November Picks: Poetry Month

Updated: Feb 19, 2021

This month is very special! I wanted to do some kind of special months with the book club and no better way than to start with Poetry! So this month, we have three picks that are three amazing collections of poems that I read and just loved so much that it had to be them! And as a poet, I find it kinda sad that poems books are most of the time excluded from book clubs.

With all of those poems you will find yourself to relate to so many of them while they are different yet similar: they reach and grab your soul.

I hope you will enjoy those books as much as I did!


"Kissing Shadows" Danielle Martin

As a Caribbean woman and mother, Danielle Martin crafts poetry with a distinct vibe and intensity innate of her experiences and culture. However, she believes we are all versions of each other. Meeting at different stages or sometimes barely touching as we slide through life's chaotic dimensions. Writing is her solace and "Kissing Shadows: Caribbean Love Poems" is her first published Anthology of poetry. Additionally, her work has been featured in several publications, Ariel Chart, Claudius Speaks, Free Lit Magazine, the 2016 and 2017 Poetry Marathon Anthologies and most recently the Organic Poet. Danielle currently spends her time engaged in writing workshops, being lovingly amazed and or annoyed by one teenager in particular and holding on to the mantra whilst drinking coffee... "And this too shall pass". Look out for new work from this emerging writer, once she defeats her nemesis...procrastination.
