Sean Kennedy uses personal experiences to highlight common bonds

Sean Kennedy has had the rare opportunity to travel worldwide. Born in Scotland, raised in Tasmania and often visiting the Australian outback, the poet has a life-time of adventures to share. But it is in the small details that Kennedy finds the most inspiration. He shows how the innocent and ordinary moments connect us all in his poetic work “Into the Fire: Poems from Australia.”

“Into the Fire: Poems from Australia” as a poetic compilation that captures Kennedy’s various undertakings at work, home and elsewhere. Employing a diverse style of rhyme and blank verse, Kennedy’s poems foray into the ocean, the Arctic and also share insight into the vagaries of cricket.

“Into the Fire” contains a mixture of humor and psychology, that create an entertaining and informative read. Drawings accompany most poems, and a map of Australia located in the back of the book reference the various locations mentioned throughout the literary work. Kennedy also provides notes on each poem that allow additional insight and go a long way into putting the reader in the poet’s shoes.

“I’ve had the ability to see the world, but what has kept me ground is the simple things,” Kennedy said. “My goal with In the Fire is to show how everyday feelings of love, hope, anger and sadness leave us all intertwined. It is the small moments of each day that connect us.”
