Tigress Nancy Ndeke brews yet another fresh-mix concoction of poetry , credo and reason.


The reader will find many questions and few answers, and that is because life is a constant quest. The reader is then afforded a chance to think, and in doing so, possibly empower the self to a better human. Topics range from why divisions exist between races, to the vagaries of injustices as recorded by history. The great theme of being in mortal man ruling kin with the hands of self-appointed god-head raises the question of morality and truth as presented by those with an agenda other that general good to all. Love, whether for fellow man, Country of deity are themes that preoccupy many a poem. The motif of the Bridge which this book borrows so generously from, is symbol of the interconnectedness all there is in our world. From past eternity, through history and movement of people to belief systems that pit one group against another. The book asks for the reader to engage his/her mind in a renewed manner. There is hope for humanity even at the worst of times. Nancy Ndeke is an avid reader who writes as much. Nancy draws her writings from both observed living and personal experiences. She is a child of nature by the fate of birth having been born and bred in a rural setting before climate change vagaries became a reality. Through school and travel, her eyes experienced the wholeness of the other enriching her further. Her work experience in was ravaged countries further brought to her the sad reality and tragedy of wars-( Blurb by NANCY NDEKE)

Srilankan Poet Devika Brendon masters the art of ParaDox.


The aroma of her paradoxical verses is like the scent lingering the bread baking backyards. The lyrical sting smells of half cigars stubbed for yet another smoking joint to come. Devika Brendon masters the art of paradox ,   her poetry is the string of puffed smoke coiling  off an intact cigarette stick to mingle  with oxygen and dissolve  into earthly wind  but sometimes  the smoke dies into squashed ash and is trembled upon  by the same smoker  after enjoying ,the aroma, the puff and the dance of smoke into the universe. Devika is a keen seer of life and the living, a brilliant chronicler, a thorough philosopher and a word economist, she tells medulla riveting stories through bold poetry lines. Paradox is the natural ingredient, while verbal economics concocted with reason and lyrical dexterity qualifies her poetry for a literary balanced diet. Paradox is the carbohydrate, metaphor is the protein, imagery is the Vitamin B12, Potassium is reason and verbal dexterity becomes Calcium. Readers are safe.   Devika Brendon is an accomplished editor, literary arts project expert, renowned writer and a brilliant page poet. TIME OF THE REPUBLIC brings is rooted in bringing to its readers a diversity of ideas, real poetry, revolutionary artistry and literary consciousness.  I implore our readers to take time grazing real poetry on the piece, ELECTION FEVER.

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.

Turkish  Poet Mert Perk mastered the Economics of Words


MERT PERK   have mastered the art of economizing diction. SUPERB. while his verses are turgid with grandiose reason. Every line is a blowing gun, smashing down walls of falsehoods, mass consumerism and torn lampposts hypocrisy. The granite hard truth glued in the bone and marrow of his poetry smacks the hypocritical humanity, in his quest to retain sanity and true consciousness on this our wretched earth crumbled by oppression, killings, racism and stigma.  In another poem Perk plead with humanity to imitate God, here the Poet holds his sickle to remind the world of the vitality of dignity and integrity. After reading Perk, it dawned that surely the world has lost morality, morality is blown away by greediness, cheap conspiracy, violence and wantonly decadence. TIME OF THE POET compliment this insightful poetry by featuring the poet and his poesy in our publication. We always cherish to archive beauty, intellect, diverse ideas, promise and prowess. Poet MERT PERK is destined to the Poetry Promise land. Keep Writing, Aluta Continua- (Blurb by Mbizo CHIRASHA)
