(Entertainment-NewsWire.com, December 07, 2021 ) “Writing poetry is therapy,” author David Twitchell explains. “It’s a way to unwind—to take my mind off a work-a-day world. It allows me to see more than what is right in front of me. There are metaphors and allegories everywhere. Gardens, like orchards or vineyards, are particularly rich with meaningful metaphors.”
An introvert at heart who has never shared much of his writing, David has been surprised and overwhelmed by the strong resonance and vulnerability that this little book of poetry seems to bring out in complete strangers. One reviewer summed it up best:
“David’s organic prose feeds the soul with the flavor and texture of healthful goodness and mystery. He is quick-witted and a master in touching the inner chord with resonant images that, at first blush, stir the imagination then settle in philosophical eloquence. With the timing of a maestro and a lyrical quality, his poetry entertains, is provocative, accessible, vibrant and multifaceted. You may find epiphanies that spring to the mind hours or even days after reading a poem, as I have. His poetry has strong roots in the metaphorical and spiritual, yet is grounded in the common seeds of experience.”
