Item description for Wonder by Nicole Pollifrone...
For the days when you walk alone in darkness... it is you who must be the light... "Our humanity is our commonality. During the darkest and the brightest moments of our lives, we often seek ways to be known. We ultimately try to release parts of ourselves out into the world. Whether it be a diary, through having children, friends or writing music...for me it's always been poetry. Most of us live out our days so quietly - so personally - that we feel lost in the Earth's population of 7 billion other people. I hope that at least some of the people who read my poetry can recognize that they are not alone. Each of us shares common experiences regardless of where we live, our color, race, gender, sexual orientation or religion. The human experience is what connects us. Love, fear, and the desire to be known by someone for all you are, are universal. Our differences are only but a veil. We are each a power and a presence unto ourselves. Claim it...and know it is yours."

Wonder takes you on an inner journey of beauty and growth. Aug 18, 2008
Wonder is absolutely wonderful. Nicole Pollifrone is not afraid to open up and share her heart and soul with her readers. She is definitely a poet's poet. I can wait for more from this modern day troubador.
Warm and Soulful Jul 21, 2008
The raw emotion melts from the pages to fill the reader's soul and provide a mirror to see themselves. We all experience and can relate to the poetry written here. Nicole writes concisely but the words expand your thoughts as you read. The best poetry I've read in a very long time.
One of a kind!! Jul 14, 2008
This is simply the BEST poetry I have ever read!! When's the next book coming out? :)
Accomplished Apr 7, 2008
Wonder is a great collection of inimitable poems that convey energy and confusion of love. Wonder demonstrates that poetry is inseparable from live and living. In every single poem I felt confession and emotional tension. I really enjoyed reading Wonder - brave poetry written with sensuality and sincerity.
A Wonder-ful book Mar 8, 2008
A friend sent me a copy of your collection of poems.
On the back, it says that "I hope that at least some of the people who read my poerty can recognize that they are not alone."
To this, I respond: Thank you. You echo my heart. Impact, Prism, Should've... They speak of me, and I am not alone. Nor are you.
---- Some of the poems are very sweet and uplifting, others reflect the harsh realities of life. I think my favorite is "Should've." It's final line says it all: "I should've danced." Nicole celebrates life in all its variety, in its beauty and its ugliness, in its starkness, in its mystery. And in many ways she echoes the way I feel, the way I think, the way I react. In all, she has mirrored my soul back to me, and I have learned to know myself better.
