4:04am Thoughts Barbara Gianquitto


It is with great mastery and craftsmanship that Gianquitto reveals both her triumphs and her traumas, her loves and her losses, her lost self and herself reborn with new strength and hope.  The poems are so evocative that memories of my own traumas and triumphs, my own loves and losses, came to mind as a I was reading.  I cried and smiled and felt that the poet’s newly found hope and strength were not only hers, but mine as well.
