Welcome to the November 2019 Blue Heron Review Featured Author spot. This month, we are delighted to shine a light on the talents of one of our treasured contributors, Kenneth Pobo, author of the recently released collection, The Antlantis Hit Parade (Clare Songbirds Publishing House, 2019), as well as Dindi Expecting Snow (Duck Lake Books, 2019).
The two poems featured are prose poems — each having great depth. We learn about expectations and being true to the self. We learn about hiding behind a curtain and then stepping out into the world with one’s whole being. These are open, honest, courageous poems about acceptance and how to find this within. What journey will you take of your own, after reading these poems? What part of yourself needs nurturing and celebrating? Pobo wants us to look bravely at ourselves, with a loving and compassionate heart. These poems sing of truth, and the freedom that comes from walking into the open field of — I AM.
