New Book SOUL PSALMS
Soul Psalms, a collection of poems from Zimbabwean American poet U-Meleni Mhlaba-Adebo, is filled with lyrical and vivid imagery that takes you on a emotional journey toward finding self. Exploring themes of family, love, body image, acceptance, and belonging, Mhlaba-Adebo’s words flow melodically and powerfully, bringing readers to a place of peace. The themes in Soul Psalms may be personal, but they appeal to a universal pull: the desire to become.
"....soothing and triumphant―an honest celebration of making it through, and much-needed poetry that one can honestly look to for comfort, love, and strength, silently shouting “Amen!” over and over again. Each poem takes you on a journey that is visual and "....a beautiful soul) is a breath of fresh air, a woman who defines what it is to have soul. I find Soul Psalms both soothing and triumphant―an honest celebration of making it through, and much-needed poetry that one can honestly look to for comfort, love... She is a gift and voice needed that speaks for us when we cannot articulate our struggles.”
