Poetry Reading: The Painter, by Theresa Pio

Performed by Elizabeth Rose Morriss

Get to know the poet:

What is the theme of your poem?

My themes are Inspirational but also dark

What motivated you to write this poem?

I was watching a Christmas movie while cooking lunch last year in December and this movie had rhyming poems in it. I’m not a poetry fan believe it or not it’s not my writing style but for some reason I managed to pull together this poem that same night in one sitting.

How long have you been writing poetry?

This is my first attempt at Poetry really I call it poetry fluke.

If you could have dinner with one person (dead or alive), who would that be?

Paulo Coehlo

What influenced you to submit to have your poetry performed by a professional actor?

What influenced me to have it read was that the poem has been sitting in my laptop really for nearly a year. I felt the need to do something with it other than it gathering cyber cobwebs lol

Do you write other works? scripts? Short Stories? Etc..?

I’m more of a scriptwriter. I have written a musical and had produced it along with my sister. Since writing this piece I found myself liking poetry more and writing pieces more for children.

What is your passion in life?

Writing, and spending time with my son : )
