Book signing

The past is your lesson

The present is your gift

The future is your poetry

Anita Bacha

My poetry book SOUL POETRY was yet another opportunity for me to travel and discover the reading world.

It’s incredible and worthy to note that books have a precious place in the heart of the millennial, our audience today and tomorrow.

At the Kuala Lumpur International Book Fair 2018, I realized that it’s a great joy to witness readers, young and old,buying and investing in our words, in our poetry.

London Book Fair17 

Going down High Street,Olympia,My heart overflows with nostalgia;

On tree tops,I behold

Blossoms of green and gold;

At the London Book Fair,

Writers and poets fare;

In the pages of each book,

I delve and I look,

Your name is engraved by the invisible

Hand of God.

Inspired by Shakespeare

‘From women’s eyes
This doctrine, I derive;
They sparkle still the right Promethean fire;
They are the books, the arts, and the academes,
That show, contain and nourish all the world’
William Shakespeare

My poetry book ‘Soul Poetry ‘ published by Partridge is hosted by the London Book Fair 2017 at the Poetry Pavilion from 14 to 16 March.

It’s a dream come true.

Last year, I had the disagreeable surprise to discover that my book was not on the display shelf of the exhibitor. I was on the verge of tears 😭. I had paid for the exhibition et voilà!

Luckily I had a copy of the book in my bag and an akward situation was saved,impromptu. A book fair worm, I have learnt that mishaps do occur at book fairs. Nobody is to be blamed.Nobody is conning you.

I resolved then and there, though,that I will ,in the future,exhibit my books myself!

Hence, in exactly one week, I am flying to London with 20+ copies of my book for exhibit at the Poetry Pavilion!

If you are at the LBF 2017, don’t forget to visit us!

FRANKFURTER BUCHMESSE

Par excellence, a major travel destination
Frankfurt entices the biggest books celebration
The content literary oriented will find displayed
Poetry, classical, horror on shelves neatly arranged
My flight on British Airways was booked
A voracious book worm was hooked
I have to make it to Frankfurt Buchmesse
I hazily jump out of bed, rush…rush
The alarm of my Smartphone rings too late
I am in the kitchen sipping hot chocolate
Half asleep in my pyjamas on the toilet seat
I compose and send an illustrated tweet
 Shampoo and body wash under the hot shower
Up the stairs I climb to switch off the timer
So many little but significant things to remember
When leaving home deserted mid October
A brand new fine linen voile white shirt
A stylish pleated black cotton skirt
 Colourful leg warmers and thermal socks
Ouch! The thermal pants pinch the buttocks
I have radiant energetic youthful looks
I am totally and absolutely in love with books
Trendy in knee high leather boots
Matching jacket and a satchel of books
I drive with confidence to Heathrow, Terminal five
My mind set in catching the early morning flight
