As I look back on my experience of joining the virtual staging of the 10th Jamaica Poetry Festival 2020, I am still beaming with pride. Respect due to Yasus, Jamaica Poetry Festival family and all the amazing sponsors for making it bigger and better than ever! #JPF2020
I was honoured to represent Jamaica and the United Kingdom while we celebrated the contributions of inspirational Jamaicans including the iconic Miss Lou, Olive Senior. I was proud to note that I was the only poet with a nursing background. It demonstrated how the art of nursing beautifully intertwines with the healing art of poetry.
It was an inspirational showcase of poetry on a global stage with wonderful poets from 10 countries. Mother Earth truly rejoices. Check out the show here if you missed it. Jamaica Poetry Festival 2020
Remember the Kenyan proverb, “Treat the Earth well. It was not given to you by your parents. It is loaned to you by your children”. 🌞🌎🌏🌍🇯🇲❤️💛💚
How wonderful it was, let’s see what other amazing opportunities Mother Earth has in store.
