My short collection of poetry Collection Of Chaos is out from a new and power packed Leaky Boot Press, England. Editor James Goddard ( himself an excellent writer, mentor, editor) has done a fabulous job with it. Without him this would have remained just another dream. Acclaimed author and multimedia artist Kris Saknussemm has written a heartwarming foreword for the book.
The cover art is a painting by talented artist Rachel Slade .
Big thanks to all who encouraged and helped me break my mental barriers.
While I await my author’s copies here is an initial response of a wonderful fellow poet and published authorWilliam. B. Burkholder –
“On Tiku’s “Collection of Chaos”…
I am still in the process of digesting this tasty morsel of poetic beauty.
However, the first thing that comes to mind is as follows, and for some reason, I feel that my mere words shall not do justice to the exquisite beauty with which these lines are written…
Powerful, miraculous, extreme in its undertaking to convey the heart and mind of a universal writer, who not only speaks to some, but to all.
In a far distant land, where kismet thoughts reside, and poetic verse is unleashed to quell and calm the troubled and broken hearted, the view afforded to the reader by this single poet, captures elements of the human condition and the heart. I am enthralled to have the privilege to read these works, and I am blessed to have Tikuli as a friend and poetic colleague.
If you have not already, please do yourself a kind favor and purchase this collection today.
My formal review of these works shall come soon, however, my excitement about this work cannot be contained.
On a 1 to 5 star scale… “Collection of Chaos” rates a fabulous 6!
W. B. Burkholder”
Thank you William. Your words mean a lot.
