Alan J Wright provides poetry for wide audience with new book.
‘Searching For Hen’s Teeth’ gives poet’s insight into life journey
– Alan J Wright has been writing poetry since he was a teenager. He tells others, “Poetry is my oxygen.” In his new poetry collection, “Searching For Hen’s Teeth” (published by Balboa Press AU), he has brought together the variety of forms his poetry has taken over the years. Australia
“This book is a collection of poetry aiming to celebrate the power of poetry to convey a myriad of emotions and ideas,” Wright says. “It serves as a practical example for teachers, librarians and parents that poetry is an ever-expanding genre and a powerful source of inspiration that deserves to be shared with children.”
Humor and irony appear throughout Wright’s poetry. He touches on the ideas of success and failure as individuals grow, both physically and emotionally. “Searching For Hen’s Teeth” represents Wright’s observations as he has journeyed through key stages of life.
“Poetry is eternal, ageless,” Wright says. “It should always be accessible.”
An excerpt from “Searching For Hen’s Teeth”:
“The world needs its poets to each play a part
Let the words ring out
Let the poet inside you sing
People are poets
Only a poet can colour the wind”
“Searching For Hen’s Teeth: Poetry from the Search Zone”
