Allowing The Light To Guide My Way
March 25, 2016 § 2 Comments
I’ve always seen poetry as being the place from which all other art forms emerge. It is both a hub and the goal. So I’ve always been open to letting the muses lead my writing where they want me to go. This sometimes leads me to dance and to film. Sometimes I look at myself and wonder how a man like me, coming from where I came from, can be so blessed with opportunity to create and express. But I never question too deeply, I just allow the light to guide my way.
Here is a rarely seen video for my poem Every Atom, which was originally commissioned for the Northern School of Contemporary Dance.
