Happy Creativity Thursday and National Poetry Month!

Today, I am celebrating the poetry of Derrick Weston Brown, an educator and a “people’s poet.”  He is also the author of Wisdom Teeth. Derrick is a dear friend and an extraordinarily gifted wordsmith.

His poetry gets underneath my skin and travels to the depths of my soul. When I hear him read his work, I am stopped in my tracks. Click here to watch his Wisdom Teeth trailer. Be sure to check his book out on Amazon.com. Go on and buy a copy! His poetry will expand your mind! Enjoy!

Who are your favorite poets?

Recap from 30 Days of Poetry, Jazz & Earth Day Awareness – Listen to Ananda’s audio blogs from April 24 – 30

National Poetry Month 2010 was amazing!  My 30 Days of Poetry, Jazz, and Earth Day Awareness celebration gave me a chance to rediscover some of my favorite poets and poems. I also discovered new poets and poems.  I had big fun recording my audio blogs and posting them on Cinchcast, Twitter, and Facebook each day.  Just in case you missed listening to them, I have included a list of links for the period of April 24 to April 30 below.  Enjoy!
