I don’t consider myself a poet but that’s an odd thing to announce given that I am next going to offer you to download cache, my poetry book. And for free too in the spirit of Valentine’s day and love!
Poetry is a form of writing that I’m compelled to engage in when I’m at a threshold in life, in between endings and beginnings, however subtle, as I was when most of the poems in cache were written.Life, as we all know, is full of enchanting thresholds and writing poetry is something I will probably always do in between other writing. So I’m excited and proud that cache is my first book! I hope you’ll like it as much as I do! Let me know what you think! Did I say that I’m excited?
Oh, what’s cache about? Here’s an excerpt from the the blurb on my publisher’s site:
Weedmark Publishing is proud to present Minna Salami’s first collection of poetry. This collection invites the reader to witness the simple magic and myth in life, love and the journeys along memory and identity.
Enjoy, share the love and thoughts!
