[Poetry Friday] “Mythology” by Nikita Gill

Birthday Poem #1: Mythology by Nikita Gill


Fats here.

Two days ago, I celebrated my birthday. For the next four Poetry Fridays of my birthday month, I will be featuring selected poems from Nikita Gill’s Wild Embers: Poems of Rebellion, Fire, and Beauty. I first shared Gill’s poetry on April 26th. I fell in love with her writing. Needless to say, Nikita Gill has become one of my favorite poets.


You are a myth born to the wrong age. You are the kind of book that has magical stories trapped in every single page. — Nikita Gill

Poetry Friday round-up is hosted this week by Michelle!

    I will have to look further for this new poet, Fats. The poem fits your theme for the year, certainly, and it’s quite a group of women gathered. More are writing of women for young girls to know about and for inspiration, but these goddesses don’t seem to have been given a “new” look yet. Instead, the same descriptions are there. Thank you, and Happy, Happy Birthday!
