Of Cypress & Sunflowers by Henry Henkel

By Henry Henkel

In his moment choice of brief tales, Of Cypress & Sunflowers, Henry Henkel sends his characters on a quest for identification as they fight to make peace with the ghosts of the prior. a tender guy searches for the elusive mom who deserted him; an Italian priest is haunted through his transgressions; 3 social outcasts choose to reinvent themselves in a small Florida city; a bit boy witnesses a conflict among stable and Evil at Easter Mass; a retired Lieutenant Colonel attempts to make feel of his lonely lifestyles via a Platonic discussion along with his neighbor's visitor; a tender girl comes to a decision to provide the fellow who abandoned her a moment chance.

Henkel's tales are metaphors for the basic struggles of all humanity: the quest for real love; the desire of reprieve from loneliness and alienation; the thirst for a spot in the neighborhood; the need to appreciate one's real nature. Henkel areas those struggles in the higher context of unfastened will and the alternatives his characters make among strong and evil, belief and deception, empathy and selfishness.
