ESPERANCE, N.Y. (PRWEB) April 23, 2014
Author Bernadette Bland says she has always desired to write about beautiful things and dreamy visualizations.
Her poetry book, “Flights of Fancy: A Book of Poetry, Prose, and Imaginative Short Stories” (published by iUniverse), contains these dazzling visions in lyrical form.
Bland’s poetry is filled with evocative images that bring readers deeper into her world.
She imagines being on a mountain top on a warm spring day, experiencing the thrill of a sports car racing down a lonely highway and points out the beauty of the natural world.
“It is different than the average story,” Bland says of her work. “It can be about human kindness, or nothing at all except a dream. People may relate to one or two of the dream type visualizations because they are not out of the realm of reality.”
An excerpt from “Flights of Fancy”:
“Imagine … Getting lost in the simple, soulful breath of the Native American flute … or mesmerized by the echoing lonesome wail of a distant train … or meditating in a great and silent forest, captivated in the harmonies of ‘Mother Earth’ Nature.”
