 Nothing attracts me more than prowess and dexterity. For by such critical and creative ingredients, we are profoundly psyched up AND our literary consciousness is re-wired. WORLD PLAY IN A WHIRLPOOL is an all-powerful, sweet but infectious read, it haunts the reader forever and ever. It tastes mature like red wine in old wineskins. It smells seasons like first drops of the first rain.  This is a scorcher, it strikes the nerves like the giant tongs of the sun during the dry season.  It’s a metaphoric blast furnace that blazes and fires up iron hearted earthly dwellers into a repentant humanity of pure steel, we are baptized by the intriguing imagery as we are ritualized by the smoking waters of satire. We are born again.  WORLDPLAY IN A WHIRLPOOL is heavy with subject matters that transcends from hope, death, disease, ecosystem, cultural anthropologies, biblical allusions, psychical exercises, climate change, menacing pandemics, positive change, race and perception change.  WORLD PLAY IN A WHIRLPOOL is poetry that coils your heart caves and you vomit the bile of sins. It blows up your mental boxes, you shiver and weep. It rips off satans doeks to expose zealots, charlatans and political maggots corrupting   and rotting the beauty of this our beloved earth. It fumigates the pandemic infested air as the earth fails to breathe due to unbridled human cruelty and wanton sin. It exposes the now   sorrowful baldheaded landscapes, once shining with the verve of flora and fauna. The whirlpool arouses the skeletal sandy riverbeds that were once upon havens of laughing hippos, cackling water hens and dancing fish. it is poetry that weeps and as such wiping tears of bereaved mothers that lost so many lives during the menacing seasons of the cantankerous corona virus. It is a beautiful but heart-rending epitaph to black lives lost in barbaric racial battles, a touching eulogy to the earth succumbing to the dramatic effects of climate change, heatwaves and hurricanes. This Wordplay is an embodiment of promise, lost hope, love, loss, pain, sunset     and moonshine. It is a spiritual whirlpool to transfigure ill minded political goblins and evil-minded war devils to repent from terrorism and warlords. The lyrical dexterity is superbly concocted with reason , history , spirituality ,identity  and more    WORD PLAY IN A WHIRLPOOL is a collaborative venture of Kenyan Poetry Tigress Nancy Ndeke and the Colorado Rockies Poetry Lioness  Susan Joyner-Stumpf (Review by Mbizo CHIRASHA)

In a rainstorm of words, we met. In a sonnet wind, our friendship shifted and shaped. From a Pearl-Moon of Prose, our wordplay intermingled. The REAL Storm begins in a maelstrom of converged poetry and prose that even Stars shall blink with poignant jealously and wonder; and profound paroxysms of esteem. We are two Imagery-filled, Wordplay Queens come together to combine our talents into one poetic force by creating this explosive Collaborated Book to embark upon a Literary Dimension of unrivaled, no holds barred proportions.
