The Charm of Time

by James Chapados

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
The poems in this book capture life's moments of discovery, life's beginnings and endings. They offer reflections of time and place as vessels that hold our hopes and disappointments. They attempt to capture the daunting beauty of the inevitable changes life compels us to face. They are about how certain moments in time charm us. They give definition to our world and they shape the meaning of our lives.
In this book James Chapados gives us poems that act as prisms, taking the white light of the everyday sun and separating it into the bright colored moments of the day. These are poems about the risks and choices people face that determine the arc of a person's life. They offer glimpses into the turmoil of unintended consequences. They give voice to the courage and resolve people show when they confront the truth of who they are. His poetry opens a window to see the transience of life and the beauty found in the hopes and sorrows of life's changes. He gives us the opportunity to use the experience of others to ask and answer questions about our own choices and our own sense of purpose, meaning, and place.
