BLACK DAISY IN A WHITE LIMOUSINE: 77 POEMS The Art of Life, Love & Family on PREORDER!!!!!!!!!!
“I will be signing all preorders on this new edition re-release of my book of poems! Some of you have waited patiently since early this year to purchase a copy so I thought it would be cool to add a personal touch. Thanks again for your support and appreciating poetry! It means so much to me ” ~ Yashi
Excerpt from the poem
I am in myself I am in somebody else
The sky and lakes will feel our pain
‘Cause we are so round and so vain
Black trees could very well follow
And yet the ground still loves our feet
It knows absolutely nothing
But every secret in humanity
I found myself the day that I ignored myself
Like a kiss enlivens and wrecks a contented soul
The sun makes me feel so forgiving and grateful I cry
Its service is so perfect, so unselfish
So painfully right, so anxiously on time
Reflects us in our prime
One day in humanity
Don’t thrash yourself all about
Wanting to find all the secrets to s’quell your doubts
Truth is in reflection…A dream is in foresight…
Being is nativity, Purity is passion
I know some of you disagree right now
Your wheels run the opposite of my rambling about
And see that is the essence, the beauty, the glory, the secrecy
If you wish to understand our species in humanity.
Black Daisy in a White Limousine: 77 Poems is an urban anthology of modern challenges, passages, spirituality, sexuality, love and family. This provocative collection of contemporary poetry eloquently embraces a multitude of subjects from the coming of age experiences of a teenage girl with the inevitable loss of love and innocence to an impassioned spirit in hopes of becoming a modern-day renaissance woman.
Filled with humor, cyniciscm, courage, vision, and unique twist of perception, you’ll walk away with a colorful outlook and the sense of a well worn journey that lands safely in a place of strength and hope. (I’m on a beautiful smile of endless sunshine / Music on my fears / Words trace these lovely tree lines / Prancing on the horizon / Wrapped in peaceful white)
At once embattled and courageous are the poems depicting the triumphant self-realization that comes with battling and eventually overcoming her own mental illness. Never self-indulgent, her naked depiction of her own battle portrays both confusion and angst yet seems to never lose sight of hopeful anticipation (So sensitive the untold are / Moving along like sound / Either living deeply bruised or forgotten / Or eternally found)
“Yashi’s poems are passionate and provocative. They include reflections about mental illness, but address themes to which just about everyone can relate.”
–Michael J. Fitzpatrick, Executive Director, NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness).
