When there seems
no progressive road
light finds you
the way out
the door awaits
I guess I could reverse this poem and say ‘you find light’. The question burning in my mind is…….in troubled times, at the end of a long dark tunnel, does light find us, or are we drawn to light?
This little poem started out as a Twitter micropoem, it was never intended to be anything more. I decided to post it on Hello Poetry and I noticed compared to a few other poems I’d posted at the same time it was very quickly gaining unexpected attention. On the 26th November it was chosen as the Daily Poem. I was amazed at how other writers responded. So I decided to record it, but a little different than a straight reading. I’ve been thinking of creating a more surreal artistic style in spoken word accompanied with music for some time. It was a refreshing change and see to how I could alter what I’ve previously done.
A lot of poets on SoundCloud like to create that kind of fantasy style and some find their readings transformed with a collaboration with a musician. It’s great fun and very much another kind of blog – sound blogging.
AudioBoom is anther website to post your recordings and also ReverbNation. Both SoundCloud and AudioBoom are compatible with WordPress and embed into posts and pages with no problems. ReverbNation is a great site but won’t embed into WordPress.
I’m a little behind with some of your blog posts at the moment. I’ve been battling a vicious head cold for about three weeks that just doesn’t want to give up and move on – life is a bit chaotic! 😦 In the next few days I’ll be catching up on those blog posts, then I’ll be off for a blog break. I’ll be returning in January/February.
I wish you all a peaceful seasonal celebration ⛄️🎄❄️ and may you find all the light you need! 🙂
