A poet, an artist, and a musician have conspired to create a poetry book of unusual beauty and depth. Seaward Skyward contains poems written by Polly Bradley, many inspired by the changing moods of the ocean. The poems are complemented by drawings, especially of shells, and cover design by Jackie Diehl Singer. In addition, the book has a sprinkling of songs with words by Polly and music by Joseph W. Stoddard, Jr. Both lyrics and score are included in the book. Written for and dedicated to family and friends, the poems in Seaward Skyward range from mystical to humorous, from songs to sonnets, from intimate to universal. A major theme is the linking of the two realms of science and the arts, which Polly, a long-time environmental activist, views as an artificial distinction. A resident of Nahant, Massachusetts, surrounded by the sea, Polly writes, "Survival requires seashore skills, Withstanding mindless hurricane shock - Clever, watchful hermit crab scurrying, Strength of barnacle glued to rock."
