“The poetry of Katie Lewington has just only recently come to my attention, and her simple, observational, and honest poems pulled me right in. Her new chapbook “Here Comes the Sun” is filled with those things that I look for in poetry and writing in general, descriptions of people and places, travels, food, etc. The ordinary things that sensitive folks (and poets especially) find so endearing. I can’t wait to read more of Lewington’s work!” Nicholas Trandahl, author of Pulling Words.
Grab a drink, and your shades, and read HERE COMES THE SUN: TRAVEL POETRY WRITTEN BY KATIE LEWINGTON. Experience the thrill of summer, and travel with me through Europe, without needing to move from your seat, standing in airport baggage queues, cobbled streets, sandy beaches, and tourist shops. Raw and real are the words often used to describe Katie Lewington’s work. Here comes the Sun uses simple language in the poems that were written whilst travelling in the summer of ’16. Some of the poems make good use of brevity, while others, such as Wi-Fi, are written in a prose style of writing. There is contemplation among the hilarity as the seasons change, summer turns to winter, and the nights become colder.
