Chimezie mekaowulu | 2 comments The poetry is written in a variety of forms, but it all, even without the illustrations, paints vivid pictures. For example, in "Good Heavens," Hines describes dandelions on the lawn as "...a thousand suns / and then / a thousand moons / that with a puff / of wind become / a hundred thousand stars." This visual imagery is brilliantly captured in the accompanying quilt. Bright yellow hexagons rest on a lawn of green, with white hexagons moving skyward where white stars shine brightly against the dark blue sky
