Jude A. Brattoli’s new poetry collection “Beyond The Realm: (Thoughts From Within),” published posthumously by his wife, (published by Trafford Publishing) presents a series of intriguing, entertaining poems covering a vast array of emotions.
“Beyond The Realm” expresses feelings of friendship, love, faith and delves into the dream, or subconscious, state of mind. Bratolli’s use of metaphors, similes and imagery lends an interesting perspective to many of today’s complex emotions.
An excerpt from “Beyond The Realm”:
How mysterious be this state of mind,
In which the subconscious does reside.
Thoughts and deed, in visions unwind,
And reality with fantasy collide.
Brattoli’s wife knows that his poetry will leave readers changed. “They’ll leave with a sense of heightened awareness or in an excited state of mind.”
