  • Seldom Close Enough to See on July 10, 2013

    To publish a collection of poems based on earlier life paths is a challenging undertaking, yet this author does so with grace and style. In his beautifully crafted poems ranging from ordinary subjects to spiritual experience, youth travels towards the next unknown, living life without comprehending its meaning. Only by looking back do we get close enough to see. Grzeskowiak’s vibrant imagery, powerful words, and thought-provoking themes resonate for anyone trying to put life in perspective.
