Sinossi

Dennis M Lane was born in the monochrome days of the early sixties, deep in the industrial heartland of England. Coming of age during the Thatcher Years, the conflict that he experienced during the Steel Strike and the Teacher's Strike played a great part in his political development.

In 1986 he travelled to rural Nigeria as a volunteer teacher and this lead to a long career working in international development, which continues to this day.

He has lived in seven countries across Africa, the Caribbean and the Pacific, each country making its own impact upon him. He has finally settled in South Africa where he has now lived for eight years.

Dennis M Lane's writing ranges from poetry, which covers a variety of themes from the personal to the political, and are written in a range of styles and forms; through short stories; to longer forms. His first poetry collection “8 Million Stories” was published in November 2010 and he is currently completing his first novel “Talatu”, a Young Adult Science Fiction tale, which draws on elements of his experience in Nigeria.

Outside of his writing Dennis paints, narrates for Librivox and StarShipSofa, cooks, plays the harmonica and spends far too much time watching football.

SAMPLE POEMS FROM 8 MILLION STORIES

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Turn Of The Season

The streets billow with dust and debris.
Trees, almost bare in the late winter chill,
point accusing fingers to the sky,
while a mangy dog scratches around the shell of a car,
smelling for intruders.

From a cafe on the corner leaks the tinny echo of good times;
Brenda Fassie – Weekend Special.
Time on my hands, I stroll over to escape the high veld cold.

Inside it is warm, redolent of old oil and fresh bread.
I sit at a metal table,
the plastic cloth bright and cheerful in the gloom.
My coffee comes,
a pot of hot water
accompanied by a bowl of faded brown granules.
I'm not in Sandton now ...

Time passes slowly off the beaten track;
experience soaks into the pores rather than sparking instantly on retina.
I sip my cup of almost coffee and just breathe.
Savuka sing of a cruel, crazy, beautiful world
– to the gentle percussion of drops on steel.
I stand, pull up my collar,
and go outside to watch the dust wash away.

Transformation

The Earth turned slowly, calm, serene.
Waters covered the land.
Teeming with life, precious green,
Oceans silently spanned.

Each minute being lived its lot,
Then, dying, slowly sank.
A rain of bones gently caught,
In the vast deep dark dank.

Decades passed, and decades more.
Life from the shallows was torn.
Growing deeper on the ocean floor,
A strange transformation was born.

Countless creatures gave their all,
Till mighty hills had grown.
Bodies ordained by Earth to fall,
Transformed to sturdy stone.
