Author Kevin Hollingsworth
I have been a dreamer since I was born in N.Y.C. My dreams started September 20th, 1968. I moved to Los Angeles, California when I was very young. I received my education in Los Angeles, and joined the workforce a couple of years after graduating from college…
I did not start writing poetry until later in life. Friends and family really enjoyed the beautiful words I shared with them. So, I continued to write, and published my first prose poetry book, “Wonders,” in 2009. I published my second book of prose, “Romance with A Touch of Love” in 2011.
The dreams kept coming; and I continued to be inspired to write beautiful words. I am honored to share these beautiful words with the world in “Stellar.”
After completing his latest poetry book, Stellar, Hollingsworth had no plans of writing another collection of poetry. Hollingsworth, however, continued to be inspired to write beautiful words. His heart touched daily, Hollingsworth, over the course of one year, wrote 76 poems; that he humbly presents to the world in "Blu Diamonds".
EXCERPTS FROM THE BOOKS
Victory was in sight , but I could not see.

Her body was so smooth, and tasty like cherry wine.
She was sexy in the beginning.
She was sexy at night.
Victory was in sight.
Her body was so smooth, and more sexy than the queen of spades.
Her green dress looked better old than new.
I knew she was the lady of the hour.
An hour went by, and I could still see this lady so luscious.
She was luscious to the young and old.
I was too old for her, and I wanted to be young again.
Again she walked by in the green dress.
This green dress made her the lady of the hour.
I had an hour to enjoy her scent.
Her scent smelled a thousand times better than a thousand fragrances discovered by my God.
She was delivered from God I wanted her to know; and I wish my God would deliver me to this kind lady wearing the green dress.
“Stellar” is an interesting as well as compelling book of prose poetry that encompasses the wonderment of love. Further, stories of romance, love, and tragedy are told creatively through the eyes of 107 poems.
In “Stellar” one will have a chance to go on an odyssey of figurative language, and will also get a refreshing sense of the human condition; that we all need, and yearn for love.
In “Stellar” one will also have a unique opportunity to view emotionalism seemingly painted by the masters. However, these poetic words of distinction cannot fit on a canvas; but are to be read on paper, and enjoyed by you and your imagination….

I was so lucky, but I did not realize it until she was swept away by
the winds of passion and grace.

the most beautiful.
Music wandered through the sky.
The mist touched her skin, and it felt so good.
Red, white, and blue combed her hair so fine.
She was magnificent, and she was free.
Her name was America, and I was proud to walk by her side.
She was so beautiful, and America was the finest woman I had
Her courage and her bravery were my democracy.

Her smiles made me happy when happiness was not around.
When joy was taken from me, she brought joy back into my life.
America, America I am so in love with you.
