The Orchard Street Press is pleased to announce the release of Sunlight in the Stream, the latest collection from award-winning poet John P. (Jack) Kristofco of Highland Heights, Ohio.
Peter C. Leverich, author of Catching Sundown and Blaze and Editor Emeritus of Avocet: A Journal of Nature Poems, writes: “Good poetry begins with observation, and John P. Kristofco is indeed a keen observer. He watches the fields, the skies, the woodlands, and the pond life where, one by one, he finds clues to life’s riddles, small and large, which he shares with the reader in this smart collection of wonderfully accessible and finely-crafted poems.”
Ken Schweda, founder and editor of the journal Spank the Carp, observes: “Like all Kristofco’s poetry I’ve had the pleasure to read, the poems in this collection ‘read themselves.’ Their simple, unpretentious language and sound pull us along naturally….when you get to the end of a piece, you think, ‘well, I never thought of it that way. And you realize there’s more here than just a poem about nature or a Yeti! That’s the mark of a true poet.”
David Greisman, long-time editor of Abbey, notes: “Not to be lost in the turmoil of these times is John Kristofco’s Sunlight in the Stream. Read and surrender to these sharp-eyed observations of the natural world we too often take for granted.”
Sunlight in the Stream is available for $12 (online or through the mail) from:
