CHANCE FOR ROMANCE
Love songs and poems

This book (ebook) is a crazy assortment of love songs and poems. They were written over a 31-year period, so within these 'pink pages' you will find an interesting mix of points of view ... from an ignorant teenager all the way through to, well, an ignorant adult!

Love and lust are almost synonymous nowadays, as more and more couples place a higher priority on sexual fulfillment in their relationships. On the other hand, 'love', used to describe 'old-fashioned love' - caring for your partner, and also love for your family and friends - will never die.

James Taris is not an expert when it comes to love. He's just like most people ... ignorant about many aspects of love, but hopeful of the 'bliss' that love can bring, as promised by so many poets and writers through their books, movies and songs. James wrote these poems in an attempt to make sense from so many opposing feelings and emotions he was going through at various stages of his life. Some were postive. Some were negative. Many were frustrating andalways challenging. Nevertheless, by writing about his love thoughts, he managed to weather the love storm and lead a very happy love live.

These love poems are written in chronological order (newest to oldest). It's a journey you will find quite interesting and amusing, especially when you read about James' humble beginnings. The autobiographical stories that accompany each poem will also help you become more acquainted with, and relate more to, James' life story.

Kermit the Frog once said, "It's not easy being green". And this definitely applies to the love cycle!


LOVE POEMS

"Some are happy, some are sad and some are just plain ridiculous." ... James

It's not just poetry

James has developed a unique way of presenting his poems. Instead of merely offering a selection of creative and entertaining poetry, he has also added a couple of other useful and attractive features:

1) Autobiographical trailers

After each poem, James gives some addtional information about when, where, why and how he wrote the poem and/or a glimpse of his life and activities around the time the poem was written. Thus adding an interesting insight with each poem.

2) Creative images (in ebook only)

Plain text on a page can often look bland, so each poem features an image with 2 imaginatively manipulated versions to decorate the poetry page.

So prepare yourselves for a literal and visual extravaganza.

What people are saying

Rt. Hon. James Taris, You are as full of life as anyone can wish for! What makes you genius? Who makes you genius? How it all happens just like that in your case? All these sorts of questions can be answered in one sentence! "A POET IS BORN NOT MADE! AND SO IS THE GENIUS!" No one can be a writer like James Taris by taking up some story-writing course or just going to some sort of university! You can't be Bruce Lee by just joining a Kung Fu club of some sort! All in all you are like a mighty pacific whale which dosen't need swimming lessons! A sort of albatross who does not need Pan-American to fly! ... Please try not to change your way of life as it is wonderful as it is! ... Dhanjisha! (India)

I read your poem 'She's A Gorilla'. Personally I wouldn't say I hate it but it is not my style. The one I really like is "Heaven". The others are more like lyrics and as I am not very musical I can't make them come alive. My failure despite being named after the saint of music! Like you, I write poems because it is therapeutic. Cecilia (Australia)

I had a first glance at your web site which is really great (read also some of your poems which I found very expressive, personal and professional and would love sending you some of mine ... but they're all in German.) Dagmar (Germany)
