Crossroads ~ Winds of Love by Jude Itakali ~ A Beautiful collection of Poems, Prose, and Short Stories

CROSSROADS (Winds of love): Poetry and Prose Kindle Edition

In the corridors of love, at the crossroads of loneliness, we stand at our most vulnerable. As the winds of love swirl, we are often ill prepared for the portends and promises that they carry. The longing, lust, fear and deception. But also the hope, renewal and lessons of love. In this book, may we be strengthened by the memory of things we have survivedy, soothed with the understanding of perspective, and comforted with hope of things to come.May these poems, prose and short stories touch each of us in our own particular way.

Here’s a peek at the back cover summary;

In the corridors of love,
At the crossroads of loneliness,
We stand at our most vulnerable.
As the winds of love swirl, we are often ill-prepared for the portends and promises they carry;
The longing, fear, and deception.
The intimacy, and the horrors of heartbreak.
But also the hope, renewal and strength from the trials we have survived.

May these Poems, Prose, and Short Stories touch each in their own particular way,
And bring us all perspective, compassion, hope and ultimately;
Love!

CROSSROADS (Winds of love)

I truly believe there’s something in this book for us all;

Shivers,
Blushes,
Empathy,
Awareness,
A cacophony of emotions,
And much more.
All these under the shadow,
or the light;
Of love
You’ll find a wide array of poetic styles and forms
A blend of structured and free verse poetry,
With a sprinkle of short stories that might take you to all sorts of places.

My Thoughts

Not giving up on love is the perfect beginning, for in my humble opinion Jude Itakali’s wonderful new book has been written for us all, in the approaching aftermath of this deadly virus.

It reminds us that it really is LOVE that keeps this world turning around – and keeps us looking after everyone and everything on this planet.

This post is late, because of confusion over the release dates. My apologies, Jude…

My favourite poem

INTERLUDE

Being alone does not mean one is lonely

For solitude is a gift

A peaceful chance to grow

And while depression may lie in the cold loneliness

The warmth of peace can also be found

The heart will always long for love

And the soul will always long for peace

A glass half full is a perfect way to start

The soul; the foundation for the heart
