Vi ringrazio di cuore per la stima e l’amicizia.
Poetry is not a form of escape into an unrealistic and irrational fantasy, detached from reality. The Poet’s feet are firmly planted on the ground, while his mind rises to the heavens – hidden from most – though only to gain the profound meaning of existence, and of a man immersed in a universe flooded with direct and indirect messages. But these messages are more than simple gnostic missives. Rather, they are part of a greater harmony revealed in the incredible Beauty of the created universe. Forming the ‘heartbeat’ of the cosmic life which contains us, are nature and emotions, culture and sentiment. Something which the Creator, in His infinite Wisdom, Love, and Rationality, has placed within our immortal souls.
The Artist is a speck within this infinity of Love. He is entrusted with the mission of using language, in its broadest sense, to pass on the ‘Heart of Life’ to his fellow beings.
The Poet-Artist in particular is a demiurge of spoken and written language; he is a vehicle for the wonder of everyday living, as if living in the absolute eternity of the present moment.
In the littlest gestures and situations which reality offers us, the Poet sees the reflection of the infinite. In multiplicity he sees the exaltation of the One who gifts us with this limitless Life in Truth, Goodness and, of course, Beauty, which contains the first two archetypal concepts.
With that, I hope you enjoy the book and your immersion into the luminous darkness of life, until you find the Light which illuminates the deepest reaches of the Soul, in a world which, though dying, yearns to rise again in God’s pure Light.
