)-- Moonlit Weeds is available from most online book distributors and on Richard Picciuto’s website: richardpicciuto
The poems are full of quiet, yet extraordinary images delivered with humility and gentleness. A number of the pieces point to the cyclical nature of existence; many express nostalgia for lost youth with hushed, emotional scenes. The reader is led from coconut cream pie to insects chanting in the “moonlit weeds.”
Whether describing a pineapple, skiing down a favorite mountain trail or childhood loves, the author delivers his observations and reflections with the gentleness and humility of a local Wordsworth. While a number of pieces point to the cyclical nature of existence and often express nostalgia for lost youth—“I still love my sons but I dearly miss my boys”—the hushed scenes are frequently moving.
