I Got Interviewed


It has happened. I got interviewed at Poets United, a  robust poetry community that boasts of more than 210 active members and more than 70,000 visitors. I owe it to you, my reader, for being such an inspiration in my writing. I write for you. Thank you Sherry Blue Sky ( "Koko") for making this possible.

I also thank Tororot, the God of the Rising Sun, for lighting my path. I said that 2011 will be my poetry year.

To the many voiceless ones whose voices can't rise beyond a whisper, those suffering injustices in their varied forms and those who put their lives in the line for a better world, keep up the good work. Take consolation in the fact that though you be humiliated and harrassed and even killed whether in broad daylight or at night, in limelight or in the shadows, your whispers will all filter into an echo, an echo so loud it will ricochet off , bouncing on and on the walls of history, past, present or the future,  for the cause you fought for.

Most sincerely,
Salem Lorot " Lorot Son of the Hills"

Salem, again the beauty of your words, as you speak for the voiceless, fills me with hope. I know a bright future is shining ahead for you, because you have worked hard, because your heart is true and filled with fire to do great things, and Tororot has blessed you with an amazing talent. I am going to enjoy watching things unfold for you. Koko

@ Sherry Blue Sky, and again too, I appreciate that Koko. The way things are happening fast, Koko, I have a feeling blessings are chasing me down. They are not raining, they are pouring. You will watch them unfold and while reading these comments, we will reminisce, saying, " Told ya, Kiddo, grandmom's intuition, grandson..See..."

@ Raining Iguanas, thank you good friend. I am also honestly honoured to have you here. If only you peered into my heart to see how glad I am.
