A quiet morning
curled up on the recliner
reading a good book

After a week of constant meetings and deadlines, it was a blessing to hold a physical, tangible book to escape to a time before modern day technology and all of the noise, chatter and distractions that come with it. Sometimes you just need to slow down in order to catch up 🙂
I had my first official live reading on Wednesday, February 4th at
Cafe Lift titled “10 Minutes of Poetry” where I joined a group of talented performers for the night.
Here, you can get a glimpse of my reading =)
Please note that you may need to be a follower of
Cafe Lift on Facebook to properly see some of the videos.
My introduction poem
Like No Other was under the theme “The Body & The Senses” and seemed to be a favorite among the crowd.
My second poem
Ominous was under the theme “Dark Poetry” and is always a fun, psychological poem to read.
My third poem
30 Days of Beard was a memory from work and written based on testimonials from my male colleagues. The theme, of course, is “A Different Perspective.”
My fourth poem
Forever Creating is a blank verse piece written in Creative Writing class. It falls under the theme “Inspiration & Creativity.”
The fifth and last poem of the night was
Flying, based on a childhood memory. This poem falls under the theme of “Telling a Story.”
