Rondall 'N'rituall' Brasher
Poetry is defined by most accounts as an artistic rendition, primarily in
written or spoken form, that depicts a cognitive and imaginative awareness of an
experience. The language and its delivery, whether that may be in written
or spoken form, are chosen and arranged to create a specific emotional response
through meaning, sound, and rhythm. It is also simply defined as something
written by a poet. A poet is defined as someone whom is "especially" gifted in
the "perception" and "expression" of the beautiful or lyrical.
I have started off with these definitions to incite a thought process that relates to an art form with an appeal to me like no other. I hope that my introduction does not come off as some elitist diatribe. I am here to express a subjective truth in the form of my opinion. I am open to dialogue with anyone whom agrees or disagrees with me. In the end, all I want to do is keep it real.
My opinion is formulated by my overt love for words. Words are my music and I play them on paper and vocally. I enjoy the flavor of others whom do the same. The absorption of these words from others keeps me in tune with myriad of poetic meanderings. All in all, they bring joy to my tongue and excite my mind.
My name is Rondall Brasher and I have been a lover of poetry for over three decades. I learned to read through the poetry of Dr. Seuss; I learned to have faith from the poetry Kahlil Gibran; I learned to rebel through the poetry of Amiri Baraka (Leroi Jones), Gil Scott-Heron, The Last Poets, Mutabaruka, and Sonia Sanchez. Anyway, you get the idea.
If you have any questions or comments for me please send an email to: email@example.com. I will respond as quickly as possible. I am also open to hosting poetry chats.
