Poetry Friday is hosted today by Merely Day By Day.
Singer takes her readers on an around-the-world tour to experience the full moon. New York, Morocco, Hong Kong and even the International Space Station provide opportunities to learn about the moon's cultural and scientific significance and influence on earth and its inhabitants. Lyrical descriptions range across the globe from a harvest in Iowa to coral spawning in the Caribbean, from a lunar optical illusion in Australia to a camel fair in India.
Additional information includes world maps to identify locations and illustrations of the moon's phases in the North and South hemispheres.
Caims' colorful illustrations reflect and enhance the simplicity and joy of Singer's verses.
