A poem I wrote for the theme of night found at John Siddique’s Guardian workshop. After I recorded the poem and exported the video I went back and changed some words, but here you have the basic foundation of the piece. The scenes are a combination of still shots and video. The video I shot myself. Except for the mosaic at the beginning, the still images are from stock.xchnge.
Good Times in Atlanta. Thanks to Collin Kelley, I had another opportunity to meet with some fabulous poets, and I enjoyed a great meal to boot. My entrée was Crawfish Diablo Pasta, very spicy and delicious. I threw caution to the wind and had a margarita with José Cuervo reposado tequila. Yum!
Since I don’t get out of the ‘burbs too often, I was soaking up all the conversation and witty repartee. An all around fun evening.
Some clips from the beach as a thank you to all my friends on the web. Happy Blog Reader Appreciation Day!
Blog Reader Appreciation Day is hosted at The OTHER Mother, by Robin Reagler.
While running along my usual route, I took video images of some of the sites that wound up in my poem.

I just got home from leading a poetry workshop at the high school where I used to teach, opened my email, and saw that qarrtsiluni has posted a video I made for their latest issue, Journaling the Apocalypse. The video is called time capsule chronicles. If you have a spare minute and a half, please watch and listen!
