Initially inspired as a gift to family and friends, it incorporates varied poetic devices that include lyrical verse, syllabic sound, slant rhyme and rhythm’s ranging from:
“…southern sass to emotions that touch the soul!”
Poets and those less familiar with the genre will all enjoy its three-part sections that include: praise, risk, & double-meaning. My poems resonate both somber tones and celebratory themes of family and religion that speak to my triumph over cancer to more whimsical poems that transcend African-American history.
The collection ends with an in-depth interview with renowned poet/photographer/professor Thomas Sayers Ellis (Mosaic Magazine , Winter 2006)
