May has arrived.
I was born in May- a month when the cherry blossoms bloom, when the wind is warmer and you can taste summer around the corner. May is a time for me to reflect upon where I am and where I’m heading. To honour May, I’m offering a spring-themed poetry workshop: Spring Verses: An Afternoon of Poetry on May 2nd. Join me.
It’s also Asian Heritage month- a time to honour the journey of our ancestors, question how we identify and ‘label’ ourselves, and connect with our culture & heritage. I’ll be speaking about my discovery of the ghazal form at Storytellers: The Roots of Form on May 21st.
During National Poetry Month (April), I recorded some of my favourite poems. Click here to listen to them.
May 3rd is the first full moon of May, so be sure to take some time out of your evening to take stock of where you are and what has come to fruition in April.
Wishing you a reflective May, filled with flowers!
