Overview

I searched throughout my life for the meaning of life, more honestly for the meaning of my life. I demanded to find it face to face, breath to breath. And then found it in salvation and years of joy; face to face, breath to breath. Suddenly there came years of tangled and troubled events and with those years came writing from the deep emotions that followed. In the writing of Verses of Life, of Love, of God those events would often express themselves through the life of someone sitting alone in thought, a child lost in their world, fictional characters, or myself, breathing, aching, loving as they, as I lived my life. Then in expressing that pain there would often come a vision of clarity even hope. God is the theme of my book as if He was observing us and I was privileged to listen in to His thoughts. Though only through Rhema of the Word and direct revelation can we truly know His heart and will for each of us, the Word of God reveals His heart and He has pressed upon the earth that heart and wants us to hear its beating. Poetry is that medium of expression that can exert itself with a glance at a face, a memory thought long forgotten, an unsettling, even tragic experience, with nowhere to put it except in verse; and a way of expressing love that is deeply personal and hopefully original. In the writing of poetry there occurs a spontaneous movement of thoughts that seem to collect upon a subject, and so often it is the subject that has been moving within our life. If we attempt to write about a subject and there is little inspiration the poem will trail off into an effort, but not poetry. Today the earth is in turmoil politically and spiritually-marriages ending, children plunging into sin; so if a word can reach someone and turn them toward righteousness, toward life, not death, then it is a word of life. Poetry has taken a different course with today's authors. No longer the Tennysons, the Brownings, Miltons, Wordworths, Emersons; rather little rhyme

From studying commercial and fine art in Detroit at Cass Tech, Tim and a buddy purchased a one-way ticket to Le Havre, France. With $35 each they traveled Europe and England for seven months, working where they could and sending articles back to Detroit's Brightmoor Journal newspaper and the Detroit Free Press. From Europe, Tim Perior moved to Southern California, studying Design at Art Center while working as a soft drink bottle sorter, box boy, dishwasher, gas station attendant, bus boy, waiter, and bartender. Two years in the army took him to Korea for 13 months. There he bought his 1st Nikon and won honorable mention in Venture Magazine with his 1st roll of film; a photo of a young Korean girl, happy with a handful of rice. Out of the army Tim went from restaurant management to opening his own photography studio. His photography included Salvador Dali, John Wayne, Andy Devine, Valerie Hawkins, Virginia Knott, Martin Sheen, etc.
From photography Tim was profoundly drawn to filmmaking. All the art and composition, light and color training came into effect. He began to make short films;

Reviewed by Samantha Gregory for Readers' Favorite Verses of Life, of Love, of God by Timothy J. Perior is a collection of poems which are a mixture of poignant and inspirational. Most of the poems are directed towards Christians, but I feel they can be enjoyed by anyone. The poems I particularly enjoyed were Tonight, Lovers All and Whose Son? I believe different poems would speak to different people, and the author has clearly lived a varied and eventful life. There is quite a mix of poems here and a few seem quite dark. Some include specific places such as New York, Texas and Alabama. I think this book may only attract certain buyers as opposed to being more universal to readers, although it's clear the writer has put a lot of work into it. He can paint a vivid picture with only a few lines of verse. The themes are clearly what is life about and the role that God plays in our lives. Timothy J. Perior includes one hundred and forty-nine poems in Verses of Life, of Love, of God, and each poem is relatively short. I feel this would make a great gift for a poetry lover as something they could read each day. In terms of marketability, the title may put some people off as they may feel it is only aimed at Christians. I think this is a shame as poems such as Starlight is the Heart and I've Seen can be enjoyed by everyone. Overall, I enjoyed most of the poetry and the general themes in each one.
