A Special Message to the World.

“As we start 2014, it is time that people understand that there is only one race on the Earth – the Human Race. Therefore, the artificial barriers and divisions that exist must be eliminated, for the World to live as One.

We are all going around together, and we must share a collective responsibility not only to protect the planet, but to make human existence one free of hunger, poverty, war and many of the other global issues.

Human consciousness needs to rise to this level of awareness for Human existence to attain a higher level. The fact that millions of children die from hunger and poverty every year does not paint a positive picture and negates human development, which seems to be measured solely by technological development. ” By AJA

My Days Outside Were Never Wasted
By Mutiu Olawuyi

I do not believe they were wasted
my days outside Ikirun-Agunbe;
the cola-nut demography where – son
of the soil – I call proudly myself
even though my mother’s womb landed
me not really there, but Ilesha.

I do not believe they were wasted the days I spent in Mesu-Jamba land;

World Poetry welcomes Sultan Khilji, a talented poet and artist from Lahore, Pakistan to our www.worldpoetry.ca site!!

By worldpoetry on November 7, 2012 - 11:00am

Ariadne’s notes: We are so pleased to welcome Sultan Khilji, a talented poet and artist from Lahore, Pakistan to our World Poetry Site!
He will be interviewed live with hosts Ariadne Sawyer and Israel Mota and technician Medhi will welcome Sultan.on the World Poetry Cafe Radio Show on November 6 at www. coopradio.org at 9 pm PST. On November 7th the link will go up so you can download the show. The show is not available yet.

Sultan Khilji is an author and visual artist based in Pakistan. Just the spell of his name has a sense that’s royal, which entails history, shyness, maturity, and yet, is slumber-less. He demands immaculate perfection from himself. Sits and soaks himself with the world around him, and then takes his own time to spell it out in words, which craft poems.

He never claimed to be a poet, so when he pens he does it like he’s doing for the first time, as well as the last. Little afraid, a bit keen, overwhelmed and mesmerized with experience of his observation. He likes to listen to music, – any music. He likes to cook – any dish. He likes to paint – any form. Yet in all three there’s one thing in common – he’s creating poetry.

They’ve played The Heritage Grill in New Westminster numerous times, as well as the Railway Club and a one day tour of Gambier Island for a Cancer benefit. They also have a regular gig at Astral Connections in North Delta, as well as Renaissance Books in New Westminster. Mike and Bob both have solo albums as well which you can find on i-tunes, and have recently recorded the first WESTFALL MOUNTAIN album, also released on i-tunes.
