This beautiful gathering of contemporary lyric poems by best-selling author and poet Luci Shaw celebrates both the profundity and fun in the presence of water on earth. Water Lines includes sixty-four new and selected poems by Shaw, all reflecting the evocative nature of water in its many forms. The steady hush of falling rain, the white noise of a waterfall, the glittering sounds of a fountain, of ripples washing against rocks in a clear northern lake, of a surging mountain stream--Shaw shows how each of these watery wonders refreshes the ear and eye, and from there penetrates the soul. As with all her poetry on creation, Shaw sees the invisible, thinks the universal, and finds in the natural world superb metaphors for human life. "I think it's the fluidity of water-- the way it constantly renews itself--that reminds me of the possibility, and the need, for change and renewal." Water Lines gently captures water's effects on our senses and emotions and illumines its persistent reality as a blessing from the Creator's hand to every living creature. Filled with unforgettable images and insights, Water Lines is a book to cherish for a lifetime.
