  • Share the Laughter.... with Pam and Friends "Real and Imaginary"

    in Poetry

    Join me as together we share the simple pleasures of friendship, laughter and poetry.
    "In the sweetness of friendship let there be laughter, and sharing of pleasures. For in the dew of little things the heart finds its morning and is refreshed." Khalil Gibran
    I love to laugh, I love to make people laugh, poetry to me is a creative outlet in which to share humor. I want us together to explore the variety of humor in poetry ranging from give people something to think about to so cheesy we serve it up with bread and wine and everything in between.
    Please note for this show humor and poetry should not make negative comments or belittle people in anyway for religious or political beliefs, race, nationality or sexual orientation Politics should be kept to a minimum and subtle nothing vulgar or graphic, avoid naming specific sex acts and body parts
    So come on in pull up a chair and join me for an evening of laughter and poetry.

    Late Night...
    Another late night and my thoughts wander... drawing from my memories, strong emotions, needing to be expressed. My pen almost burning in my hand as I hold it firmly, trying to begin. My thoughts jumbled together, the only common thread is the emotion. Suddenly, my pen glides on paper, sentences appear, first one then another. Verse after verse, each yearning to be heard and understood. Seeking refuge in the quiet of the late night. These confessions calm my soul.

  • "It Goes A Little Bit Like This"...with APTaylor

    in Poetry

    It's your poetry show  ... Open microphone.....Encouraging.... Supportive.... Remember, your pen has potential ......When we hear your voice, you have power!
     It goes a little bit like this, is completely in the hands of the audience.  We never quite know who will be calling next.  And we never know what poetry pieces we will be hearing.  So buckle up for the ride with the most coffee sharing, cow gif posting, avatar changing, emoticon using group of late night poets that you are ever likely to bump into, in this one place.  It goes a little bit like this, poetry on the edge of well, something.
    Late nights, reflect mornings, as end of day in the USA Is lunchtime in my home town (except the following day.) But upside down and running is familiar to us in Southern climes. So we keep the lines open in distant cities as seek rhymes. As I travel around my country with a few side journeys beside. Everyone is welcome to join, guessing where that day I reside. In my study, an airport or in a field with mosquitos three. You never quite know where you may find AP.

  • B. Fly's Poetry Lounge Welcomes Poet & Spoken Word Artist Negus Adeyemi

    in Poetry

    On This Epiosde of The Beautiful Butterfly Radio Show We Welcome Poet & Spoken Word Artist Negus Adeyemi.
    Negus Adeyemi was born in the borough of Brooklyn and raised in New Jersey by parents from the Caribbean island of Barbados. With the fortune of having his father being a calypsonian and folk musician, he literally grew up around storytelling and performing. It was not until he graduated from NJIT (New Jersey Institute of Technology) in 2008 with a B.S. degree in Electrical Engineering that he himself began to seriously write poetry. Passionate about his culture and heritage from the time of his conception, Negus displays these and many more emotions in every one of his poems. Exuberant with these emotions, he is very ardent about producing poetry that focuses on the cultivation and edification of his people. He utilizes a plethora of ways and topics for people to relate and connect with his messages. As a poet, his goal is to express himself in a manner that enlightens, heals, uplifts, guides and augments the hue man spirit.
    ?
    Negus is much more than just a writer, also holding the titles of father, husband and electrical engineer. Negus currently lives back in his birth city of Brooklyn, New York. Through his artistic journey thus far, he has performed his poetry at many different venues including various universities, colleges, libraries, bookstores, fundraisers and multiple other events throughout North America. He has written four books of poetry to date which include, L.O.V.E. (Letting Out Vast Emotions) which was released in June of 2009, Mind Of A Mature Lion [January 2011], Soularadiance [April 2014] and now his latest book Gemineye [April 2017] which can be purchased here: www.adeyemiartistry.com/shop
