In the sand of love, the heart of the poet was buried.

The 2016 Universal Inspirational Poet honouree, Nene Tetteh Adusu is set to release his poetry collection – Heart in the Sand.

Heart in the Sand presents various shades of love and carries the reader on a journey line by line. Tetteh bares his heart on this collection with each poem inked with truth that the reader can relate. Heart in the Sand is a collection of lyrical poems. In the foreword to the book, Dr. Santosh Bakaya, poet and writer of Ballad of Bapu writes:

This powerful collection of poems, reminded me, at times of William Blake’s poem NEVER SEEK TO TELL THY LOVE. Love at times can be, like the gentle, soothing wind, invisible and silent.

“For the gentle wind does move

Silently invisibly”.

At other times, it brought to mind Andrew Marvell, pleading with his coy mistress,

‘Had we but world enough, and time

This coyness, Lady were no crime,’

This is second poetry book by Nene Tetteh Adusu after co-authoring Palm Leaves. Nene Tetteh Adusu, christened Solomon, is a playwright, poet and dramatist who believe in the transformational power of words. His works duels in existentialism and realism. His writing and performances are inspired by his culture.

The launch will feature performances by Nene, conversations with the audience and a book signing session.
