I do like poetry and yet…I seldom take the time to sit down and take it in.
My friend recently told me about a wonderful compilation of poems entitled Good Poems
She mentioned that she had found the collection on CD.
*BLINK* I got an inspiration! What if I added the audio collection to my ipod and then set it to shuffle?
I did it. It works perfectly. I hear three or four tunes and then a nice poem then some more music. Since I keep my iPod docked in my sewing room (my ears don’t enjoy having ear-buds stuffed into them) while I work, this new idea has really proven to be brilliant. (I can’t help hearing Doctor Who in my head when I see that word).
The collection has four cd’s and various readers. To date there is only one reader who gets under my skin. She over-enunciates and reads too slowly and has a very breathy style. Fortunately she’s reading some of the shortest pieces. So…it’s all good.
Why not add some poetry to your life this next year?
Blessing to all of you for taking a few minutes to read my drivel. Happy New Year!
