About the Book

“Reflections of Darkness and Light” is novelist Michael André Fath’s debut volume of verse. These 51 poems transcend the gamut of human emotion and experience, whether physical, mental or spiritual, and sometimes everything, wrapped into a single offering. The splendor of daughters, our Chesapeake Bay’s sheer majesty, the sublime brilliance of sport and luminosity of music, etc., are included themes giving way to those feelings of grandeur; with even the devoted care of one’s 1950’s Chevrolet, and the intoxicating visual seduction of a simple sundress!

Yet to counterbalance while being faithful to the more somber and tragic aspects of life, entries also portray the loneliness of being a single father, sibling and parent loss, fall from grace, a beloved pet’s transition, a Marine Vietnam veteran’s catharsis and much more.

These will hopefully, at the very least, entice reflection and appreciation of surviving life’s numerous and many times seemingly insurmountable and impossible challenges.
