Regarscent Past - A Collection of Poems
The poems are masterfully crafted; they are inspiring, entertaining, educating and enthralling. They are dynamic and educes emotions.

Regarscent Past is more than a collection of poems, it’s a cornucopia of the wisdom – hindsight, insight and foresight of the writer who is a man of honour. The poems celebrates our rich cultural heritage and condemns vices in the world. They connect the reader with the divinity, humanity, sagacity and erudity of the poet.

The eighty seven poems in the book are great and beautifully knitted that it’s hard for me to say which is my best. I learned new words from the book and the poems took my mind on a journey to different places and events in the world.

The book ‘Regarscent Past’, is truly a potpourri of time-warped memories subsumed in a retrospective blink by a man who has travelled far and wide. It’s truly the reminiscence of the good, the bad and the ugly times here on earth from the poet’s eye view. This book is a timeless treasure and a gift to humankind from the creative mind of poet Oseloka H. Obaze who is a great statesman. I enjoyed this masterpiece and I highly recommend it for you.You can get your copy via
