About P. W. Chaltas

Peter W. Chaltas is an entrepreneurial poet and has been writing poetry since the age of 16 when his father passed away. He was educated at Trinity college at the University of Toronto and majored in Literature and Philosophy. In his fifties, he became an online twitter poet. His work has since been published in online publications like Levure Litteraire, Lakeview Journal, Paper.li and Twimagination, as well as on his website Pwchaltas.com. Over the years, he has written 14 collections relating to art, poetry, creativity, love, loss, death,and nature. The One, spirituality, the figure of Christ, and the alienation and loneliness of the immigrant, the forgotten outsider, and the survivor are also dominant themes in his work. These poems were meditations and therapy written for himself that, until recently, were unpublished, and shared with only his closest confidants. After many years of consideration, he is now publishing his works.

A self described "Willing servant of the Word and art", some of Peter's own personal favourite aphorisms are "The eye is a lily on arched stem bending down observing every thing", "One can be more than One, at One time" as well as Moshe Safdie's maxim "He who seeks Truth shall find Beauty".

Peter is also actively involved in, and blogs on topics such as entrepreneurship, and fashion and has had a long and varied career as an entrepreneur. He has a background in graphics and apparel; been a restauranteur; and a real estate agent and investor. He is passionate about poetry, photography, and art. In his heart of hearts his essence is that of artist and poet musing on the truths of the human condition.
