precious pearls that exist under a scarred heart

What's your favorite book and why?

my favorite book has to be Lovers and Friends by Eric J Dickey. I like the book because I could relate to the charactors and their situations. The book could have been non fiction. That's how it draws you in to the story.

About Me

I'm a London, England based poet, who threw myself into writing back in 2006 after a 6 year writing hiatus ended.

 

Your first impression of meeting me may be that I’m a little quiet and reserved. Though you might very well be surprised when you get to know me, then read some of the things I’ve written and realise I’m not so quiet after all!

 

INSPIRED my first book of poetry, was first published in Feb 2008 by Mad Jock Publishers. You can order it direct from me www.amazon.co.uk/shops/angelaedgar

Currently, I'm working on my next three collections so please visit www.CinnamonAndSin.com  and www.AngeeEdgar.co.uk for excerpts from book 2 & 4.)

 

I am available for poetry readings at spoken word, motivational and empowerment events in London.

My favourite poem from INSPIRED which is dedicated to my mother.

 

"Mama's Kitchen"

 

Saturday I woke to the smells

Of spinach greens, with meat bits, onions and peppers

They roused me from my troubled dreams

Sniff...sniff...mmmm :)

Mama's cooking….

With that special ingredient

That makes everything ok

My tummy rumbled and yearned

For some bammie and fried plantains

My tummy called to me and yelled

"Wake Up! Mama's cooking!

Go get yours before it's gone...

And Big Sis has taken it all!"

 

I wait in bed, eyes closed,

Recognising the familiar scents

Until the combination

Is right for me to rise to the table

I hear the kettle boiling

The clink of pots, pans and cutlery

Of Mama moving about downstairs

These are the familiar Saturday morning rituals

That marked my childhood

Until now as a grown woman.

 

Ooh, she's done it now!

That's the smell that will get me up

To claim my share

...Hot dumplings, fresh baked out the oven...Oh Yeah!

I toss and turn onto my stomach

As scents assail my nostrils

Slowly, I slide out from under the covers

A toe...an ankle...a calf...a thigh...my bum...

As I eventually fling off the bedspread

 

"An-gel-a... Breakfast!"

"Coming Mum!"

 

I've gone to fill my face

As well as my soul

With Mama's cooking creations

And that extra special secret ingredient of hers

The one that with a taste

Can make it all better

Heal hurts like a kiss, a word...

Like a mother's unconditional love

Like a mother’s understanding hug.

My Best Friend's Girl by Dorothy Koomson

What's your favorite book and why?

I loved 'My Best Friend's Girl' by Dorothy Koomson, because it touched me so deeply.

I laughed, cried, raged and sympathised. Never had I connected with a book in such a way before. I recommend it because I've never read a book like this before and probably because I'd never chosen to read a book like this before.

Dance into your Destiny is one of my favorite books because it gives insight into true purpose for those that are called with scriptural reference and biblical history to all reasonings.
