Usiku was a member of my now closed support group. and provided us with support and encouragement. Usiku has had the courage to chase his dream and works hard in the pursuit of his craft.

Eloquence: Rhythm & Renaissance is inspiring and uplifting poetry, prose and short stories.
The book provides a unique experience for each as we read and re-read, peeling back the layers of meaning. As Usiku writes in his title poem,

Each person understood in their own way
Appreciating, absorbing, appreciating.
(from “Eloquence”)

From his play on words “(L)imitations”, “impostors” to nature coiled in humanity, Usiku shares insights of life’s journey in this thought-provoking book.

Usiku’s soul liquefies words as they flow in rivulets across the pages evoking our spirit, memories and call to nurture nature.

of nature
and the everyday
oven just warm enough.
(from “Composure”)

We often seek inspiring quotes to uplift and guide us. Eloquence contains powerful and motivating writing that makes us mindful of the extraordinary in ordinary. Eloquence: Rhythm & Renaissance is filled with passion and creativity that is wonderfully refreshing. I highly recommend this reading.

Congratulations Usiku on gaining this nomination. I am proud to know you.
