I came across Eloghosa a while back on twitter and I promptly followed her after just a quick glance through her TL and tumblr page. She has a way with words that is just too beautiful to read and never fails to give me life.
When I heard of the woman in bloom exhibition which she was going to be showing some of her works at, I was definitely going to show face (I blogged about it in my weekend bits post here).
I was so happy when I came to her section of the exhibition and noticed these short bits of poetry. I knew then and there, that I had to share the beauty that is her words with you all.
I hope you enjoy these as much as I did.
“Listen to me,
don’t let anyone steal your joy or your peace.
– My mother.
God. Don’t wait for the edge.
Sieve the voices.
So you’ll finally hear The One who has
always called you Free.
This is what I love about poetry and words- it shifts something within you.
Eloghosa Osunde is a photographer and writer. Although she exhibited some of her photographs alongside the poetry, it was the poetry that really got to me.
You can view more of her works on her instagram and tumblr.
