When the Muse Speaks is my 4th poetry collection and was released 8.11.20. I'm always looking for more inspiration so there will be more poetry to be had. lol


Kiana Donae is a poet and author. The melodic rhythm of her words adapt and evolve with each stanza to express the versatility of her experiences. She finds her muse in the quiet spaces of the world. A place in which she can share her love and her words freely.

“Love is my action, poetry is my passion. I am love & ink.” – Kiana Donae

Currently the author of four poetry collections, each one reflects the many facets
of human life. Poetry that will captivate the mind and soul.

A creative by nature when I'm not writing I'm often creating digital designs
and graphics as well as beautiful ways to preserve photos, memories and moments.
