Ordering: A Season in My Garden
ISBN: 0963518550

Higganum Hill Books. 2003

"In this collection of poetry, power and the heavy hand of a society gone mad with technological overload and informational glut are woven into quiet poetical ruminations captured within the walls of a garden. Each flower and the soil itself is used to explore, uncover, dissect, and evaluate a dimension of the world beyond the garden walls. The politics of academics, the meaningless hustle of the urban scene, and the scurrying of a time-enslaved society are brutally examined under the guise of simple descriptions of flora."

Pearl's Book'em Publisher. 2003

Introductions is author Kenneth Pobo's way of showing that storytelling is only half of the story. He helps readers understand that there are always two sides to every story. Through his exploration of various colorful characters, Pobo helps the reader to understand the surrounding world, and gives hope that once people understand what motivates other people, perhaps all can live harmoniously in today's society. With the current state of world affairs, a book like this that offers hope of peace and acceptance will be well received by people from all walks of life.
