Each of the sea creatures are portrayed through alluring images, clever metaphors, and the wide-eyed wonderment of a Miyazaki film. In fact, some of the most enticing delights within Water Sings Blue are the connections made between the underwater inhabitants and images within our own world. For example, an octupus's ink is a writer's autograph, a blue whale's belly is an orbiting planet, and, in my favorite piece writing, a jellyfish is a "prim bell jar with ruffled rim." Some of the simplest images carry the longest echo, such as the description of a shipwreck that is compared to "the bones of twenty trees lost far from home." With its brisk pace, nuanced humor, and imagery that flows in rippling patterns and spellbound mystery, Water Sings Blue is a watercolored journey that swims through tones of nursery rhymes, fairy tales, and lullabies.
