Different Seconds: Dare to Imagine
Life changes each and every second. And in Different Seconds, author Richard Apple explores many of these changes in his first published collection of poetry. This work not only expresses ideas earnestly and directly, but delivers important messages about living life.
Including themes of imagination, Apple's poems evoke grand imagery. In the selection, "I An," he writes, / Watching flames shoot up high / Sparks flying up / Smoke choking the air / All within in my fire hut / Just watching the fire roar / Reminds me of something I once heard / Every bright orange storm / Represents only one thing from the past. The poem, "F.L.A.T.," describes some of Apple's Canadian terrain. / Watching prairie grass roll in the wind / The clouds rushing across the sky / Groundhogs playing in a field / Standing on top of the world / ... / The sun sets down beside me / Big round and orange / A herd of cattle, moving in front / It looks like a post card.
"Different Seconds" reveals a wide range of human emotions while conveying life lessons and stirring imaginations.
