Unspoken Word: Love, Longing & Letting Go (Paperback)
Unspoken Word: Love Longing & Letting Go is a "best of" collection of Mitch Ditkoff's poetry - his fourth book in an ongoing series. His poems are a kind of inner tuning fork, giving voice to the human quest for the divine, as well as the existential gap between our highest aspirations and the seeming mundane realities of daily life. Inspired by the poetry of Rumi, Hafiz, Kabir, and Rilke, Ditkoff's expressions of the heart serve as a bridge between two worlds - the timeless world of ecstatic experience and the all-too-common 9 to 5. Human beings tend to live their lives between these two polls, often gravitating to one over the other. What Ditkoff attempts to do in his poetry is honor all of it. To him, it's all holy, all sacred, all divine - even if it doesn't always seem that way. As he notes in The Only Pilgrimage Required: "Here's a little secret: every breath you take is a prayer, 22,000 times a day it rises, unannounced, then returns to who knows where, you do not need to kneel, you do not need to speak, and the only pilgrimage required is the one from head to heart, the one all people seek."
