In My Voice

Poet Purvi Shah before a performance of the community-based poetry project Together We Are New York

Healing is in motion when a poem reaches an audience/when there is dialogue & response.

Complete these poems by listening & responding.

Start with a little love with Pour Some Sugar on Me.

Ruminate on Kali, Mary, Billie, Birmingham, Charleston.

Find how unrequited love can make an avalanche.

Best “The enemy within” with humor.

Challenge the swami with Saraswati.

Teach thorns a new way to bite.

Or hear Mira’s timely response to Krishna (poem starts at 13:19). A poem nominated for a Pushcart Prize!

Keep the poems turning with the PageTurner Literary Festival.
