About this title


Peaceful poetry accompanied by elegant paintings capture life's quiet moments and serene pleasures, such as a starfish spreading its arms or moonlight making a checkerboard on a brick wall.

From Kirkus Reviews:

The late poet lists quiet things--``Invisible writing of butterflies''; ``Bare feet on the dewy grass at dawn''; ``Moonlight making a checkerboard on a brick wall''; etc.--more like notes for a poem than a finished work, since the language isn't especially evocative and choices such as stars, snow, milkweed, or giraffes aren't particularly unusual. Still, this small addition to a distinguished oeuvre can be used as a concept-extender or as inspiration for similar lists, while the words benefit from Hamanaka's visualization: spare, boldly rendered compositions, glowing with luminosity and richly saturated color.
