An exquisite collection that will appeal to a wide audience, Seven Centers by Paul Tait is an enjoyable read. The poems are short and free, and infused with a life of their own. The style is unique and the tone is poignant. I enjoyed the diction, accessible and easy for the ordinary reader. The lines are beautifully composed with punctuation that is accomplished to great poetic and dramatic effect. Readers will find poems that tell a story, others that just capture powerful emotions, and others that deliver the author’s judgement on life. Overall, they are pearls that will warm the reader’s heart, remind them of some of the precious moments in life, and plunge them into a world where life speaks to them.
Seven Centers features a variety of themes, but it is the author’s perception of life that particularly caught my attention and the way he looks at human encounters. The writing is rhythmic and the use of the first person allows the reader to share the author’s experiences and their worldview. I enjoyed the poems and often felt like some were just teasers, because they left me wanting more. Some of the poems are emotionally charged, some are mere observations of reality from the person’s viewpoint, while others are just brilliant thoughts expressed in an excellent style. Paul Tait is a great poet with a unique style; his poetry is free like the wind, written in a language that readers will easily understand. This collection is worthwhile read.
