This book is an avalanche of longing in all it's mysterious phases. Evocative, loving passages that caress without touch and see without judgement. This is a beautifully translated collection of poetry that inspires us to reach beyond our closed doors.

Sensuous words flow as The Wind and The Sea surround you in swirls of passion. From one poem to the next, Mr. Navarro draws you into his world of beauty and love. This volume of poetry would make any medieval troubadour proud.

Gavriel Navarro's poetry is very passionate from the first word to the last. It's almost like he was writing specially to the reader. It reminds me of poems I've read of Byron and Keats. His poetry is definitely for lovers. I think he probes in the very soul of love so that the reader can feel those same emotions that he felt when he was writing these poems. He doesn't necessarily rhyme like a person thinks of when they think of poetry, but his writings are definitely poetry and very well written.

Review by: Elaine Stirling on Aug. 28, 2012 :
For someone who was raised to keep emotions to herself, especially the painful, overwhelming emotions that surround desire, Gavriel Navarro’s book, The Wind and the Sea, stormed through and overturned everything. That anyone, least of all a man, could write with such raw and scorching tenderness does not seem possible. Open to any page of this finely crafted work, and feel your soul weeping. Notice how your heart wants to leap across the heavens to meet this yearning lover, who is surely the sum of all love, throughout eternity. From something as simple as “let a tear of happiness fall in the meadow” to “how I would love amidst the revolution of constant emotions to know that your emotions will not break with the monotony of silence”, a reader is assured of something beyond all evidence and rationality—namely, that Love is real, that Beauty guides and steers us all to the epicenter of our greatest desires, not to thwart or diminish or to ask that we “settle”, but to represent her. To embody what we were made bodies for—to seek, find, embrace, appreciate, yearn for, and most importantly, to celebrate each other. Gavriel Navarro is surely among the most important poets who walk among us today. And if you don’t appreciate poetry (which I didn’t), then buy it for a loved one or someone you would like to love (which may include yourself), and watch your world change, one exquisite poem at a time.
