The River of Time
By: Aida Francis
About the Book
The River of Time is a collection of emotionally powerful poetic verses of how time interferes and shapes one’s life. Aida Francis provides a complex portrait of intense emotions experienced throughout a lifetime. She details the warm bonds between people. The expressions of trust, respect, and closeness. The constant reemergence of one who stays within our minds. And the platonic intimacy that develops between close companions. Francis beautifully illustrates a life told through interactions, through connections with people, and the struggles we face as we consider our remaining time on earth.
