Oneil A. Williams is the new face of creativity in an increasingly global and multicultural world.  Bilingual, widely traveled, and possessed of a depth of perspective that speaks to the richness of his experience, Oneil brings fresh eyes onto our world through his gift of verse.  The Kaleidoscope of Color collects hope, love, beauty, wisdom, faith, and transcendence into a volume of poetry that promises to inspire and give pause. 

Taking his guidance from a cadre of goddesses drawn from world mythologies, Oneil invites the reader to reflect on purpose, nature, growth, and death.  From the blossoming of new life, beginning with contemplations of faith, The Kaleidoscope of Color joins us in our quiet moments of repose to celebrate life.  Passion and sensuality captivate our senses, while reverence and doubt comprise our spirituality.  Remembrance, wonder, and longing capture our intimate relations with others. 

In The Kaleidoscope of Color, Oneil A. Williams invites readers to embrace their gifts and joys through the glory of language, communication, and the senses.  The ancient spirits of goddesses – from Africa, Asia, Europe, America, and the Arctic – serve as muses to help organize his thoughts and feelings into expressions of promise.  This poetic tour invites you to come along.  Bring your self, and bring your dreams.

Oshun

 

At the heart of passion

Lies orgasmic pleasure.

I am the fulfillment of your

Principles of lust.

I am joy and sensuality

Beyond your wildest dreams.

I am your desire—

Dark, lovely and mythical.

 

I am beauty and light.

Let me guide you to the

Innermost regions of my soul

And reveal to you treasures untold.

Come my strong African deity.

I am here my delectable amante latino.

 

I am love.

 

 

 

Demise

 

I

 

Sweet.

His tender lips, like wine

The cause of my demise.

How sweet they were,

Advancing the day of reckoning.

I write my name in the book of love.

Now I wait for Sharia.

 

II

 

Like missiles the rocks sailed through the air

Shattering my head.

I made a run for freedom

But she was powerless to save me.

There was only my blood.

Blood draining.

My blood amongst the stones.

 

Born in Kingston, Jamaica on August 21, 1978, Oneil A. Williams has covered much distance during his young life. Educated in three countries – Jamaica, Great Britain, and the United States – Oneil has developed into a cosmopolitan communicator and thinker. Enchanted by the spoken and written word since childhood, Oneil founded a magazine, Broadcast Classic, while in high school, wrote for Jamaica’s national newspaper, The Gleaner, and won prizes for his oratorical excellence. Oneil’s short story, Obsession, was published in the Jamaica Observer, and Oneil gave full flight to his creativity in college as a newspaper columnist and actor in several productions. A graduate of the University of Central Florida, Oneil also studied at Eastern Connecticut State University, Yale University and in Edinburgh, Scotland at Queen Margaret University College. Currently pursuing a Master of Arts degree in Mass Communication, Oneil has made public communication and creative expression his specialties. An eternal optimist, Oneil’s faith and personal energies are dedicated to bringing his words to others. Oneil A. Williams is a dreamer who repeatedly achieves his dreams. He has written a novel and countless shorter works, and this is his first published volume of poetry.
