Legendary Writer and renowned Poetry Artist Richard Modiano, your poetry sizzles with the richness of ripe grapefruit growing out from the vast fertile lands around the great river Gariep. The incessant dance -inciting beat throbbing from your rhythmic verses is like ritual song passionately sung by motherly angels from the inner depth of San Fernando Valleys. The realities and complexities of living trends in human society as presented in your poetry set is a correct signal of how you as a doyen of truth speaks spiking truth against wrong revolutions and warped mentality. Your literary consciousness awakens us from the deep slumber of wrong life terrains and teaches us to walk so righteously. Your submission is a poetic baptism of our wretched earth gripped by the hard grit of paradox. Your head pricking spiking truth is revolutionary. And your loyalty to the poetry kindred is unmatchable. In this your prolific set of your poems have dedicated to another great wordsmith Rob Plath and acclaimed Writer Danny Baker. Wonderful. TIME OF THE POET REPUBLIC People are seized with great pride and are fervently tickling with profound joy that you agreed to be featured and profiled on this our up and rising digital Writers Centre.
