Lion Scream Syllabic Poetry and Poetry Treasures on National Poetry Month

Poetry, with its unique blend of language, rhythm, imagery, and emotion, has a timeless allure that captivates us so I suggest you consider during Poetry Month Lion Scream, Syllabic Poetry About Southern African Wildlife by Robbie Cheadle and Poetry Treasures 2, Relationships by Kaye Lynne Booth, Robbie Cheadle, Colleen M Chesebro. I think that these poetry volumes have the power to captivate us and to resonate with us.

Lion Scream, Syllabic Poetry About Southern African Wildlife by Robbie Cheadle

Lion Scream is a graphic collection of poetry and prose. The book portrays the author’s experiences with South African wildlife and the growing impact of the Sixth Mass Extinction and Climate Change on the natural environment.

Lion Scream, Syllabic Poetry About Southern African Wildlife by Robbie Cheadle

I found this volume of poetry and wildlife accounts to tap into the depth and complexity of human emotions. By addressing the environment, it expresses thoughts and feelings that are often difficult to articulate in prose. For me it evoked a wide range of emotions, from joy and love to sadness and grief.

Through striking imagery, this poetry fosters empathy by providing insights into the wildlife’s daily endurance (Sixth Mass Extinction and Climate Change), allowing us to see the world through different perspectives.

Poetry is an art form that encourages creativity and innovation. Poets often push the boundaries of language and form, experimenting with different styles, structures, and techniques to convey their messages in fresh and unexpected ways – and this is what Robbie Cheadle achieved, while sharing a warning on humankind’s impact on wildlife in general, and on that of Southern Africa in special.

Award-winning, bestselling author, Robbie Cheadle, has published thirteen children’s book and three poetry books. Her work has also appeared in poetry and short story anthologies.

Robbie also has two novels published under the name of Roberta Eaton Cheadle and has horror, paranormal, and fantasy short stories featured in several anthologies under this name.

Poetry Treasures 2, Relationships by Kaye Lynne Booth, Robbie Cheadle, Colleen M Chesebro

A collection of poetry from the poet/author guests of Robbie Cheadle on the “Treasuring Poetry” blog series on Writing to be Read in 2021. Relationships are golden and each of Arthur Rosch, Elizabeth Merry, D Avery, Robbie Cheadle, Harmony Kent, Lauren Scott, Julespaige, Leon Stevens, Colleen M. Chesebro, Miriam Hurdle, Marjorie Mallon, and Lynda McKinney Lambert pay poetic tribute to their most intense personal moments.

Poetry Treasures

Poetry Treasures reminded me that creativity and innovation can be inspiring, challenging me to think beyond the conventional and explore new possibilities of expression.

These poems invited me to slow down, reflect, and contemplate the intricacies of life. They provide me with moments of quiet introspection, allowing me to pause and ponder the complexities of existence, relationships, nature, and the human experience. I liked that these verse encouraged me to look inward, to explore new thoughts and emotions, and gain deeper insights into myself and the world around me.

If you read this far, I think that you will agree with me that we don’t need a poetry month or a poetry day to enjoy poetry. Poetry provides a space for self-expression and freedom of thought. Poets have the liberty to experiment with language, form, and content, expressing their innermost thoughts, dreams, and struggles without constraints. Poetry can be a means of personal expression, allowing us to give voice to our emotions, perspectives, and experiences in a way that is uniquely our own.
