The Sky that Falls
Book Description HTML
The book is a collection of forty poems that are divided into four groups of poetic forms. The forms include villanelles, sestinas, pantoums and sonnets. Every poem tells a story and some of the poetry narrates more optimistic tales while other poems explore societal issues. Issues explored within the poems include unfaithfulness, the media, bullying, science, agriculture, adoption and more. The optimistic poems in the collection explore friendship, marriage, love, holidays, seasons and nature. The optimistic poetry contrasts the serious undertones presented within the more political poems.
