Let us honour our loquacious tendencies,
for they exercise the muscles of mouth & mind.
Let us also fold into provocative percipience,
for it is through vigorous listening that the soul expands dynamic.
Do more than wear her shoes!
Intoxicate your senses with the spectrum of her voice’s gravity.
This is how we bring ourselves together.
The weight of our matter-ing is love.
Poem A Day on CBC Windsor Morning!
This morning I was on CBC Windsor Morning talking to Tony Doucette about writing a poem a day! And oh, the irony, that on the day this interview airs, I’m sooo late to posting my daily poem! ARG! The poem was written, in fact, by 9am, but I just haven’t had time to post it until now!
In any case, thank you to Tony and Robin and the CBC Windsor Morning family for bringing poetry to the morning airwaves!
Here’s a link to the segment! LINK HERE!
Windsor Public Library Thimbles Interview
I had an in-depth discussion about Thimbles with Windsor Public Library’s Book Talk host Adam P via zoom to celebrate National Poetry Month. Thank you, Adam!
I read several poems and Adam and I discuss process, poetry and the power of asking those we love to share their stories!
