So, I wrote a new poem…

Wow. So almost 3 days ago (it was about 7pm at night) I recorded a Facebook LIVE of me doing a poem I had JUST written. I just needed to speak it, it needed to be out. It was like my body was burning every second I kept it inside.
It’s now had almost 5,000 views and over 60 shares…I am blown away and deeply grateful, and I wanted to share it with all of you too.

So this is how it happened: It had begun pouring into me around midday when I was driving to meet a dear friend for chai. It was coming in so fast I was having to memorise every line before the next one hit me. In the end, I said out loud “Look! If you want me to have this poem, you’re going to have to wait. I’m busy!” (A technique I learned from the incredible TED talk by Elizabeth Gilbert)
Later It started pouring in again while I was on the toilet at the cafe. I ran back to the table, jotted it down and once again reminded it that it wasn’t good timing. Please wait till I was ready.

I left the cafe and drove home, by the time I was at my computer it was pouring into me. Line by line. Whole paragraphs.

I wrote it all down… Looked over it, rearranged a few parts and there it was. Done.

Then I recorded this:

I hope you enjoy it, there is a bit of a pre-ramble at the beginning as I didn’t expect it to be something to go beyond my inner circles, but I really hope you enjoy hearing it as much as I enjoyed writing it. (Or perhaps it wrote itself through me… who knows with witchcraft) 

Don’t forget, my next Spoken Word course begins on Oct 25th and there are still places available if you want to join in and utter your own spells into this world.
