The Chinaberry Tree & Other Poems
by R. Cary Bynum
In his first collection of poetry, R. Cary Bynum provides rich insights into the human heart and into the soul of everyday life and its beautiful mysteries. Known for his plays, such as Cabbagetown: 3 Women, Bynum is able to bring to his poetry the same imagery and vitality that is so vividly reflected in his dramatic works.
As David Bottoms, Georgia Poet Laureate, states, “Cary Bynum knows that the job of the poet is to make the world more available to the reader. These poems shine with gratitude and the simple but profound concerns of the human heart. They show us what it means to live a meaningful life, to be aware of the small and beautiful mysteries that surround us every day.”
