Lines by Leon: Poems, Prose, and Pictures by Leon Stevens

A sweetly exotic collection filled with understanding, perception, melancholy, and hope…

Stevens offers a glimpse into his visionary inner world in this beautiful collection of poems, prose, and short stories. Demonstrating a sharp wit, he keenly observes how perception shapes one’s understanding of life in “On Sports” and “Life (What Really Matters)”. In “Humor,” “Silence,” and “My Response,” Stevens explores conviction and self-assurance in subtly beautiful ways. “The Little Things” celebrate trivial, small moments that provide genuine happiness whereas “Daily Affirmation” explores insecurities and self-doubts. Most of the poems are constructed in very brief lines interjected by a more flowing digression, as in “A Shadow” where he writes: “You are a shadow / Always attached to me / The only escape is to jump high / Yet we always become connected / As I cannot hang onto the sky”. The somber black and white chalk illustrations precisely reflect the collection’s solemn mood. Documenting a lust for life, this short collection is a treat for poetry lovers.
