The Voodoo belief started within the African culture and was used to help keep faith as many were taken as slaves by the Europeans.

The poet uses rhyming couplets, but they do not all rhyme in the traditional way that readers may be used to. When a reader first skims the poem, they may think it rhymes perfectly, but in fact the author is using rhymes such as “times” and “names”, or “alight” and “root”.

What is interesting about this title is that rebus is a riddle formed by pictures or symbols that are representatives for words and meanings.

Today I visited such a place for the annual Antiques Vintage and Garden Show, which took place between February 19th through the 21st.
