Spirit Bridge: Selected Poetry

Mr. Di Giorgio is a joyous poet, who sings with the bards of the earth. Human senses and emotions are woven into cascades of melody. These are very personal works, made of worlds the poet has experienced through his acute senses, and his very fluid mind. He is reflective, reaching into the past, as well as the future. Reading these works, reminds me to look around at the everyday, to find more than I know.

About the Author

Pietro Mario Di Giorgio, was born in Utica, New York in 1930. He is the son of Luigi and Benedetta Di Giorgio, new arrivals to the United States from Italy. During the Second World War, the family moved to Michigan. Pietro graduated from Fordson High School, Eastern Michigan University, and was granted a Master’s Degree from Wayne State University. The Garden City School System hired Pietro to teach Creative Writing, English, and Literature. He loved and encouraged his students. Together, they authored a literary publication—The Seed, and produced a radio program—Starting Point, featuring poetry and music. Pietro and his wife, Sharlet, retired in 1988, and spent a year in Italy, writing, painting, and enjoying family. They live in Farmington Hills, Michigan, where Pietro devotes his time to writing poetry.
