Charbonneau poetry published
Rockport — Longtime resident Paul Charbonneau has just published “Back to the Light,” a collection of poems full of hope and longing, playful and provocative.
“Because of the encouragement of family and close friends, I have been persuaded to share these poems primarily as a legacy for family, a gift to friends and an expression of our universal reliance on the kindness of strangers,” he said.
After serving as director of the Maine Court Mediation Service and gaining a national reputation in the field of dispute resolution, Charbonneau returned to writing. In the 1970s and ‘80s, The Camden Herald published a series of his essays, titled “Simple Pleasures.” He later wrote and published a history of the Amsbury family of Rockport, “Glance of Wonder.”
Charbonneau’s poetry also appears in the spring edition of the “The Aurorean” poetry journal. Copies of “Back to the Light” may be found at local libraries and bookstores.
