TRANQUILITY. TRANSFORMATION. TRANSCENDENCE.
STEP AWAY FROM OUR BUSY, NOISY, CHAOTIC WORLD AND INTO A SPACE OF PAUSE, GROWTH, AND SPLENDOR.
Emotional and sensual, nature and poetry alike evoke feelings from deep within our souls. Walk through nature and all our senses come alive from the aroma of fragrant blossoms and decaying leaves to the caress of gentle breezes and gusts of sleet against our cheeks.
This is the way of poetry, as well. And when the two are blended, nature dances to the music of poetry. Every syllable, every breath, and every image are to be savored and allowed to prompt joy, contemplation and intrigue.
Grab a cup of tea, glass of lemonade or wine and cozy up with this book. Tranquility, transformation, and transcendence is what Mary K. Doyle insists you will find when strolling through the 72 poems and photos inspired by the natural treasures found in three Chicago suburban public gardens--Cantigny Park in Wheaton, The Morton Arboretum in Lisle, and Chicago Botanic Garden in Glencoe. An enchanting oasis awaits you.
