Sea Change


Sea Change is a collection of poems that forays into a reading of the fluid space between experience and memory, clarity and tumult, reality and myth. The poems also chronicle the writer’s relationship to questions of love and distance, at times answerable only by a leap of faith. Adebe D.A.’s debut collection delves into notions of freedom often submerged in chaos, and the transformative potential of not looking back.

“My favourite voice of [Adebe’s] is [her] unadulterated sincerity… not to be confused with anyone else.  The voice of blessing, marketed to the timeless.”
– Pier Giorgio Di Cicco

“Her personal journey to find the answers to those deep questions many of us hold in our dark spaces, Sea Change is full of fluidity and grace even when dealing with ugly material. Each piece has something very definite to say and as a reader it is difficult to put the book down without feeling as if something has just happened within your own soul.”
– Sarrah October Young, LipstikIndie.com

  1. H Adebe,
    In spite of the fact that I am not very fond of English poetry, I loved your poem above. I like the lighthearted, short and quick beat. I also love the sea ;)… By the way I love Arabic poetry and write it too… Is your name Arabic (Lebanese)?
    Regards,
    Suzan
