Sunrise Forthcoming (video poem)

This poem, “Sunrise Forthcoming,” was first shared one year ago this weekend. To celebrate the one-year anniversary of the first poem in my Being a Woman – Forthcoming Poetry Collection, I created a video with my poetry reading and my photographs. Enjoy! Thank you for visiting, viewing, and listening. Be well. πŸ’— Michele

A special thank you to Gobblers Masticadores and editor, J RE Crivello for publishing my poem, “Feeling the Squeeze.”

    1. From not bad to quite good is actually quite nice. 😁 Thank you for appreciating my work. πŸ™πŸ» I reckon she will keep wandering and wondering. A trusty sidekick would also be quite nice for the wc walking stranger. 🐴 I am glad I forgot to add a song – your selection is perfect. I am familiar. Very good. πŸŽΆπŸ‘πŸ»

  1. Oh my Michele, what a beautiful recitation on your video. πŸ€— You deliver your poetry so tranquilly, that it feels like the mindfulness stress reliever option on my Fitbit tracker app! βŒšπŸšΆπŸ½β€β™€οΈπŸ˜‰ Your photos complement your oratorical delivery marvelously my dear.

    1. A “mindfulness stress reliever” – love that! My Fitbit died months ago. Maybe I worked it too hard – should have spent more time with that option. πŸ˜† Thank you, Kym, for always sharing an uplifting and creative perspective. 😊 Album cover? Fantastic! You have given me two avenues to explore. haha You make me want to skip down the road! πŸ˜„ I will do my absolute best. You too! β„οΈπŸŒ¨οΈ 🌳Stay cozy and warm.

    1. Thank you, Jaya. Your comments are magical! What I love most about the opening stanza is that it references other poems from previous collections. It did feel a bit of magic writing it. ✨ Not a need-to-know detail for reading, but it was pleasing to write.

    1. I do enjoy reading, aloud and silently. πŸ˜„ To have my voice described in the way that you do, is a lovely compliment. I did enjoy revisiting this poem and scrolling through my photos. Thank you, Pragalbha – you are a very kind and generous person, with your time and support. πŸ’

    1. Thank you, Phil. It is fun to revisit old work from time to time and see it in a new light. 🌞 I do appreciate Masticadores and their ongoing efforts. Album cover, check! Guess I need to write some songs and find a band. 🎢

      1. Almost Feb! Oh my gosh! Thanks for reminding me… I need to set up my 2022 files and clear out the old, which means taxes are just around the corner. Ugh! πŸ˜† Sorry to confuse with my video intro – my photos in video, her illustrations are in the books. Thank you for appreciating! 😊

      1. It’s so great to see you, too. You’re welcome! You do the same for me! This year started with challenges and then a wonderful visit to Washington state to love on my youngest son, daughter-in-law, and little granddaughter. I’m slowly finding my way of life again. πŸ’•πŸ₯°β€οΈ
