Losing love, finding and keeping it, death, desire, longing and the many other passions and events that define human existence, these are the themes that wait to be discovered in “Time to Now”, a collection of poetry by Jan Du Preez.
The covers of this book open to reveal a doorway to the vast universe of human experience and emotion. Using a lilting rush of words, the poet lends a stirring glimpse into the concept of life, death and everything in between. Whatever the subject matter- mourning a lost love, celebrating family, enduring the torment of isolation and loneliness- Du Preez deftly combines the subtlety of metaphors and the potency of familiar themes to construct a world that is surreal and real, familiar and alien at the same time. Readers will not want to skip on any of the poems that make up this collection as each one represents a single step in a fascinating odyssey of the heart, mind and senses.
Poignant and stimulating, “Time to Now” is a perfect example of how poetry can so powerfully capture human emotions and thoughts. The wordsmith is brave in providing illumination into the deep labyrinth of his heart and soul.
