Colors Collected is a poetry book created by demand of my amazing readers! It comes from my award winning poetry series, Colors, on Channillo.com. This series consists of 62 poems published last year as a challenge: two poems with a continuous thread about color, each week, for six months. The series is complete, and still live earning money through Channillo Charities for my charity of choice, Mary’s Place. It’s an organization providing help and support for families with children who are facing homelessness.
After being nominated and winning three awards: best new series, best continuing series, and best poetry series for the 2018 Channillo Awards, readers started asking, “Where can we buy the book?” So, I have chosen 31 of my favorite color-themed poems, and written a few more only available in this book. It will be available within a few weeks! I will add the link as soon as it’s available.
I can’t thank my readers enough for supporting me in this endeavor. Below is the link to the online series, Colors, Channillo, and as stated above, the link to my book, Colors Collected, will follow soon.

Colors Collect: (launching the end of Summer 2019)
Here’s my book blurb on the back:
Colors Collected is a poetry debut from Pacific Northwest writer, Celaine Charles. Gathering thirty-one poems from her online poetry series, Colors, she has also penned new pieces to complete this picturesque book. Her hope is to inspire a celebration of color in her readers, encouraging them to slow down and notice the world around.
Celaine’s poems include whimsical insights about everyday life, from the softest shades to the boldest tints, to the wonderings of a world with no color at all:
“If I write these words, will they
Will children one day find
a poem about a tree,
at the vibrant color
described in a verdant forest glen?”
