Intimate Poetry

Reflections: Floating Red Petunias is an intimate collection of poetry reflecting the experiences and emotions of a resilient young woman who finds her path and voice simply by showing love. Each work in this creative compilation encourages the reader to lean into the challenges of life, as the writer has, all while remaining on the map and under the radar.
“Yes, I read all of her poetry. For the most part you can feel her soul and know from her work that she loves deeply. I especially liked the tributes she did for her family members and she drops some important wisdom on us as well. I would love to have her in a workshop.  Her poetry represents a positive voice with a heartfelt message for life, love and family.”

~ Abiodun Oyewole, Last Poet in Harlem

“I liked the one regarding her sister and I enjoyed how she utilized God in her poetry as well. Thanks again for sharing.”

~ Che Lamora

“I love all of your poems.”

~ Sistah Nandi
