the gem.
