Sallie A. Hinds writes about nature and illustrates her words. She lives in the woods of East Tawas, Michigan This quality softcover book is rich with inspired observations: ...Although we're city dwellers/Our wooded lots are deep.../My kitchen view is a priceless one/And one I'm sure to keep! Bird sketches include the Saw-Whet Owl, Blue-Necked Pheasant and Nuthatch. Sallie writes in metered rhyme except when penning haiku and senryu. In this volume she cites rules for both traditional Japanese (3-line, 17-syllable) Bullfrogs are croaking/cicadas and crickets chirp/music of the night and non-traditional forms in English My beagle sleeping/twitches and whines/run rabbit, run! and Naked oak branches/gnarled and twisted/like old woman's hands.
