    Get to know Kim Lee Seagull – 7 Questions

1) What is the theme of your poem?

My poem “Lady of the Moon” is the archetype of the wonderful, mystical attraction of the mighty Sun God, for the beautiful, sensuous Moon Goddess.

2) How would you like people to respond when they read or watch your poetry reading?

I do hope lovers will like it, because it is for them.

3) How long have you been writing poetry?

I started writing when I was a child in grade nine in High School.

4) Do you have a favorite poet?

There are too many great poems for me to like just one poet. I like the Lucy poems by William Wordsworth; Byron’s She Walks In Beauty Like The Night; The Snowflake and The Hound of Heaven by Francis Thompson; In Memory of W. B. Yeats by W.H. Auden; I Taste a Liquor Never Brewed by Emily Dickinson; A Hymn to God the Father by John Donne; They Flee From Me That Sometime Did Me Seek by Sir Thomas Wyatt; When You Are Old by William Butler Yeats; Kubla Khan by Samuel Taylor Coleridge and A Whisper In The Wind and To My Children by June Helen Fleming, just to mention a few favorite poets poems.

5) What influenced you to submit to WILDsound and have your poetry performed by a professional actor?

WILDsound is the master of performance, whether it be for screenplays, short stories or poetry. They did a lovely job for my poetry entries in the past, and WILDsound did a great job of scenes from my mothers screenplay. I intend to send in a long and complicated play I wrote called “The Sun God,” for a professional look see, and guidance, when it‘s done.

6) Do you write other works? Scripts? Short Stories? Etc..?

I have written mostly everything except a screenplay, or books for children.

7) What is your passion in life?

I am a writer and an artist. The artist in me works mainly with ink in the stippled drawing style. The favorite subject of my art is to do portraits of people I admire as my way to thank them for the magnificent gifts they brought into the world that touch me personally. The writer in me likes to explain things in a way that has never been done before, in order to reveal a new Platonic Form. My greatest love, poetry, is the most mystical, and the most exalted form for me, because lines pop right into my head perfectly formed from the transcendent realm. It must be that God writes the poem for me, and all I do is hold the pen.
