Blue Garden gets its name from the view the astronauts had of planet Earth from dark space. They saw a strikingly lonely, beautiful “blue garden.” The book is composed of four interconnected parts. The first, “Garden of Silence,” reflects on the specific, subtle shades of everlasting meaning that permeates silence. This part consists of fourteen poems, all relating to one prose piece. The next two parts, “Garden of Light” and “Garden of Shade,” strive to explore human virtues and then our vices. Using the method of hyb-writing, each of twenty-four poems is followed by a short, corresponding prose companion. Some of these diverse stories are based on factual events, others are mostly fiction, some even science-fiction. The fourth part, “Mediterranean Gardens,” touches on concepts of beauty and joy, hailing the creative powers of the great unknown.

Blue Garden is a charitable project in the form of a book. All royalties from this volume go to the Leprosy Mission Canada, helping to cure leprosy in children. Early leprosy is perfectly curable. If fifty-two people buy it, together they give back a normal life to that child. It could be as simple as that…
