One of my passions is reading/performing poetry, spoken word, the words I write. While delving into the culinary world took me away from the microphone, I’ve finally found my way back.
It’s been a slow re-entry, with an introduction into the modern world of zine life back in 2015, and after having a few pieces published in a Phoenix zine, I decided to step back into Poetry Open Mics.
Recently I took part in National Poetry Month (April). For some poets, the idea behind NPM is to write a new poem a day and publish it on one of the many platforms available. I decided to take a different path. I made a video poem a day from the extensive collection I’ve written over the years and posted these videos on my YouTube channel. That meant creating 30 individual video poem, one for each day of the month.
This is a nature video poem I recorded and put together while on a walk along a creek in Kansas.
