Cover of Aquamarine

These poems, like an aquamarine, are transparent, iridescent, and evoke both sea and light--whether its the blinding light off a surface, or kaleidoscope images spilling like waves in the rearview mirror. They hold the various facets of joy and mourning, and the spectrum in between. --Provided by publisher.
