OctPoWriMo works :)

The challenge on #OctPoWriMo today was to record yourself reading a poem. I remember how mortified I was when I read that prompt last year, but that I jumped in anyhow. I had never written a poem out loud, not even to my boyfriend.

I credit the prompt as an important contribution to me reading poems on stage half a year later, en to even share that experience on YouTube.

Today I’d like to share both recordings. Both to honour how marvellous this prompt has been for me, And because I have three children running around the house today, not a great setting for a new recording.

      Thank you! It was suprised by how different it is to read my poem in my head, or to read it out loud. It was as if I didn’t even know how it’s supposed to sound. Strange phenomenon.
