A book of lyrical poems in the best traditions of nature poetry, incorporating reflections on contemporary life and culture, by an internationally recognized author who has recently been translated into Polish. “Giannetti digs deeply in to the essence, the core of things, as he tries to come to terms with the basic questions of our existence. Constantly seeking reconciliation with nature, he achieves amazing effects by combining in his lyricism the delight and admiration of natural beauty with primeval eschatological realizations. He is an American, but primarily a citizen of a planet orbiting in a larger universe.” - Dariusz Lebioda, Editor of Termat (Polish periodical of arts and letters) “The fashion in which Giannetti writes is painterly. Light fills his poetry as light magically fills the world. Like light his poetry allows a revealing into the good parts of the human condition that might otherwise be overlooked as common. The poems are an intimate engagement of life with language. In his poetry the spiritual is made visual with words.” - Michael Basinski, Curator, The Poetry Collection, University at Buffalo For more information on Robert M.

Summer’s cover of billowing, dense green lushness has given way to grey, bony shapes, the chisel of biting air, the sculpture of the cold. The scant light parceled out in the shortened day makes precious the blush of color on the rosy cheeks of a sunrise beckoning across the vacant landscape, arousing my ardor, leaving a lust to continue the journey through whatever remains of the day. -Lips- In the dusk of a pale grey day on a winter walk in the park I came upon the trunks of several small trees stretching across the top of a chain link fence around a ball field. Where they touched the fence, their bark seemed like lava that had once flowed over the rail and was now hardened in distended flaps, lip-like, pursed tightly over the cold metal. Summer’s shade had hidden those lips, veiling their grip as the tree tops swayed to find some opening to the light. How easily missed on a stroll, were it not now for the leafless winter branches, the bare spaces exposing those lips in their determined kiss.
