POETRY 7 questions:
What is the theme of your poem?
What motivated you to write this poem?
This poem was written in 2016 during NaPoWriMo/GloPoWriMo. The prompt was to write a poem that takes the form of a family portrait. Your call for a family poem fitted the piece and hence my submission.
How long have you been writing poetry?
About 10 years and I’m still learning every day.
If you could have dinner with one person (dead or alive), who would that be?
Maya Angelou and Shaaban bin Robert.
What influenced you to submit to have your poetry performed by a professional actor?
I dislike public performance. So your platform is perfect for me to co-share the skill of writing and performing with someone else.
Do you write other works? scripts? Short Stories? Etc..?
I have published books on fantasy/adventure/educational tales with moral lessons. In the published portfolio is also a novella and anthology of thoughts. For anyone interested to know more, I am giving free books to visitors on my website.
What is your passion in life?
Reading, writing and discovering new places.
