“Women’s Poetry; Within and Beyond Shores”
By Dr. Shamenaz Bano
This book is an anthology featuring women poets from 18 countries and edited by Dr. Shamenaz Bano
The surprise of being included in this powerful anthology came a couple of weeks ago, and thank you Deborah Brooks Langford for including my 3 poems into this collection of women’s poetry. The surprize has utterly taken my breath away.
Barely reading 5 pages and the index that has these women and their bios, I have been brought to tears of great joy. This is such a gift to be included and I’m overwhelmed by these women. Where these women are located, includes 18 countries. You can read their short stories and 3 poems.
How can one say thank you enough. It is impossible for me to express my gratitude. Just being with these sister’s of all faiths, is mesmerizing and spellbinding to say it mildly. Being cliche can’t help but say, WOWed, Humbled, Awed, and express my gratitude that is not in the English language … Just is a great big acronym: “OMG!”
Please, not for the sake of anyone making money, but for the sake of hearing and reading women’s poetry from all over the world, I can’t urge you enough, to buy a copy. I promise you will cry, laugh and realize that whether we are from Tennessee, Colorado, Romania, Saudi Arabia, India, Mexico, Ghana, Bengal, Allahabad, Australia, England or The UK, Canada, Cuttack, Ireland, Poland, Athens, Uzbekistan, Pittsburg, Philippines, Maharashtra, Tulsa OK, Luxembourg, Italy, London, Jerusalem, Iran, Egypt, Gaza, California, Iraq, and other places that I didn’t see while reading, this collection is a must read. And, oh yes, there is my contribution to this poetic anthology, and I’m from The Piney Woods of East Texas.
Absolutely floored in great adoration Dr. Shamenaz Bano and Deborah Brooks Langford (who sent my poetry in to be included)… Thank you! 🌹
