  • Come Into My Garden Volume 1

    “Poems written during the “LONG WAIT”

    Imagine the all-consuming yet innocent young love of a 15 year old boy and a 14 year old girl. Suddenly all contact is lost due to a conspiring grandmother who intercepted and destroyed U. S. mail. 60 years roll by. They each had married and raised large families and they meet again. Time passes. Another six years before they are both widowed and then…

  • Dee Dee’s Inner Most Thoughts

    Dee Dee’s Inner Most Thoughts is a collection of my thoughts from religion to sensuality. Here’s hoping everyone enjoys reading my work as much as I enjoyed writing it. If these works inspire just one person to think just a little longer on the topics within I’ve made a difference.

  • Encouragement: My Book of Psalms

    The book “encourage” is written to enlighten the hearts of others, and say there is a way out of any given situation. It will mention when losing hope and feel depress; there is someone you can turn to. There is encouragement in death, and the excitement of love written from the heart. In this book I would like others to be reminded of the pass and excited for the future and given to the present. There will be similes of age and youth troubles and peace to help individuals to build beyond present issues of life. We can’t predict what will happen but can be prepared for what take place. Thanks Christa L. Tarpley

  • Escape Artist An Anthology

    Escape Artist was first published in November of 1995, and this anniversary edition contains virtually all the same poems.

    Let me quote from my description from the original version: “Escape Artist tells of my retreat into my little world, the protective cocoon from which I observe life.” The poems are, in a simple phrase, “life, according to me”. Most of the experiences are personal, but some are borrowed from others. The observations, however, are all mine. Welcome to the “hideout of the visionary”.

    One key difference worth noting here: I have added an extra poem – ‘in loco parentis’ – that did not appear in the earlier version because it did not exist at the time.

  • Flowerchild

    Flowerchild, Oscar Kamazima’s second collection and his best work yet, is a fusion of self-love meets poetic magic. This collection is not only about a person learning/forced to grow by the world but also allowing themselves to grow even in the midst of all that goes around. Giving themselves the room for self-growth, self-care, and to be able to love themselves authentically in a crooked society/period. Flowerchild resembles more than a specific gender or ethnicity; it symbols truth in oneself and overcoming adversity.

    An interesting and unique take on Nature as a whole, with some great imagery. It describes the life cycle of flowers, as well as that of butterflies. It appeals to toddlers and beginning readers, while it’s charming enough to also appeal to adults reading it to younger children.

  • For A Troubled World

    A collection of beautiful and stunning poetry to offer solace and assurance to a dark and troubled world. Amidst the daily grind, and the chaos and uncertainty in the world, it is important that we step back for a while and align ourselves with the deeper currents of our being. It is the perennial call for us to reflect, in our own inimitable ways, the eternal principles of Truth, Goodness, and Beauty. It is the quest for that which is already so abundant in us.

    We just have to uncover it, little by little, in our own time and measure. But it requires a certain shift in our perspective and consciousness to embrace the basic truths of life and nature. It is equally important that we bring forth into the world, what we have uncovered, in acts of charity, love, and kindness, and that we become more responsive to the needs of our fellow beings, and fiercely resist all forms of oppression, violence, discrimination, racism, and the deeply-rooted fanatic spirit. This is the light and the spirit that breathe in this collection, that will enrich the minds and hearts of the old and the young.


    About the author:

    Haimnauth Ramkirath grew up in a small rural village in Guyana, South America. The beauty and simplicity of country life shaped his abiding love for nature. From an early age, he dived deeply into the richness and beauty of the spiritual and philosophical teachings and traditions of the East. This stirred in his heart a lifelong quest for inner peace and harmony. These poems reflect his intense inner search and contemplation.

    Haimnauth was a teacher for ten years in Guyana before taking up residency in the USA in 1991. He is a professional accountant and has worked his way up to the Controllership level.

    Haimnauth comes from a background of strong family values and he and his wife, Radhika, have inculcated these values to their son, Akash and daughter, Tamala.

    Haimnauth believes firmly that one has to work out one’s Karma and salvation while actively participating in the world, and to abdicate one’s responsibilities and duties is a negation of life itself. He is a very vigorous campaigner for social justice and equality, and his utter condemnation and abhorrence of racism, discrimination, social apathy and indifference to the plight of the poor and the oppressed, and scourge of the fanatic spirit, are reflected in some of the poems.

  • Fragmented Blues

    Fragmented Blues comes to be more than 12 years after its conception. A collection of blues, war, travel, and love poems written to organize, describe, and even jive through rural realities and communities rich with history of southern literature. Influenced by iconic writers: Richard Wright, Etheridge Knight, Faulkner, Welty, Jerry Ward, Jr., and Margaret Walker, the book echoes traditional voices. Fragmented Blues was written in migration through the Deep South, Chicago, Southern Italy, onward to the Arabian Gulf in war time where the fantail of a U.S. vessel and a swaying darkened sea tide became the backdrop dredging lines displaying the faith and substance of life.

    Fragmented Blues, Marcus’ second volume of verse is a fitting follow up to his first book. It contains 61 skillfully crafted poems that give the reader a sense of a young Black male from Mississippi discovering his place within the context of a complex and evolving global community. With “Fragmented Blues,” the title poem, Marcus brings his blues to commune with the future but he is ever mindful of the past.

    -Charlie R. Braxton, Hip-Hop Journalist/Poet

    White’s goal is not just to draw pictures of pain, but to pull back the pain and show that hope or possibility still exists. Yet, White does not appear as an idealist, but more of a romantic- a man who loves, is compelled to love, even if his love is not returned. And that is the hope that is seen and felt in his poetry- a hope that someone will read his work and realize that possibility of love.

    -C. Liegh McInnis, Writer and Professor of English at Jackson State University
