Today, I am delighted to welcome poet and writer, Jude Itakali, to Robbie’s Inspiration with a post about his inaugural poetry and pross collection, Crossroads (Winds of love): Poetry and Prose.
Why I love and write poetry
I love poetry because of its ability to touch many people, and yet still touch each one in a particular way. I admire the creativity it gives and the outlet for emotions that might otherwise fester within. The ability to exercise the breadth of language to pass on a message has always captivated me because it touches and evokes much deeper than plain direct words.
I write poetry because through it, I can share concerns, happiness, emotions and awareness in ways that people can read and enjoy freely and openly.
A sample of Jude’s powerful poetry:
Caressed by a lover’s lips
Sweet with potential
She wakes with forever’s promise
