Bless Your Sweet Bones – Melaina Williams


Bless Your Sweet Bones is a lovely collection of poems dedicated to the power of ancestry. Los Angeles poet, Melaina Williams explores the idea of folklore being programmed in the human DNA and experiments with poems, monologues and prose from the voice of her late grandmother, familial figures, along with hers and other voices of the 21st century. Set to themes of love, art, God and family, Bless Your Sweet Bones is a riveting conversation between the modern and traditional, sacred and secular, God and human; a conversation that so refreshingly resolves at a call for harmony between the human body, mind and spirit.”




Melaina Williams is a poet, playwright, singer/songwriter from Inglewood California. She finds great joy in connecting with people of all backgrounds through creative arts, especially creative writing. Melaina studied Creative Writing and Theatre at USC. Her book of poetry, “Bless Your Sweet Bones” was published by the historical World Stage Press in Leimert Park. She also penned, “The Humble Commode” a chapbook. She currently lives in Los Angeles and spends her days writing and binge-watching Cocomelon with her daughter.
