This first poetic collection is built upon my love for language and it’s ability to leap high, reach long, and creatively crawl in free verse forms that range from couplets to narratives.
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)
