City of Coloured Lights
by Silver O'City

CITY O F COLOURED LIGHTS is a collection of poetry by Silver O’City written over several years. The poems are appealing to a wide range of readers. O’City’s writing is fast-paced and colourful. He employs various techniques of poetry writing. O’City’s poems cover many themes including Love and romance, politics, Spirituality/Christianity, family and daily events of human living. O’City is a keen observer of nature and human life everywhere he travels and lives. Some of the poems are unapologetically in your face while others are parabolic in nature and requires the readers to think a little deeper. This first book of poetry by O’City is engaging, intelligent and an easy to read poems that I enthusiastically recommend to all readers who enjoy fresh and unique international poetry.
