Gardens and Caves by Emmanuel Uweru Okoh is a 104-page poetry collection bearing a rare mix of the opposites of life; joy and pain, success and occasional flaws, flights and awkward stumbles and all else that make humans who they are. The collection includes five sections, namely ?Circle of Inspiration?, ?Political Equation?, ?Whispers of Nature?, ?Living and Hereafter? and ?Haiku?. Each section in this poetry collection presents a stepping stone in the circle of life, as it strings together nature appreciation, inspiration, political power play and family life. The collection concludes with the famed Haiku poetry of the Japanese. ?Poetry is essentially and at its core, a distillation of emotions and experiences; that which Wordsworth referred to as the ?spontaneous overflow of powerful emotions recollected in tranquility?. This is clearly true and evident in the poems of Emmanuel Uweru Okoh collected under the title, Gardens and Caves??Toni Kan, Author and Novelist Spoken Word Artist and Editor, Efe Paul Azino says ?Poetry still walks and talks among the living ? Gardens and Caves proves this much. Emmanuel writes poems his readers can own; good poetry. Here is a voice that will linger for a long, long time?.
