La Vie en Poème
by Allison Jane Gonsalves

Life is filled with twists, turns, and powerful emotions that can all be captured in the space of a single poem. Reading poetry enables us to connect to the feelings and experiences we share as part of the human condition. La Vie en Poème invites readers to connect to those shared experiences and to ourselves. By turns playful, jubilant, poignant, and sombre, this collection of illustrated poems reflects on love, loss, and healing; the natural world; spirituality; and life’s journey of self-discovery. Gonsalves’ vibrant yet delicate images complement her verses, adding to the rich sensory experience of this book. Through its use of diverse subject matter, poetic forms, and images, La Vie en Poème encourages us to celebrate the beauty in all aspects of our lives.
