After finalizing the cover poem "Tortoise," a Shakespearean sonnet, the author began to ponder, "Is he a Christian, Muslim or a Buddhist? Maybe he is a preacher, imam, rabbi, or a monk. What would be your guess?" (You can read "Tortoise" in the description of the Kindle version, or please visit the following link to read "Tortoise": www.nourish.com/tortoise). In this book, the author imagines himself to be these animals to tell their stories. The speakers of every poem are these animals themselves: thoroughbred, pig, sheep, reindeer, sea otter, penguin, clown fish, raccoon, rhino, cheetah, piranha, electric eel, cashmere goat, elk, mink, the list goes on, 38 land and 19 water animals in total. At the end, if you look into their eyes and listen to their avowals, you may start to sympathize with the bullfrog, spider, laughing hyena, scorpion, Asian sheepshead wrasse; admire the pygmy marmoset's Lilliput, the payara's attitude and be alarmed by the puffer fish. The author was awakened by them, maybe you will too.
