Poetry Friday



Poetry Friday is hosted today by The Poem Farm.

My selection is "Canyon" by Eileen Cameron with illustrations by Michael Collier.  

 

The power of water, the relentless mechanism of erosion, and the grandeur that can be created by the forces of change are depicted in lyrical free verse and stunning photography. Cameron leads readers on a poetic adventure following the first tentative wisps of falling snow on mountain tops, down swift running streams, and on to the thundering power of the Colorado River as it sculpts canyons that become stunning geological wonders.

 

Collier's gorgeous color photography compliments the text and features differing perspectives that invite the reader to contemplate the extraordinary beauty of our natural world.

 


The book concludes with a map that illustrates the location of the various scenes.

I am so fascinated by erosion. We have a water drop crater on our porch!

Happy National Poetry Month!
