Thanks Reuben Woolley for featuring this poem today on I am not silent poet (October 26, 2018).
Today I woke up to a nice surprise: I appear as a featured poet on G Jamie Dedes’ site The Poet by Day, an amazing information hub for poets & writers. It was not enough for her to feature just three of my poems! She almost staged my whole WordPress site, showcasing my bio, photo, academic work reference & my chapbook & other poems’ links! Bloody! Who does that? She has been extremely supportive of my work all through, I can’t thank her enough. But this ain’t no surprise, those who know Jamie know she’s doing a great job not only for the literary community but for social justice, sustainability and peace! Cheers Jamie!

Delighted to have a poem included in the new release from Better Than Starbucks (May 2018 Vol. III No. V; print & online)! Many thanks to the editors for featuring “to be is to bleed away“. Another poem that takes root in Cuba and draws crosses under the moving shadows of José Marti & Ismaelillo.
