Brandon Pitts’ recommendation for A Map of Rain Days
I’ve decided to break my long social media silence to share this with you because poetic masterpieces are rare. A poet is lucky to have even one in a career. The first poem, “I Love You”, in @jennifer.hosein_poet.painter first collection of poems, “A Map Of Rain Days,” is quite a masterpiece. Each time I’ve been exposed to it, I’ve experienced it with awe, joy, and envy. Envy because I wish I had written it.
As for the rest of the collection, it is extremely consistent in its strength. Each poem is perfectly executed, and is a testament to the poet’s talent. Guernica has done a fine job in presenting this exceptional artist’s poetic statement for mass consumption. Buy this book!
