Apples from the Soul
Apples from the Soul is a collection of poems and pictures by then 84-year-old Eastern Cape artist Wendy Barker.
Wendy discovered her talent for poetry when the presenter at a life-skills seminar she attended some years ago placed a basket of apples on the table and said: “Write a poem about these.”
As Wendy says: “The Floodgates opened!”
Wendy has produced a collection of short poems which range from the deep and dark to bright and sunny pieces about life, children, animals and people – there is even a tribute “To Oprah”!
Every poem in the collection is beautifully and whimsically illustrated by Wendy herself! Her first love and huge talent is art and painting.
