Altimeters – Maria Gianna Iannucci

treasured art

a lost part

beneath gravel knees

a tender discovered


where kisses graze

the pillar’s face

as i search my vulnerability

the fragile totality

of connectivity

a revolving door

that escapes me

as i behold

infinite beauty ~

a fragmented universe

in harmony

Authentic beauty is present to the five senses only through love. Social distancing is the outward manifestation of our inner fragmentation. It takes the aerial view of the Soul to love every piece into unity.

I am a Social Worker by day and an artist/writer by night. I use the written word in an attempt to make sense of the secret worlds and dysfunctional dynamics that lurk beneath the facades of our daily interactions. I am not sure how my writing styles are characterized, nor am I overly concerned about it. I am immensely enthusiastic about music and often connect better with songs than I do people. I also have an intense appreciation for quality wines and whiskies, frequently consuming them in excess. I like things that smell good and struggle to manage the symptoms of a life-long relationship with depression. So, why "grumpygorman"? Spend some time here and find out...
