"Wonder", a new collection of Word Paintings poetry, is now available from Amazon in paperback.
SEA OF STARS
What plays host to our cosmos
to the infinity we observe
tolerates its expansion
shoulders its growth
is it a one of a kind
sea of stars or do
others exist alongside
and around this fabric
of space and time that
can shed new light on
where they and we
come from and will end
a region beyond
a realm outside
the origin of everything
of the gods
Poetic interpretations of the Cosmos
Are you a science lover? Do you love reading about cosmos, the universe, sky, stars, etc.? If yes, then you should read Wonder: In the Presence of Infinity by Jon Trovato, as you would love it. If no, then you must read this book, as it would change your perception and make you fall in love with the science of the universe.
An unusual and serious meditation on existence.
A fascinating read.
I have reread your latest book, Wonder In The Presence of Infinity, and have found it to be even more beautiful and meaningful than my first reading. More than ever now, as I have said, already, it seems to me you are romancing the night sky.
An old flame encouraged me to read your Wonder Book and gave me the link to your website. WOW to both your book and your site.
Okay, so I read the book. I’m glad I did because I came away thinking all the poems contained in it could be used as an inspiring component of the narration for a PBS documentary on the Cosmos. BTW, the poem, “Raising The Possibility,” in my opinion, is definitely a Wonder.
Your book of Wonder is incredibly inspiring to me. Thank you.
A beautiful presentation.
Always wanted to use the word, Dazzling. That’s what I think of your new book, Jon. It’s Dazzling.
J’ai votre livre. J’adore ton livre. N’arrêtez jamais d’écrire de la poésie.
Congratulations, Jon, on your WONDERful new book and also on your August poetry collection. One of my favorites is "So Spectacularly." If you keep writing, we'll keep reading!

At first, I couldn’t understand how you could shift from writing about love to writing about the universe and still hold a reader’s attention. But I bought the book, anyway and I’m glad I did. The writing in The Wonder Collection is just as beautiful as the writing in The Firefly Collection. Your writing is the attention grabber and holder. Your words in The Wonder Collection are based on your observations and impressions of the cosmos. They are as tender, heartfelt and meaningful as your words of love.
Please don’t ever stop writing the kind of poetry that you’ve published in Wonder..
Your new book is as brilliant as the stars.
The questions posed in the last section of Wonder are incredibly thought-provoking.
I know we commented on Wonder last month. But we decided to ask, Where do you find the time to write this amazing stuff?

You’re a keen observer, Jon Trovato, and it shows in your books, your website and your most recent Instagram postings.
From my perspective, the word paintings in "Wonder" are — I’m not sure what words to use. They bring a sense of awe and yes...wonder...that is beyond previous expression. The body of work is wonderful, and I send my heartfelt praise.

As a reader of mostly math & science stuff, I didn't expect to enjoy the poetry as much as I do. You have some real gems here, particularly, "Jewelling the Sky" & "Forever Intent." I will savor the rest of your poetry later ... and again and again. Thank you.
Congratulations on publishing Wonder. Wow…I read the book with a feeling of awe!
Every astronaut should be given a copy of this book. It should be required reading on the international space station.
The word WONDER has gotten a bad rap. It seems to me some people think that those of us who WONDER are always wondering while some action should be taken. On the other hand you’ve single handedly revived my appreciation of the word and our mutual respect for it. Congratulations.
This book is the best ever reason to go out and buy a backyard telescope.
The poetry in your latest book is simply grand.

In your new book, "Wonder In The Presence Of Infinity", you seem to be romancing the night sky.
Wonder is quite a trip. WOW!
Poetic interpretations of Love
Suddenly and gracefully
you seated yourself
barely an arm’s length
at the entrance
to a woodland
familiar to both of us
on a night with neither
moon nor stars
when out of the darkness
a strand of tiny suns appeared
as if summoned
from a distant sky
each of them as fully entranced with your glow
as you were with theirs
signaling they and you
had met this way often
and would do so
"A beautiful collection!"
"There is a tenderness in Trovato's poetry that goes straight to the heart."
Some of the love poems in your new book brought me to tears. All of them are unforgettably profound. Your talent for expressing the intricacies and intimacies of this most beautiful behavior is without equal.
I think the poetry in your "Firefly Collection" should be read often. I enjoy them that way and discover new meaning, new understanding, and new appreciation for your oh so beautiful words with each new reading.
The poems in "The Firefly collection" are spectacular celebrations of love.
What a beautiful, beautiful book.
I have read every poem in your "Firefly Collection", Jon. I see them as timeless, tireless and true words of love. Giving or receiving these words has got to have been gloriously life-changing. Thank you for sharing these poems with the world.
Thank you so much for the beautiful book of poetry! The poems are so intimate, so tender, so lyrical and poignant. Congrats to you!!
You did it. You published a book of poetry. It’s beautiful. I can’t stop reading the poems.. Thank you. Who is the mystery woman on the cover? Were the poems written for her?
Les poèmes de "The Firefly Collection" sont les expressions d’amour les plus sincères que j’ai jamais lues.
"The Firefly Collection" is a compendium of heartfelt love stories. I'll be reading each of them again and again.
