Mirroring the human response to the natural world, this book is a rare synthesis of stunning landscape photography and understated haiku poetry. Dianne Carroll Burdick has photographed what she sees but expressed what she feels by hand-coloring her photographic images. Linda Nemec Foster has followed the traditional form created by Japanese poets over five hundred years ago to pen elegant haiku. Together the two explore edges - ocean meeting sand, lakes meeting grass, trees meeting sky. These landscapes of color and sound will usher you into quiet, meditative spaces where you can truly listen to yourself and the environment around you.
Linda Nemec who holds an MFA from Goddard College, has taught poetry workshops throughout Michigan, USA and written six collections of poetry. In 2003 she was selected to be the first poet laureate of Grand Rapids, USA.
