The quilts were beautiful, lushly textured with vivid colors and interesting, eye-catching composition, and while I loved many of the poems---particularly those representing peace as a moment on a river or a stillness beneath noise---I thought some of them were a little preachy. Sure, you can view a snake making friends with his dinner as peace, but think how absolutely unpeaceful it would be if every snake made friends with the mice and rats he was supposed to eat. Peace is a little more multi-faceted than simply no violence, no conflict, no anger. I would've liked to see a few more poems to reflect that.
