As wine is to drink, so is poetry to words.

Think back to a time when you were gathered together with a group of people with whom you had little in common. Perhaps your partner, friend or a relative invited you along. Either way you were bored out of your senses and spent your time thinking of how you might escape the situation. Then all of sudden someone breaks the monotony by bringing up something most fascinating. Your ears stretch out to grasp every word & nuance, as you sit there spell bound and enthralled. If you can remember an event like that then you now know what poetry ought to feel like when you hear it. As wine is to drink, so is poetry to words. For those of you who have yet to be raptured in heart & soul, worry not, for somewhere out there, under the great blue, there is a poem that is meant for you. Click on the image above to view my recitation of some of the greatest poems ever written.

Love & light,

JY

    • Thank you kindly for your encouraging word. Poetry has been more of a solitary engagement for me in life, so it is wonderful to know that others can share in my experience and draw some quality of joy from it or at least come to know their condition from an alternative perspective.
