This book of “poetry and pictures“ is dedicated to people and artists, who appreciate imaginary arts of water waves, undulating like painter's brush to mirror nature's objects, resulting in vivid, lovely images of poetic sentiment.


▌Francis Cheng
Francis S Cheng holds PhD in Chemistry, and DSc in Chemical Engineering. He had postdoctoral training; worked for many industries including Exxon, Monsanto, and Vanderbilt Chemicals.
He had industrial experiences for 45 years ranging from organic additives syntheses for auto and aviation industries, high-performance poly-materials for communication and oil industries, and polyester bottles for beverage industries.
Career-wise, he had 8 publications, and 8 patents awarded.
In addition, he had 15 poetry anthologies published with Faxon-Poetry Group.
He chose retirement after suffering from hearing impairments.
Retirement meant time for break and new experience, while facing tough choice of either walking three miles daily, even suffering chronic arthritis, or succumbing to weight gain, and infirmity.
In fact, Mother Earth was best role model for guiding us to stay healthy, with daily exercise, and to avoid falling into victim of another statistic.

▌John Hsu
After taking pictures for many years. I have realized that the ideal photo-art picture is water image.
To differentiate from most other water image photos, my photos are comprised entirely of water image, in absence of real object. While this provides a vast water image of sky as outstanding background for desired composition, and creation of painting-like photo. Because water wave is like unique stroke of painter's brush.
John holds B.S. in Agricultural Chemistry and M.S. in Food Science. He had worked 32 years for the Nestle Co. as a food technologist and obtained 24 patents. He has two life-long hobbies.
One is watching baseball and the other is photography. He has published 8 baseball books in Taiwan and 1 baseball article in The New York Times.
Two of his baseball books are kept in Baseball Hall of Fame at Cooperstown in New York. He has published 8 photo books, 7 of them are water image photos. One of his photos (“Labyrinth – Goodspeed Opera House”) won the Best Photography Award at New Britain Museum of American Art. He had 23 solo exhibitions in Connecticut.
