fluid

"fluid" by Renaada Williams

| Instagram | "fluid." is a collection of poetry about going and growing through changes. I believe everyone should understand that we all go through things in life, it's all about how we react and recover from them. If you've felt as though you didn't have a voice in a situation, or you weren't sure if you'd get through it "fluid." may be the book for you.

Review:

"Connection" Everything about Fluid was what I expected and more. It's real. It's from your heart. You continue to motivate me to write more and more and to dig deeper and deeper into my feelings. One day I hope to wirte books as great as yours. Thank you!!! ~Jasmine Diane

Through the Darkness, With Love

"Through the Darkness, With Love" by Sandeep Narayan Tripathi

| Website | Facebook | Twitter | Instagram | Through The Darkness, With Love is a masterpiece. The words combine with the beautiful pictures and classical looking images to create a powerful and moving impact. The yearning for love to be eternal, and the need to immortalize love with words seem to be the heart of what Sandeep Narayan Tripathi wants his legacy as a poet to be. I think he succeeds. The words go straight to the heart and the pictures complement them. It works for me, especially in Simply Ask Myself, Nota Bene, and the haunting An Abysmal Love. If you are only going to buy one book of poetry this year, buy this one. Through The Darkness, With Love is the real thing.

Till The Ink Is Done

"Till The Ink Is Done" by Ely J. Rodriguez

| YouTube | Instagram |  A true poet or singing artist may experience writers block or may stop writing due to a tragic event. However, their soul has such a great amount of passion or fiery for their craft; they cannot cease. When a passionate artist, poet, or motivational speaker writes a verse, quote, or poem, and it's meant to be released to the world, whether it be about a personal experience, event seen on the news, a reflection of their environment, or what's being displayed on the internet, it doesn't matter if the writer expresses themselves via electronic devices or ink it on paper. The importance of conveying that influential message becomes such a priority, it almost feels like a news reporter reporting a headline that may touch the lives of people watching. Till The Ink Is Done is a book with collections of influential poems and quotes that speak messages that touch our lives as humans everyday, from struggles, betrayal, relationships, working hard, successes, self achievement, and overcoming the odds like the 300 Spartan men that fought their enemies in Thermopylae.

Sit Stay

"Sit. Stay. : vol. I in the printpoetics chapbook series" by  A. L. D Chalom

SIT. STAY (vol. I in the printpoetics chapbook series) is "a poetry chapbook for anyone who is a person and not a template." The printpoetics chapbook series offers thought provoking material condensed into tiny reads in a style far less delicate than what we are used to seeing in A.L.D. Chalom's previous work (see "ONE"- a poetry collection). The different volumes dissect "hot-potato" subjects such as social injustice, discrimination, abuse, stereotypes, sexuality, gender, LGBTQ issues, women's rights, feminism, racism, bullying, loss, drug use and abuse ... the list is endless and the series is an ongoing project, constantly adding volumes to the series. The chapbooks vary in style; some including poetry, some prose, some a mix. Trigger warning for books in this series: abuse, rape, non-censored language.
