Celestine Nudanu is fearless when she writes cherita and this is what gives her poems their power. She is unafraid to share her personal truths about love, betrayal, abuse, loss and ultimately of faith in her life. When she writes about love, she transports the reader into a realm where anything is possible, and the sky's the limit when things are going smoothly. Then she takes us to her dark side where the harsh realities of failed love start to bite, and we are now transported into her intimate world of where there are three people in a relationship, and that number is always a crowd.

The cherita genre could almost have been created just for Celestine, for her to gift to us her stories. With her natural flair for storytelling, I hope this poet will continue to enthrall us with her powerhouse of cherita to come.

You do not have to agree with the words I have written in this foreword. Buy the book and you can be your own judge. I can assure you that you won't be disappointed.
