It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and enjoy a poetry reading by me.
If you have been following me for a while you most likely know that I am always trying new things such as photography, editing, poetry and now the newest…making videos/reading aloud. With these new things I still always have animal advocacy in mind. I’m sure I have a lot to learn yet but through some online research about poetry I found that it is important to read it aloud. The following was taken from dummies.com.
The music of poetry — that is, its sounds and rhythms — isn’t just for the eye and the mind, it’s meant to be given voice.
I never really thought about it but I get it because that is exactly what I have to do. To tell how the “flow” of a poem is going I have to read it out loud to myself as I am writing it.
Now reading them aloud while recording…that’s another thing and it’s not an easy task. Aside of the Dr. Seuss type of short story/rhyme I wrote, read aloud, and posted last Sunday (which is probably more geared towards children and I actually did read it to the children where I work this past week) this is only my second time recording myself. So although it may not be perfect I created the following video from a poem I wrote last year called “Butterfly Wings.”
I hope you enjoyed it. Comments welcomed and encouraged to help me learn & grow.
D0 you appreciate nature? Check out the video below. This is my
favorite song! I can not listen to it without crying. The part that gets to me is the chorus “I see the Lord seated on the throne, exalted, and the train of his robe fills the temple with glory, and the whole earth is filled, and the whole earth is filled, and the whole earth is filled with his glory.” I envision it every time and it is overwhelmingly beautiful to me. I think of the pain in the world, including animals suffering, and then I think of the train of his robe touching earth and I get overwhelmed. This video represents what I envision when I listen to this song, how beautiful everything is with God in it, how things were meant to be! There are some beautiful creatures in this video too!
