My poem ‘Exposed’ has been featured on http://www.magunga.com/exposed-daisy-awiti/
I am deliriously happy to announce my guest posting feature over at The Real G Inc. I met this cool guy who owns the blog, at a Storymoja Hay Festival meeting where I, by the way, am interning (whoop whoop!). So we got to talking and he expressed his wish to have more poetry on his blog.
I was more than happy to get in touch with him and later, this MAGIC happened!
I present to you:
Girl Child, Mild Child
Well, as I’d mentioned, last Friday (17th of May) I performed my first piece. It was amazing and scary, exciting and such fun, all at the same time. I was one half of a duet and we did pretty well for first timers. I barely remember being aware of myself during the whole thing but I know I enjoyed it…such is shock!
The venue was St. Andrews Church during the Eve of Poetry – an event that takes place on the third Friday of every month from 5.30 pm to 8.00 pm. I know you want to check it out. The next one’s on the 21st of June. Just to put it bluntly, this is an open invitation.
Since I couldn’t get a hold of the entire piece combined, I’ll just post my part. Trust me on this though, the two poems with the blending styles of writing and performance was something different. Check out Pablo’s blog here.
This month’s theme was ‘My Friend Called Music’. Here’s my part of the poem, The Master’s Playlist:
|My view from the front seat- Campaign vehicle|
|Right next to the door|
Before I leave, I make a tribute to love! It’s beautiful, sad, magical and tragic. Check out Thought of You by Ryan Woodward It’s a beautiful blend of music, dance, art and love! It really is worth your time.
