|my little river, the Scioto, October 22, 2010 (a few bass, but no whales)|
I find that reading other people’s work aloud
is the most tender and respectful,
and also the most careful,
way to engage with it.
I hope you will join me in this continuing celebration.
I was quite honored to be contacted by Nic Sebastian who asked if she might read my poem "Infinity" on her classy website, Whale Sound. Nic chooses contemporary poems, freely available online, which touch her on a certain level. She then reads them in her marvelous British accent, and posts them on her site, as her way of celebrating web-active poets.
Click here to visit Whale Sound for a dark and delicious reading of my piece, as well as a plethora of recordings of excellent poetry. Nic's beautiful, haunting interpretation of my poem "Infinity" was posted today, October 25, so if you visit after today, click on the October archives for a listen.
Thank you, Nic, for contributing to the promotion of poets and poetry, by embracing technology in this unique and beautiful way. Poetry is meant to be read aloud, the sounds and textures to be savored and enjoyed.
