Overview

Ontology: Stopping for Dead Leaves is the first collected work of poetry from New England poet Michael Pecora. The poems in this collection were all composed after 2012, many of which were inspired by the birth of the poet's son, and subsequent interest in the nature of creation which was inspired by the event. Examining the nature of spirituality, metaphysics, mysticism, as well as the ecological and social concerns, the poems in Ontology live up to the title as they are the poet's attempt to understand creativity, and where poetry fits into the human condition.
Great for poetry lovers, as well as philosophers who express curiosity in New Age spirituality, as well as classical, esoteric forms of mysticism.
