Day 5 of 30 Days of Poetry, Jazz & Earth Day Awareness: Celebrating Dr. King and his teachings on love

Happy Monday!

This morning I went walking … speed walking.  During my walk, I thought about the sacrifices Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. made for so many of us.  When I returned from my walk, I read Nikki Giovanni’s poem “The Funeral of Martin Luther King Jr.”   Giovanni wrote the poem on April 9, 1968. Click on the Cinchcast audio blog to hear me read the poem.  I also read my poem “The Word” from my new book That Which Awakens Me: A Creative Woman’s Poetic Memoir of Self-Discovery.

What is your favorite word?

Here are six of my favorite words:  Poetry. Jazz. Earth. Soul stories unfold.

Enjoy your day and week!

Peace, Creativity, Compassion, and Gratitude for Dr. King and his teachings on love,
