Smorgasbord Cafe and Bookstore – New Author on the Shelves – #Poetry – Lines by Leon: Poems, Prose, and Pictures by Leon Stevens

Delighted to welcome writer, composer, guitarist, songwriter and artist Leon Stevens to the Cafe with his poetry collection, Lines by Leon: Poems, Prose, and Pictures

About the collection

Lines by Leon is a selection of poems, prose, and short stories that address the subjects of loss, struggle, and reflection. Inside these thoughtful contemplations are original observations about ego, behaviour, human relations, places, and the environment. Many of the pieces feature a lighthearted and even humorous take on a subject, and the author invites his readers to laugh, think, cry, and meditate on the wide variety of thoughts.

Scattered throughout the book are sketches of various subjects, many that relate to the poems and stories they illustrate; others speak for themselves.

One of the recent reviews for the collection on Goodreads

Mar 31, 2020 Suzanne Hare rated it Five Stars it was amazing

This collection of poems is full of whit, dry humour, creativity, a great deal of wisdom and humanity. The poems made me think, have an emotional response and soak up the common sense wisdom. I liked the positive approach and the self confidence displayed. Each line was filled with insight, whit and wisdom. I know I will reread this book as I do most of my poem collection because the simple act of reading poetry makes me grow and change as a person, so each reading is an unique experience. To me that is the true power of poetry. I really liked this set of poems.
