In this moving collection of 100 poems, Mitch Ditkoff touches on what it takes to be a conscious human being: reflection, wonder, appreciation, longing, open-heartedness, love and the full enjoyment of the present moment.

Your poetry has given me one of the greatest gifts of all… Hope.

Mitch’s poetry resonates with the story of my life and pours forth like an erupting volcano, igniting that unnameable thirst within.

Unspoken Word is entrancing – a stellar accomplishment. This precious book is a rare treasure, a cloudburst of wisdom, a true feast for the soul.
John R. Audette

Author, "Loved by the Light: True Stories of Divine Intervention and Providence"

Mitch Ditkoff’s poems are striking and lyrical.  His wide-range of poetic styles reflect the gentle romanticism of Rilke and Gibran and the wry wit of Billy Collins. Like Rumi and Hafiz, Mitch has the gift of distilling infinity into words that inspire you to feel its vastness within you.
