A poem with an obvious double meaning, and yet what kind of surrender is her death...submission or freedom?
Both written and performed by Jade Moon
Lighter Than Air
A love letter to words...
...the way they can shroud or expose truth, explain something clearly, or wrap it in metaphor to reach or souls understanding instead.
As wands they can be used for good or ill, to reveal or deceive, but no matter which they have an unquestionable power
Spoken they can wind a magic of both resonance and meaning around us, drawing us into the hypnotic trance of a chant; encouraging us to follow on the path of story; up wards into the ecstacy of an experience or deep into the quiet observance of the poet.
I have been performing poetry for around 20 years now and these are the things i choose to explore in its realms. My first spoken poetry was part of a Butoh (Japanese dance style) performance, i have moved from there through to performing in various cabaret style events, mostly raising money for charity, to now performing my pieces with my collective Bone Song.
My tryptic of poems inspired by Bone Songs reimagining of the Red Riding Hood tale have been accepted for publication in a wolf anthology, printed by Slice of Moon Books, that will be raising money for wolf conservation. The publication will be available on Amazon from November.
