This anthology of verses retraces the entire poetic journey of the author over a period of 35 years. They are poems first published in newspapers and literary magazines, then merged into three editorial publications.

‘On this poetic and human journey, that nothing censors of living and everything leads to a sense, whether good or evil, it is a consolation and even a joy to be bowled over by your verses. Sometimes as light as the flight of a seagull, sometimes as rough as sandpaper that burns in the soul, but always with the hope of a determinate destination and a hand that will not abandon you.’- Franco Casadei

‘It is a book that, rather than reading, demands meditation, for the incomparable beauty of its vision, for the mystical quality of its insights, for the thirsty spirit of spiritual quest … Upon opening it I was immediately felt a rare abandon, a yearning singing inside me. These are intense poems…’ – Simona Lo Iacono
