Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Seamless is an inspirational, thought-provoking poetry book with poems featuring such topics as the beauty of mother and child, war, peace, love, the soothing sound of rain, and always the glory of God. Fr. Ralph Wright, who is a poet of great distinction, pens works that reflect his knowledge of and respect for the masters. His images are both beautiful and startling; his metaphors perceptive, his use of rhyme natural. His expertise lies in the unity of word and idea that is the essence of poetry. Seamless is one of eight books of verse by Fr. Ralph. The poetry of Seamless is never obscure but nevertheless demands that we return, again and again, to delight in and savor both words and subtle meanings. Seamless offers a soothing escape from the pressures and turmoil of every day life.
