Using in a unique style of storytelling that sets the tone for the book, the first entry tells a bench’s 60 year history in six stanzas of 100 words each.
For the imaginative reader who loves words and appreciates variety, The Bench includes something for everyone whether you’re seeking the powerfully evocative, the unabashedly strange or simply wish to be entertained.
Take a break on a bench, a bus, or anyplace. Relax. Ignite your senses.
You never know whom you’ll meet.
A man might enthrall you with his life story or a thoroughly modern vampire might regale you with his stand up comedy routine.
Cast your eyes to the garden and explore the magical colours of love between a flower and a butterfly.
Better yet, tune into the person standing just outside your peripheral vision reciting poetry and concentrate, you may hear the lingering strands of the last dance, or a symphony in words.
Original, concisely woven storytelling, that at the end allows your mind to conjure up its own images, interpretations and conclusions.
The collection contains ten colour photographs by the author.
