The Ocean’s Way Poetry Companion

The Ocean’s Way Poetry Companion


Enjoy a day at the beach as we walk through sand, jump the waves, hear sea birds calling to each other as sea creatures seek food and shelter in a wondrous, hidden ocean biome.

This book can stand alone or act as a companion to my middle grade fiction ebook, “The Ocean’s Way” which tells the story of eleven year old Holly’s learning experience with marine life in Florida. A sample chapter appears after the Glossary.

This collection of 37 unrhymed poems (anagram, diamante, tanka) about ocean-related topics  is classified and organized alphabetically and supported by beautiful color photographs for visual clarity.

An extensive Glossary contains definitions, parts of speech and a pronunciation guide.
