Welcome to the Amaha portal.
Every bit of poetry or poetic-sounding things I choose to share with you, my keyboard and stratosphere finds its origin from this page.
Quick run-down of my style/influences:
– I like old, English, big-grammar, esoteric stuff of largely male, African voices i.e. Wole Soyinka, Chinua Achebe, J. Pepper Clark Bekederemo, you see where this is going right? Right.
– Women and the feminine experience are my muses and feature recurringly.
– I like referencing stuff that launches the reader on a Google/Encyclopedia/Library search. Read a book. Explore, then come back and read the poem. Bliss.
– Sometimes, I just write whatever the heck my Chi decides to gift me with and act like I have a clue. I may just be as in the dark as you when it comes to what I wrote.
Hope you enjoy the reading. *Big Smile*
