I’ve been lucky enough to be invited to take part in a poetic collaboration which I believe deserves a huge amount of support. Over at Forgotten Meadows, something truly beautiful is happening. A collaboration of poets are coming together to promote the cause ‘Poets for Peace’.
Each poet is sharing their thoughts and feelings on the escalation of violence and hatred that appears to be everywhere in the world, apparently more than ever before. No hatred of genders, races, political persuasions, religions or beliefs is expressed, just the hatred of violence itself.
This has been launched by Michael of The Poetry Channel and is hosted on Forgotten Meadows.
Even if I hadn’t been invited to take part, I would have promoted this cause anyway once I learned about it. I began my own poetic forays into expressing my fears of (government mandated) violence as a young teenager, so this is a subject close to my heart.
Praxis Magazine Online will be publishing the collaboration, thanks to the kind assistance of Laura M. Kominski.
Please do take some time to visit Forgotten Meadows and learn more about Poets for Peace – and please do take part if you feel moved to do so.
