My first poetry book is now available in paperback. I’m very excited about this one because it is an expression of how nature affects me on a deeper level.
Nature inspires me. I watch it wash over all of us and how we all react to it. It doesn’t matter whether it is the season or the daily weather. It affects people’s moods and attitude towards everything. It is awe inspiring and moves me regularly to put into words the affect it has on me.
In reading my poetry, you will find some rhyming poems but not too often. Generally they are more free form and less structured. I do like Haiku format which there are a few in this book. Haiku is an ironic poem with a set format. They are fun – at least I think so.
The cover for this book was shot by Suzanne Inez Jaillet-Isham. It is from one of her hiking trips down into the Grand Canyon. When she shares her photography, I get to go to places I wouldn’t normally be able to go. I truly appreciate her skills as a photographer. More of her work is on display on YouTube, just search for LilyAZ to see more of her work.
