The Vèvè art design on the cover of the book is my own artistic expression that merges art and poetry. It is "Erzili," the Lwa of love; she stands as the reminder that the heart's ancestral memory guides us and transforms the obstacles to personal peace. It is a statement of my freedom, an act of faith rooted in tradition. It is a celebration of our common ground to create harmony.
In this poetry book, Finding Ezili, the Lwa of love, I have added the love poems of my father William Francois Mitchell to my mother Anne-Marie Solages, nascent to their love for each other. I am honoring the lessons and love they share with me.
The poems in this book are in English, French, Haitian Kreyòl, and Spanish. These poems are expressed in languages that I have learned.
