A Mosaic of Faith
A Mosaic of Faith

A Mosaic of Faith celebrates Chris Holaves’ life. In these many poems he expressed all the beauty, solemnity, miracles, irony and joy that surrounded him, and caught and held his attention. His poems are like the parts of a mosaic that reveal an image of his deep faith and love for life and God.

This collection is divided into seven chapters that celebrate universal themes of life. Rejoice voices the Christian Lenten season in thirty-two poems that conclude with the personification of lilies reaching through the spring earth to celebrate the Resurrection and rebirth.

In the remaining chapters the poet continues with depth and sometimes humor as he examines our relationship with God, with each other and with our surroundings. His images connect metaphorically on many levels of the human experience. He connects painting a house to examining one’s soul. He compares the cardinals perched on a tree in the winter evening to nature celebrating Christ’s birth. A hurricane reminds us that we are our brother’s keeper while A Rose for Rosa celebrates Rosa Parks and asks “why are you still on your feet?” The collection concludes with The Writer who casts his line in the river of life and notes that the end of the season is near.

Each reading will bring a different and deeper meaning to the poems, perhaps with a nod, a smile or a tear.
