About this Item
McNally Robinson P.O.D.
A brave, mindful woman. Who better to portray the anguish of being a refugee than one who has tasted it. Yet she also paints the love of woman, mother and lover in gorgeous colours.
Author of: Amity, Paradise of the Downcasts and Waiting
She is vividly present among the refugees suffering, dying and escaping. She is with her ancestors, her mother, son, vulnerable girls and women, declaring her love and protecting; she is with the homeless and the revolutionaries. Her purpose is to “wake up your conscience”. She advocates a life of peace, love and responsibility, in harmony with the earth.
Iraqi refugee, Lozan Yamolky, confronts us in her poetry with passionate, powerful imagery of war-torn countries. She challenges us to listen and understand, issues urgent calls to action, then leaves us believing in our power to change.
Author of award-winning ‘Sun Dogs and Yellowcake’
There is a genuine silence between and behind Lozan’s words. She attempts to evoke what can’t be said or expressed easily. There is truth, light and strength in her poems because they grew from her memories of actual places, experiences and events. Like a skillful weaver she knits her dreams and visions to create a compelling and captivating collection of poignant and profound poetry.
