Legendary Poet Rita B.Rose , your poetry signatures freedom , resilience and woma-nity.


Rita B. Rose, this set of poems carries rarity, quest for freedom and resilience. It is spiritedly revolutionary in both presentation and meaning. This freestyle is diligently concocted with lyrical prowess and profound reason as diction is dished out freely without any horse- buckling. The poet, activist and writer in Rita Rose is a free spirit, a liberated morning bird humming hymns for the freedom of the other section of our humanity that is stigmatized and oppressed because of barricades set by cultural stereotypes, unrestrained buckles of political thuggery. Sections of our humanity crucified on the altar of historical barbarism and human savagery. Her writings interdict negative machinations perpetuated by arrogant purveyors of stigma and segregation in communities. Her versifications bravely contest for the dignity of LGBTQ and more over boldly pays homage to the grandmothers, mothers and daughters. Women of valor still living and those long gone to be embraced by the glorious hands of almighty, their legacy is remembered and respected. Heroines of past and present. Poet Rose is a representative of women dignity and sisterly resilience. Her poetry is extraordinary, pregnant with the messages of parity, reason and equity. Today, TIME OF THE POET REPUBLIC celebrates diversity, prowess and dexterity with internationally profiled artist, widely published poet and hallowed human freedoms activist Rita B. Rose.

Naturalist Georgette Howington walks onto literary podium singing Earth Poetry.


I have read poems dressed in hot gowns of political metaphor. Most verses are fat with protest as Juvenalian satire is always carved onto the plaques of resistance as word-slingers spew resilience against unending earthly struggles. Poet Georgette Howington creatively changes the regular political narrative, she confidently struts onto the literary podium and her earth poetry dons green imagery. The rarity of her subject- lines is profoundly astounding given the current trending settings of pain yawn and groan. Poet Howington delves onto a unique but a special theme of environment and soil sciences. A multi-gifted wordsmith, environmentalist and conservationist. Her dictionary is in sync with natural life . We interdependent and interconnect to both earthly and water ecosystems. They play a pivotal role in our lives and we profoundly attach more value to them. Poems by Howington are gems of green revolution and glints of climate consciousness. TIME OF THE POET REPUBLIC embraces diversity of ideas, cultural tolerance, inclusivity and creativity in the personality of distinguished environmentalist, agronomist and green earth revolutionary poet Georgette Howington- (Blurb by Mbizo CHIRASHA).

Writer Jambiya Kai pens a hybrid mix that rattles the marrow and bone of die-hard dictators and lords of war.


Powerful writer and essayist pen a rhythmic spirited    hybrid mix of mind boggling verse and a soul touching story of unwarranted butchery, demise, pain, loneliness and   a sudden -death caused grief in a world that is vastly wretched by bloody crimes, goriness, hate, carelessness, banditry, terrorism, greed and widespread disrespect of lives. I stand with this powerful message, this strong message must rattle the hate hardened marrow and bone of die-hard dictators, lords of war and terrorist groupings disguising to be architects of democracy and repentant peaceniks.  We stand right now amidst xenophobia perpetuated cemeteries, racism marked graves and a whole lot of savagery and barbarism. This strong literary message by a Poet, Lyricist, Peace maker and story teller in Jambiya Kai requires leadership from America to Africa to do a cross check on how they have plundered lives, the hope and promise of a great united world. Let’s repent. Thank you great story teller Jambiya KAI for penning this bold and vigorous hybrid mix.  We  are proud  this  powerful and well writ message . We pay tribute to talent , truth  and  a diversity  of ideas. ALUTA CONTINUA-( Blurb by Mbizo CHIRASHA).
