3 Poetess Mentors​.​.​.

from Nhojj Poetry Vol. 2 by Nhojj



I love writing poetry... but I probably wouldn’t have started this practice without the influence of 3 Queens, whose words inspired me. Happy Poetry Month!


I want to shout out
3 poets who guided me 
3 poets whose pages inspired me
To write, share, develop 
My own formula for truth

I already mentioned Godmother 
Maya Angelou
Extending a good word to help 
Lift the people up onto higher ground

Now let me show sum love to another 
Nikki Giovanni showed me how
Poetry could be easy 
Like Sunday morning... I found Utopia
Turning digital page after page
Devouring meals prepared in the kitchen of her soul
Encouraged I went in search of other poets and found 

A kindred sister Alex Elle 
Lighting candles around the block with her 
Healing Neon Soul 
Short verses reading like lullabies
I played through the night until the sun rose at dawn
