KIRKUS REVIEW

Atwood's pseudo-haiku forms (her words are simply poeticized descriptions in the prescribed number of syllables) are here applied to things that move--among them leaves in a ""fluttering breeze,"" skid boards in the surf, ""crowds of clouds,"" a kite, ""geese goose-stepping,"" and leaves ""dizzily waltzing in the autumn wind."" Her accomplished photos could be ads for Kodachrome--or for a seaside vacation spot--and there are some dazzling water-surface ripples. (""Banners on the bridge--/ ducks and bright reflections/swim in the water."") But despite the theme of motion, the visual beauty is all upfront and the words tend to calcify the subjects.
