Style? Check. Creativity? Check. How about inspiration? Check. Is there anything this book is lacking? Yea. You, the listener. Feast your eyes on this book of elegant and contemporary poems that are guaranteed to leave you wanting for more. In Ciara Ijames’ Graciously Speaking, she delivers time and time again with lines and verses full of home-hitting content.
If you are a fan of poetry, you can agree that Graciously Speaking is in the ball park with works by the great Nikki Giovanni and Rita Dove. The dedications in this work compare to those of Antwone Fisher in his Who Will Cry For The Little Boy? Graciously Speaking also offers determination and presentation in the same manner of one of the greatest to ever grace a poem: Maya Angelou. And last but not least, Graciously Speaking unveils the mind of a genius and the unlimited potential of Ciara Ijames as did Lorraine Hansberry’s Young, Black, and Gifted.
