Sometimes I feel immensely lucky as people of extraordinary mind cross my pathway and beautify it with poetry. Having become acquainted with Abigail Lorraine Pillitteri is no exception! The depth of her thinking is not lost for a lack of light-heartedness, and the breadth of her word-weaving capabilities guarantees the enjoyment of patrons of all types of poetry, from sonnet to haiku to all measure of free-verse.
Ms. Pillitteri knows that dreams do not happen unless we take (or make) opportunities to see them through. She has been working with a fearless approach toward her dream of publishing her first book of poetry. Read more about it here, and watch her video in which she recites her favorite poem (“Brewing”) from her forthcoming book of the same title.
Support living poets, and the world will be more beautiful for it!
