Filtered Light: Selected Poetry

In this delightful collection of largely unpublished poems, Pietro M. Di Giorgio gives us verse that explores a broad range of subjects with wit and a depth of expression that make it nearly impossible to put down this volume. He makes no claim to have reached the pinnacle of poetic art, but instead shares with the reader his journey on the road to perfecting a style and the personal way that poetic expression germinates in his mind. There are surprises and a freshness that is born from one who has found the road to artistic fulfillment. You are sure to enjoy his poetry.
