Excerpt

"The relationship with our men should mirror that between young lovers. Eagerly awaiting the arrival of their beloved mate, melting under the tender touch, finally succumbing to the moment after hearing sweet serenades of love, longing, and anticipation.

The beginning starts with a simple caress, a calming chord that cherishes their contribution to their Community. Family community. Work Community. Church Community. Everyday Community. Shoulder to shoulder, the young couple embrace,

Planning for the new life that will blossom out of their love.

They will shoulder the responsibility for their offspring together.

At the climax, we yell, scream, and celebrate in quiet solitude about these special men in our life."

FROM THE POEM "BLACK NIGHT"



Professional Reviews

Early Reviews
Colors of a Man: Tribute to African-American Men, definitely delivers as the title would suggest. It is a must-have item for your Christmas wish list. It is a book that speaks to all black women, and to the generations. All of the poems are specifically "engineered to be multiple metaphors," with various meanings depending on the individual reader. The way the author weaves hip-hop like poetic rhythms, with poetic techniques such as alliteration, hyperbole, personification, echopation, and onomatopoeia and then combines the poetic rhyme rhapsodies into the final poetic masterpieces, is pure poetic genius.



Early reviews
"thoughtful and meaningful"

Booksellers
"this is not normal poetry, it makes you cry and think"
