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.

The newest collection of poems (October 2020) is a book length poetic adaptation of 114 poems in Kenneth Rexroth’s 1971 publication (New Directions) of his One Hundred Poems from the Chinese.Poet, editor and publisher Michael Dickel (Is A Rose Press) and his team worked on developing a stunning presentation, with a world book launch scheduled from Milwaukee on Nov. 11, 7:30 pm CST. “By a Lake Near a Moon: Fishing with the Chinese Masters” was a delight to work on, especially as I had spent many previous years developing Holocaust response poems, some short and some very long. I admit I was looking for something to help cleanse my old spirit of such dark times. Perhaps I can send a flyer from the host, Boswell Books of Milwaukee. The next book project is accepted for possibly late 2021 or early 2022, newer poems under the working title, “Hello There,” a collection of mixed poems from years ago, and a few months ago. I hope these three newer books will add to earlier books based on Conquistador narratives, primarily translated Spanish narratives. Who knows what’s next, or if there will be a “next” in these Covid-19 times.

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.
