In 2020, Annmarie Sculpture Garden & Arts Center in Maryland invited all ages to send homemade postcards to be included an important community art exhibit. The goal was to collect and exhibit postcards from the community that express our feelings and share how we all coped during the social-distancing period of the COVID-19 crisis. I submitted postcards (see 10:17-10:31) as part of this special online exhibidtion. This is a wonderful view of how artists interpreted this time of COVID-19 and brought messages of faith and hope to the world. Enjoy!
I’m back and looking forward to sharing at least once a month some poetry and featuring a few poets as well.
This edition will focus on two contemporary poets that I fell in love with and largely influenced my first poetry chapbook…instagram sensations Della Hicks-Wilson and Nayyirah Waheed.
I also will share some of my new poetry as well!

Happy National Poetry Month!
This is one of my favorite months of the year because I love poetry. I remember hosting poetry salons and teas in my apartment way back in my Atlanta days (the 90s). I finally moved to writing my own beginning last year.
Since we are finding ourselves indoors these days, I decided to share my love for poetry and my favorite poets online. Sooo…every Saturday during the month of April, I will be on Facebook Live sharing my favorites as well as my own poetry on https://facebook.com/SJBCreates at 11:30 am ET. Join me there and let’s connect and be comforted by the words of these brilliant wordsmiths and celebrate this literary art form.
Today, I will be reading the work of Langston Hughes…join me at 11:30 am ET!
