To All Poetry Enthusiasts!


I don’t joke with people who have a taste for poetry. To all the poetry enthusiasts, I’d say, keep writing ‘cos the world will keep reading too.

I admire the fact that passionate feelings can be expressed through imaginative words in a creative aesthetic style and rhythm.

Unfortunately, Poetry is not accorded the recognition it deserves, especially in African literature. It’s not a genre of literature that is hugely appreciated no doubt, and this can be attributed to its distinctive language. However, with more poets (Africans) rising up, this conception might change in the near future.

So, today, let me honour the Masters of this distinctive art the world over, Poets, who craft words, mould them, weave them together, adding rhythmic beauty to these letters to create a superb gripping effect. 🙂

To all the poets who add special intensity and beauty to letters as they invoke emotions into their poetry –  SALUTE.

Kudos to you all.

It’s Your DAY.

The world celebrates you today! 🙂

In addition, we may not all write poetry in letters. But some of you do, with your gorgeous outlook, and with the extension of your hands of generosity, towards humanity.  🙂

Here’s a big shout out to all the great poets, dead and alive.  You all are the great minds that add beauty and colour to our world.

Cheers. 🙏😍

Happy World Poetry Day! 🙂 🙂 🙂

Peace and Love!

  1. Many years ago a rather tatty copy of Modern Poetry from Africa (Penguin 1963) came my way and I was particularly taken with Song of a Young Girl and Song of a Common Lover by Flavien Ranaivo from Madagascar. Since then I have always enjoyed African poetry and I agree about the lack of recognition it deserves. Here’s a link to the poems:

    1. Awww… There are great poems written by the finest intellectuals of that time. I enjoyed poetry from great minds like Woke Soyinka, J.P. Clark… And I know that more recognition will be accorded these genre of poetry in the future.

      Thanks for the link. Will take a peek. 🙏🏽❤

  2. My poetry sometimes serves as a springboard for writing a short story. Writing poems is an enriching experience, and some of the same imagination and creativity can go into a story as well. However, at least for now, my best work remains poetry.
