Book Review

Picnic, lightning


I turn to Picnic, Lightning often when I want to give my mood a little picnic. Written by U.S. Poet Laureate, Billy Collins, this is one of my favorite poetry books. He has the most delightful way of making ordinary life events a pleasurable moment of reflection. Drawing you into the scene, he carries you along until you 'arrive'—surprised, but with a smile on your face.
