About UNSPOKEN WORD
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.
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.
