Poems, like flowers, unfold in mysterious ways. Poet Mariann Wizard's 60 personal best reveal surprising details of a complex, engaged life. Deeply personal yet readily accessible, they are by turns funny, erotic, tender, or rabble-rousing, spanning haiku, sonnets, and protest songs. Sixty of Scout Stormcloud's lushly textural photographs of flowers, trees, and other living creatures more thoroughly explore a single aspect of her art and wide-ranging interests, invoking contrasting, complementary notes from the enduring natural world in which we are but guests. Woven together in a generous, full-color volume, poems and photographs become an exuberant tapestry celebrating life in progress. Wizard and Stormcloud, who both live in Austin, Texas, were born two days apart and have been best friends for half their lives. Passionate but not sentimental, here is the work of two women on a creative roll: balanced, accomplished, and assured. 100 pages, 8.5 x 11" paperbound.
