Grief on Painted Sheets is a permanent proof that grief cannot gag creativity, even as the beauty of poetic expressions cannot dull pain or relegate tears. As you read this collection, expect the unexpected, because the pain-propelled train of thoughts in this collection will launch you into the center of mourning and keeps the screams of the victims echoing.
The beauty, duty, terrors and errors of Eros are the definition of (wo)man often publicly snubbed...and privately demonized. Words of Eros collects forty-six unpretentious poems that focus on love and sex in ready apples planted in the middle of thoughts.
Depression eats deep into the soul and becomes the thread with which this collection is made. We Who Sowed Hurt & Beaded Pains collects depression in a solemn voice that celebrates souls in need of redemption. A ready call for empathy in a sincere voice that will speak to even the hardest hearts.
I SAID THESE WORDS is a collection of poems on a rainbow of themes – politics, religion, love, Society, and self. In this collection, which is a worthy sequel to Kukogho’s first book, the much acclaimed WHAT CAN WORDS DO, the poet makes far reaching statements which he claims in the title, I SAID THESE WORDS. The poet, in his undeniably unique versification style, managed to wrap his opinions around the mind of the reader. It is easy to be drawn into this book – with its beautiful form and rainbow of themes, presented with fresh, original metaphors.
With the earth of structure and the air of rhyme, the water of rhythm and the fire of passion, Kukogho Iruesiri Samson weaves his own brand of poetry, keeping faith with the old traditions, yet inventing new ones. This collection of poems addresses much, from the struggle to bury memories of bitter childhood to the agitated demand for a better world; if Poetry is, sometimes, difficult to fathom, you will find the effort, in this case, vastly rewarding. Like the author himself asks, “What can words do?” In this collection he shows that they can do anything; that they can do everything. ~ Dike-Ogu Chukwumerije Poet, Author of ‘The Revolution Has No Tribe’ and other books
