Watch the Poetry Reading of TIMELESS BELOVED:
Poetry Performed by actress Maya Woloszyn
Get to know poet Emmanuel Hampton:
1) What is the theme of your poem?
The theme of “Timeless Beloved” is remembrance. Rekindling a connection between artist and his creation. It is a yearning to keep the presence of true love close; and to cherish it forever. It is not about a particular person, but about the love of art and creation.
2) How would you like people to respond when they read or watch your poetry reading?
I want them to feel it. I want them to keep that passion, that love, that one thing that drives their existence; and hold it close. I want it to provoke greater works within themselves and beyond.
3) How long have you been writing poetry?
I have been writing poetry for a very long time. I’ve always loved free verse and lyrics and that is what has always been my passion. Plus, I don’t know what my life would be like with music; and my band The Suns Of Kora!!!!!!!
4) Do you have a favorite poet?
I would have to say Allen Ginsberg. I have always loved his freedom of expression approach. He wasn’t afraid to speak his mind and use poetry to do so. I love all BOLD writers!!!!!!!
5) What influenced you to submit to WILDsound and have your poetry performed by a professional actor?
Why not!!!!!!! Life is a great experience and we should live to share, advance, and propel to greater heights!!!!!!! I love the thrill of living, and doing! Having an actor share in my work is simply beauty shared!!!!!!! 🙂
6) Do you write other works? scripts? Short Stories? Etc..?
I write lyrics, short stories, and plots for possible television shows or movies.
7) What is your passion in life?
To live a life embodies art, passion, and drive!!!!!!! I am a very creative person and I believe that should be the architectural build for everyone. To do what you love and progress from there!!!!!!!
