PUBLIC PRESENTATION OF SU’EDDIE VERSHIMA AGEMA’S BRING OUR CASKET HOME: Tales one shouldn’t tell

Copy of BRiNG OUR CASKET HOME coverOkay, thinking poetry that is not regular? Thinking about some fresh verse to get you thinking, smiling and just going like: ‘IF this is POETRY, I’m all for POETRY!!’ Okay, here’s a chance to be there at the official public presentation of my first collected poems: BRING OUR CASKET HOME: Tales one shouldn’t tell

CUT THE STORY SHORT, tentatively this is what we are looking at:
DATE: Saturday June 8th 2013
VENUE: Merit House, Maitama, Abuja.
TIME: 12 noon (World Standard Time)

The collection encloses the experiences that is life culminating to final moments. Beneath it all rings a strong song of hope. You would find the writings different – inspired by different times. The poems all come together to form these – a casket of verse in tales one shouldn’t tell….

….a few lines from within:

in the pitch of our enduring night
we raise hopes to the light
in vigils believing the promise of the sun:
there would always be dawn.

FROM THE BLURB:

One of the most eloquent, passionate and imaginative collection of poems I have read in a while…A reminder that the artiste is still the sensitive point of the society – Odachi Elizabeth Onogwu (Literary Scholar and Critic)
With the poise of a minstrel Su’eddie draws us into the strings of his messages with rhythms that transcend caskets and losses – Unoma Azuah (Multiple Award Winning writer and critic)

These are deep words from a deep mind reflecting on the deep things of life. – Maria Ajima (Multiple Award Winning Writer and Scholar)

The poems in this collection are essentially occasional poems – …the occasions have been transformed into either or both things: [1] a peg on which emotions have been hung out to drip-dry, and/or [2] a subliminal map, detailing the major landmarks in that most taxing of journeys: the journey from the head to the heart/from the heart to the head. – Hyginus Ekwuazi (Award winning poet and Scholar)

Hoping to see you there…. We would keep you updated.
