Poem Made of Water
Water is a recurrent theme in poet Nancy Willard's broad landscape. This is one of many similarities she shares with the artist, whose work reflects a deep emotional response to the fluctuations of the organic world. This book evokes the relationship between the flow of language and the rich texture of vision.
