Bloomsbury Poetry Reading October 2014

In October 2014, I was part of the Rogue Valley Poetry Association’s poetry reading at Bloomsbury Bookstore in Ashland Oregon. It was my first poetry reading.

As I viewed the video once again, I noticed that the last two poems I read – Riding Lesson and Twin Falls – are two poems that opened chapters, which I call Guideposts, in my recently published book, Design and Live the Life You Love: A Guide for Living In Your Power and Fulfilling Your Purpose.

You would be able to follow along with the Twin Falls poem if you have downloaded the preview of my book. It opens the first chapter. Riding Lesson opens the Second Guidepost, Develop Innocent Perception.

On my path of awakening, I am learning to be vulnerable. Sometimes I get to take risks and try new things, even if I am not “perfect”. Participating in this reading was a big step for me.

I enjoy hearing poets read their own work because it brings the written word to life. I thought you might enjoy hearing me read my own poetry.

  1. I listen like a child eager to learn. The cool drizzle hits my face as if to say it’s time to wake up and smell the damp moss. I approach the crossing and hang up. Remembering unsuccessful attempts I stare at the sign that says Guidepost 5. I see the path others have made for me. I know that I’m walking in the footsteps of giants.
