In addition, our e-poet was World Poetry Director Michael Kwaku Kesse Somuah. who wrote: “I have arrived in Ghana safely from my visit to Beijing, Shenzen, Suzhou , Shanghai and other cities in China during my 21 day stay. I should say, it was a good and worthy trip of thought about climate change.”  His moving poem was : In Honor of Bright Amponsah Yeboah.
