Praise for the Collection

“[These] poems … are like so many multi-colored pebbles shimmering in the Mediterranean sun and caressed to perfection by the constant ebb and flow of the Aegean Sea.” -- Kostas Myrsiades, Gold Medallion Award, Hellenic Society of Translators

“These fine poems evoke not only the extraordinary beauty of their subject, but also a sense of immanent grandeur that lies behind it. A rich, rewarding collection.” -- Richard Burgin, Editor, Boulevard
