Exquisite Heats - new book by Cherryl Floyd-Miller


Congratulations to sistah quilter and blogger Cherryl Floyd-Miller! Her new poetry book Exquisite Heats is now out!. In her third poetry collection, Cherryl "... explores the infinite manifestations of heat in the human experience. She moves comfortably from issues of public history and personal identity to the musings of revered icons. R&B legend Rick James speaks of impropriety and addiction, Marvin Gaye reveals his aesthetic struggles as a popular artist, Billie Holiday gives voice lessons, Alice Walker’s Celie Johnson boils grits, and Joe Frazier recounts the night he beat Muhammad Ali." Enjoy!

Hi Kyra - I am off to purchase your book at Amazon, and this one too! I am a poet AND lover of the textile arts. Also, my novel set in Depression era Gee's Bend comes out in 2010 -- the history of quilting as self-expression fascinates me. Happy to have found your blog!

Hi there! {waves}

I just wanted to stop by and bring "Merry Christmas" greetings!

Isaiah 9:6 (NKJV)
For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given;
And the government will be upon His shoulder.
And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace."

Peace, blessings and DUNAMIS!
