Spoken Word Poetry: Sarah Kay

Sarah Kay is a spoken word poet. Sarah Kay is a whirlwind of beautiful words and an incredible presence on stage. It is almost as if she is telling you one story with her voice anda second with her hands. She has a pitch perfect tone and just the right balance between eloquent and clutz.

I discovered her through the TED talks podcast. well worth subscribing to by the way.You can watch the video here or below

“If I should have a daughter, instead of Mom, she’s gonna call me Point B … ”

But their were two particular pieces from her poems in that talk that had stayed with me so I chose both of them to share with you today. They reference determination and never giving up and I love in particular the imagery the first brings to mind.

When in need of a little inspiration, time and again I turn to poetry, to Emily Dickinson, Kipling, Yeats. The majority of the poets that I like are dead! But Sarah Kay is one of the few alive and living poets works whom I love.

If you have a poet you think I should check out, share in the comments.
