These haiku-like poems arise out of Kenneth Steven’s perception of the Iona landscape. They have the sense of wonder, seeing, and being in the moment that many of us experience when spending time on this jewel-like island in a turquoise sea.
Iona has been Kenneth’s spiritual home since his childhood. He even learned to walk on one of the island’s beaches. He sometimes fears that there may be no more hidden corners to find, but there always are.
His poetry collection Iona – first published in 2000 – remains one of his best-known books, although he is also a writer of novels, short stories and children’s books.
