In his debut book of poetry, Christian Pascale highlights both the internal and external intricacies of life, focusing on the macrocosm of our world. From the pull of the Spirit to the complexities of grief, this collection crystallizes daily life into a transcendent experience. Providing both the tangible understanding of place and time coupled with the visceral perception of the divine, we are reminded of possibility and promise.
"Poetry of Wonder is the ideal book for our complicated times. It overflows with the magic of nature, the many faces of love, the lure of exotic places, and the strength of enduring faith. Christian Pascale has a unique voice that resonates equally well with humorous poetry about Gertrude Stein, “a Rose is a Rose,” the ethereal flavor of “Autumn Woods,” and the poignant love of family in “Her Last Gift.” Each poem awakens us to truth while soothing the soul."
