New Book of Poems for Mom and Grandma
Laguna Woods, CA - Make Mother and Grandmother feel all the more
special with this new selection of poems heralding their unselfish
love. Celeste Nadine Galucci, accomplished poet and ASCAP member,
pays tribute to all mothers in her new poetry book Love into
Poetry. This poetry collection is rich in imagery and profuse
in love, respect, and gratitude for the special women in our lives.
Bring a smile to their eyes with this new book as an extended
celebration of Mother's Day.
From the poem "Your Love To Me," Galucci employs similes to
describe a mother's devotion, "Like a symphony of violins/With the
sweetest harmony contained therein/...Like a choir of birds in
enchanting sound/... Beautiful words echoing all around/...Is your
love to me." The book is actually composed of three parts. The
first set of poems is for mothers, the second for grandmothers, and
the third is a selection of poems that had been made by Galucci
through the years. Having had a close relationship with her mother
has inspired Galucci to create poems since she was a child. It was
actually her mother who gave the title Love into Poetry, a
fitting label for a daughter's gratitude for the woman who loved
and inspired her.
For Galucci, her mother had been a model of fortitude, faith in
God, and love. In her childhood and teenage years, the poet had
been stricken with debilitating diseases that doctors thought she
would not live long. But her mother kept her faith and prayed for
her child all along. In her new book of poetry, Galucci dedicates
her works to the woman who had touched her life most. It is also to
her mother that Celeste owes her artist blood. The late Patty S.
Galucci was an ASCAP (American Society of Composers, Authors and
Publishers) member and wrote numerous songs.
