Synopses & Reviews
In this unusual collection, poems and photographs focus on shapes in nature. Some shapes are found in familiar places: A circle is the sun and a crescent is the moon. But there are imaginative surprises too: an alligatorand#8217;s tooth is a triangle
and a frondand#8217;s shadow forms a square. Related shape wordsand#151;round, halo, sphere, etc.and#151;are scattered throughout the spreads. This collaboration captures the beauty of shapes in nature in a playful way.
