Blog tour highlights and Poetry

Blog tour highlights and Poetry
Author Me (Jude Itakali) 14/05/2021

Hi everyone. It’s just under three days to the live release of my new book; CROSSROADS (Winds of love) on Amazon.

In this post, I’ll be sharing clips from the Pre-order blog promotion tour. The blogs and websites that hosted and promoted this book are amazing so I hope you read on and explore them.

I’ve written and placed some poetry within this post, which is close to a few themes that are found in the book.

The ocean rages and the falls cascade
Thrills rise, then plummet to impetuous depths
And I think of you
Where once there was love
Now pain remains

If you have been following my blog for a while you probably know that I really admire Jude’s blog and I am a huge fan of his writing. I was so happy to hear that he had put out a book and it was now available to preorder. I wanted to share this news with you guys because…

‘I wish you could stay perfect
But each failed love
And each broken heart
Has painted you anew… ‘

All that was beautiful, now mocks me
The resplendent night sky, hides secrets in plain sight
The vermillion sunrise, paints scars in bloody hues
And I hide from all their beauty; because it reminds me of you

Jude has taken part in Tanka Tuesday for a few years now. Each week I look forward to his special brand of poetic magic. Welcome, Jude!

My refuge is darkness
Don’t let them see your pain!
My hope is in solace
Search deep for purpose!
The love I seek is evasive
But on my own,
Its scents grow stronger

If you enjoy beautifully written poems that stir your blood, this book is a must read…

Anyone already familiar with Jude’s skill in blending poetic forms with prose and storytelling is sure to love this collection, as is anyone who appreciates sumptuous, sensuous poetry delivered by a unique poetic voice. Highly recommended!
