Thank you for stopping by.
April is upon us. A month of rain showers, sunlight and the possibility of new growth. I’m reminded of the first few lines of T.S Eliot’s “The Waste Land”:
April is the cruellest month, breeding
Lilacs out of the dead land, mixing
Memory and desire, stirring
Dull roots with spring rain.
April is National Poetry Month, and I will be celebrating with selected readings from my favourite poets. Be sure to visit often to hear new poems and get your dose of inspiration. I’ll also be participating in #AprilLove on Instagram, pairing my images with quotes from poems.
Press play below to hear me read a tiny poetic gem from the 15th Century Indian poet, Kabir.
On April 26th, join me for Tasting Poetry: A Mouthwatering Poetry Workshop. Participants will celebrate their love of food with fun, sensory writing activities and creative prompts. They will be encouraged to engage all their senses in writing about their favourite memories and experiences of culinary delights.
May April be a month of abundance for you.
