The formulae attained by your presentation as entwinned with heart- cave throbbing beat raves and cranks up my musical prone psyche AND I dance to the ritual of this mesmerizing rhythm, your lines carry the literary verve that coils us into realms of suspense , that quest to see further and discern more from a creative wonderment .Your unique and blood rippling lyrical vibe sends readers into poetic trances and as they rose from the trance , they are already transfigured . As much as your poetry is more historical and its subject matters also dips their life -hardened fingers into matters of moral decadence, political decay and economic malaise. Ukraine is a country associated with a myriad of political connotations, such name-dropping explains a more broader experiences of the geo- political- historical references of wars fought, won and lost, lives lived and lost , long journeys walked and later ended from the red earth of Zanzibar into social corridors of Ukraine up to the rich Amazon basin of Brazil. The well versed poet is a wonderful traveler, a well-versed chronicler, intelligent adventurer and prolific griot. Her knowledge of global geo-politics, world economics, cultures and historical events is extraordinary. Real poetry speaks of people and speaks to people. The poet griot has spoken and is still speaking. Eugenia Hepworth Petty ,It is a great wonderment to graze through your prolific writings. TIME OF THE POET REPUBLIC remains rooted in Exclusivity, dexterity and diversity. Aluta Continua- (Blurb by Mbizo CHIRASHA).

Patience Chiyangwa, I got stewed in your sizzling pot hot with nerve -jamming imagery and psyche-wrecking metaphor . Real poetry smacks your dozing mind and then you are re-awakened to see images that seemed invisible of late .It is when each verse beat drums inside your heart- caves . The reality of real poetry sits steadily onto readers belly , the pangs and the pain are ingredients of the consciousness abound . Real poetry bulldozes through uncollected rubbish dumps on the bottoms of cities and exposes the wretchedness within . It dives its way through cholera infested drinking water holes and beat with the frail hearts of dying communities . It smacks heavily on the corruption hardened faces of unrepentant charlatans and double- chinned zealots. Patience Chiyangwa brings a new dose of literary consciousness. Her poetry taste both maturity and prowess. Chiyangwa is an advocate of the hungry , the poor , the raped , the orphaned and the rejected. She is one of the prolific pioneers of Zimbabwean spoken word and page poetry. We are proud to publish creativity , diversity and dexterity in the person of Legendary
Constantin Severin paints POEMS into murals of life . His philosophical but mind tilting verse is concoction of visual imagery and mesmerizing lyrical prowess.The prolific artist in him paints words into life , the rhythm in his lines and the echo of his brush are heart -buzzing drum throbs of a beautiful ancient village song with sopranos of sorrows, tenors of promise and baritones of pain . I love this diligently brewed poetry beverage , revolutionary in both form and content.It is a unique literary refreshment , reason is profoundly intriguing and meaning is cinematographic. Subjected matters displayed in this extraordinary set of writings are thought -raving ,the poet touches subjects mental health , poverty, rejection and homosexuality with the mastery of a skilled stone carver ,the revelations are astounding . He paints all these issues diligently on the billboard of life and that memories and experiences of such are carved permanently on to the mental switch of each and every reader. The poems are highly confessional as much as they carry the marrow and bone of moral instruction , they are didactic.
