NEW YEARS EVE 2010

I just wanted to give a quick thank you to everyone who reads my blog.  We all seem to be a quiet bunch, but I see you on my stats.  I'd love to hear more from you in the coming year. And, I hope to give you more  creative work as well. I'm hoping to fit more arts events into this coming year. I'll keep you posted. I'm off to celebrate in a safe and sane way and I hope you all do too.  I'll be back with reflection tomorrow as I eat my black eyed peas.

HAVE FUN!!!

African Diasporic Voices-ORIGINS


Wondering how the African Diasporic Voices page works?  Well let me tell yah. So far, I have listed one writing prompt, but that writing prompt has 4 phases.  And, that writing prompt asks you to take a look at the MOAD website.  The website will take you through the 4 phases as well, but I’d love it if you would share at least some of your poetic creations here as well.  Here is a piece of my origin poem, “Origin”. Just to get us started:

Origin
By Ieisha McIntyre


This is where we begin
--the root.
We spring from blackness
The black ness, the beginning place.  
The place of nothing. before
the place where all things come. together 
and from where all things are born . . . 


There is more to this poem. It will be in book form soon.  If you like it, let me know by commenting!  And please do take a moment and add your poem and a link to the rest of it.  Blessings!
