a River of Small Stones
by Keith Wallis
About the Book
'a river of stones' was a project curated by Fiona Robyn and Kaspa.
They define a 'small stone' as a polished moment of paying proper attention. The challenge being to produce a 'stone' a day for a month.
The poems in this book were written through January 2011, although the photographs used as inspiration for them were, in the main, taken during 2010.
Keith Wallis set up a dedicated blog for his 'small stones' with the intention of adding a stone to that river occasionally thereafter.
Keith Wallis is an English poet and photographer who combines both to produce work that touches the emotions. He began submitting work for publication in the 1980’s. The small press magazines and anthologies of that era used his poetry and graphic work. Four small booklets followed: Wordsculptures Marketplace of Masks Real Tears and Crocodile Smiles Concrete Womb Joining Christianwriters.com in 2005 (and subsequently becoming a moderator) re-energised his writing. Recently work has been published by: RootsWorship, EveryDayPoets, PoetryMonthly International, Word Catalyst Magazine, The Cypress Times, Christian Poet's Pen, Perpetual Magazine, Bewildering Stories and he is 'Poet in Residence' at Ruby e-zine. blog: http://wordsculptures-keith.blogspot.com/
