Saying goodbye to NAPOMO . . .
Poetry can be used as Performance Art for a ACTIVISM to promote a SOCIAL CAUSE!

My morning writing ~
I sometimes write to understand myself or to “frame” a moment in-time by slowing down to observe my world around me. This might be seen as observational or descriptive poetry. However, I prefer to consider it meditative poetry ~ being in touch with your self & connecting it to the present moment.
Also I have written on environmental & social concerns, but not as performance art. I might have to give it a try one of these days. I find I am always transformed by experiencing art & stories in any form.
Every single day we can find poetry around us if we take time to look & to listen.
On television this week, I loved the surprise of seeing poetry used & reported to bring attention to national political cause. How great is that!
Thank you Lin-Manuel Miranda.
