WE MAKE POETRY AND WE MAKE POETS
AdinkraLinks is a network of poets collaborating across the world, drawing on Adinkra symbols as their creative resource. We create and connect, and connect to create and mutually enrich each other.. We interact to write and share with each other and the rest of the world. Our interactions are through the poems we write in response to each other’s writing.
This website www.adinkralinks.net tells the story of what we share and how we share through the volumes of poetry anthologies, conversations, spoken word films, pictures and music to which published and unpublished poets are invited and are contributing.
The second volume, AYA ‘The Resilient'. in the first Anthology series is the result of an open call in 2019 to interested poets across the world to submit initial original work, drawing on the theme and meaning of the Adinkra symbol Aya (Resilience). The write-respond-write interaction between all the poets and the fractal experience it created for us is what is featured here in this second volume of the AdinkraLinks Anthology Series.
The book expands on the meaning of 'Aya' the Adinkra symbol for resilience and endurance depicted by the fern, a hardy plant that thrives in difficult terrain and climate. The symbol thus, reflects the experience of success in spite of protracted difficulties and adversity. It narrates how flourishing looks and feels like despite such difficulties and challenges. The poets bring various personal perspectives to the concept of resilience.
