Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this spell-binding collection, Indana Simonde combines poetry and prose in an enlightening, tinted mixture dripping with the antiquity of another time and place. Lush images and rich metaphors bring Simonde's words to life, creating a vibrant tapestry brimming with energy. But he ultimately chronicles life and the nature of what it means to have a soul with grace and power.

Jumping from racial boundaries to social structure and to history, Simonde mixes love, anger, hatred, tragedy, and politics to bind you in an enchanting spell with the past, present, and future. An avid fan of a more fluid and free form of communication from the arts, Simonde's stunning poetry and prose elevates our most basic emotions to a new level of understanding.

The Broken Soul of Angelese the Orchid Sphinx speaks to your heart, enfolding you in a warm embrace of life's mysterious elegance.
