Poetic Verse: A Workshop for Poetic Lovers

4 Jul

VERSE is any expression in words which conforms to accepted metrical rules and structure. It seems as though in that definition poetry can be studied and learned. As if it can follow a uniformed pattern and perhaps a syllabus.

However time progressed and so has life and expressionism of art did the very same. Poetry became an art of rhythmical composition, written or spoken, for exciting pleasure by beautiful, imaginative, or elevated thoughts moved by both spirit and feeling. POETRY IS lofty thought or impassioned feeling expressed in imaginative words inspired by any and all things, external and internal.
First you had verse, which grew into Elizabethan poetry where men wrote sonnets to express the scent of a woman’s gloved hand. You have limericks that are bawdy and go well with a tankard of ale and tell fanciful stories. There are odysseys written, and epics told and with a cup of Bacchus the griots gave history lessons of old. Face it poetry as verse with its structured pentameter, beat or prose freeform with musical accompaniment on stage with a bass is still the telling of a story in an artistic mien.

With this workshop hopefully it will be a stepping stone to writing down inspirational thoughts, the pictures imagined in your head, the feelings in your heart, the stories soaring through your soul, the message caught in your throat, a process that no one here will have to go through alone.

Written By: Jael Constantine

Starting July 13th,We are going to starting having these workshops to help fellow People who love poetry,but can’t quite come up with the words to develop a great poem..

We Started of with Ms.Lolo Upsilon Blessed Up with a Selection From the Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin! The Crowd Really Enjoyed it,and she got tips on top of tips and standing ovation!

Then I Blessed the crowd with one of my many pieces,but this one was recently new..its called “Music,Soul & HipHop”, it was a very short piece but explain my love for those kinds of music..below is a preview of it

Music,Soul & Hip Hop
By: Lady T
A foundation,

a way of life

its the creation

created by years of strife

Motivating force

for things throughout history

it has lost to the worst

but rose again, Victory-

written in every word on all our lyric sheets

be proud of what WE made be proud of who we be.

Black people, belittled yet we don’t stop

To live and grow through music, soul, and Hip Hop.

After i read that piece and a few more facts on music month, our singer, Ms.Inifiniti Cummings Blessed us with a few selections,she was amazing as usual,and i was happy to have her here at the celebration.

After that i read my other poem of the night title “For the Love of Music”,i think this was the crowds favorite,and i also got a lot of love for it!

Our Last Singer Was my very own Diva Sister Ms. Sherri Avelino. She was very shy,but that didn’t stop her from rocking the crowd…she did an amazing job and i was happy to have her here at the celebration,and can’t wait to have her back doing her thing.

I did my last poem of the night “The Rhythm” and they also enjoy that piece as well. It explains my feeling and emotion towards music.All three of our singers was taking turns blessing our amazing crowd,and it turned into a mini concert..it was an amazing event..and I think everybody for coming…and the amazing singer for making it a huge success. Join Us Next year..same time,same place!
