We all see, feel, experience and embrace love in different ways and each ways come with symbolic meanings. Olowo Qudus in his poetry micro-chapbook ‘making love by the waterside’ portrayed love in a rare form, something many poets might not have done. He attached the reality of love to water. He made us believe how love can be found in water and how water is a realm where love exists. How imaginary can his metaphors be? How complicated his love ideology is? This body work contains deep imagery, direct diction but brisk messages.
