Klaus Nordby sees the world through the eyes of an expert graphic designer, photographer and visual artist. He sees a world of light and shadow, black and white, bright and dark and, above all, a vivid spectrum of color. In "Poems Green Purple Blue Red," his perceptual clarity serves him well as a poet.
In this collection of 56 poems, written over the span of more than two decades, the silliness of Green, the depths of Purple, the sadness of Blue and the amorousness of Red are wryly, thoughtfully, mournfully and passionately depicted. With words used as brushstrokes, each poem is a subtly painted landscape, as envisioned by a man who has mastered the skill of seeing the world through his own eyes.
