Can We Talk About (How Much We Love) Cleo Wade?

Poet Cleo Wade on her Courageous Love Tour for her debut book, Heart Talk

You’ll have to excuse us for gushing, but Cleo Wade and her book Heart Talk have totally enchanted us.

We love celebrating women. It’s one of the things we have most in common with Cleo Wade, the instagram sensation taking our hearts and minds by storm. Wade’s book, Heart Talk, reads more like a love letter for the mind and hug for the heart than a collection of poems. The words wrap you in comfort, remind you to stay present, and pull you back into a world brimming with gratitude for everything you have.

One of the things we’re most grateful for is Wade, and the way she opens her heart and mind to share with us her work. Especially on Instagram. After closing her Courageous Love Tour, and after encouraging people to get to the polls for the midterm elections, Wade has settled into the holiday season with words of encouragement for everyone.

Her debut book, Heart Talk, brings joy to everyone who reads it. Wade curates thoughtful depictions of her book in the wild. A shining amalgam of poetry, affirmations, art, and verse, Heart Talk topped all our holiday lists– to give and to get.

The biggest treat might be to see Wade’s work loose in the wild. She did a series of poems that lit up the LA palm trees (and our creative energy), and her holiday season pop-up shops gave her readers a rare opportunity to collect original prints from Wade herself.
