Description

Author Aura Levitas has spent her life pursuing beauty. First as a dancer, then as a mixed media and collage artist, and now as poet, she seeks to capture the powerful essence and dynamism of the world around her and translate it into visual and literary displays. Following her acclaimed collection of poetry and art, "Sisu," Levitas treats readers to another glimpse of her deftly honed powers of perception and keen aesthetic sensibilities in "Time Step." Exploring the greatest, and yet most basic themes in life, Levitas imbues a literary quality into even the most mundane of topics. Her poems deal with everything from work and love and relationships to childhood and even taxes. Sometimes sardonic, often nostalgic, and even humorous at times, Levitas is always on point with her observations and insights about the nature of life. Coupled with her original works of art, the poems in this volume have the power to engage, challenge, and even startle readers from complacency and send them off into the world on their own search for meaning and beauty.show more
