Splintering Silence

Monday 19 May 2014, author(s)-editor(s) Philo Ikonya

In Splintering Silence, Philo Ikonya takes us to the source of her strength and power. Her poems rise from a gamut of experiences and thoughts, her philosophy and vision. In this amazing collection, soulful, reflective and introspective the poet searches with us even into her own name. The one she was given by her ancestors and the ones she is called by. She says darkness is visible in light but both are us and therefore we must reach for the ’I’ and surprise ourselves hailing ourself: Hello Darkness My Old Friend! This book is a celebration of the resilience of spirit and a constant loving compassion for the love of humanity. Philo Ikonya connects with activism and change in practical ways and liberating thoughts.
