People's Poetry Festival

October 2018
My poem Be Not Afraid was chosen for a collaboration by visual artist Julie Deleo, and here is the magnificent result! Project conceptualized and curated by Loft 112 in Calgary. The piece was inspired by a line from Shakespeare's The Tempest: Be Not Afeared.
Excerpt:
Dream yourself a home in the trees, a walk
To sip and bathe in stream, a meal of nuts
and berries. Dream a winter shelter too,
Built of log and snow. Dream leather upon
The soles of your feet to tread these worn paths:

A dream so sweet that should you awaken,
You would cry to dream again …
