Blind Moon

Blind Moon, as the title suggests, is a collection of evocative, passionate and defiant poetry that reflects upon the plight of the individual and the state of Hove’s birthplace and nation, Zimbabwe.

Hove feels deeply for those who suffer at the expense of tyrannical power and die in ‘nameless graves’, as he yearns for a more peaceful, gentle and loving world where we can share ‘a destiny of stars’.

Poetry, as the poet tells us, ‘is an art to persuade the heart and the soul and human body to be together and to gently cry out to the world.’

The poet writes on a ‘slate of tears’ with ‘endless dreams’ for a suffering humanity, that has so much promise in a world with so much to offer, but where we turn our back on peace.
