Poetry Friday

Poetry Friday is hosted today by The Poem Farm.
For Poetry Friday -- "Earthshake; Poems From The Ground Up" by Lisa Westberg Peters with pictures by Cathie Felstead.
Peters lets geology inspire her 22 verses in this collection that is intended as entertainment rather than science lessons.  Nevertheless, sparkling bits of information sprinkle the poetic creations. Peters shares her passion for a wide range of geological topics -- from the power of volcanoes and continental drift to the delicate crystals hidden in the heart of a geode or the story in a fossil clam.
Felstead's imaginative art work varies from poem to poem capturing the essence of the verse and hinting at the geology underlying the words.

This would be fascinating to pair with nonfiction texts and/or current events about the recent quakes/aftershocks in CA.
