These Trees: An anthology of photography and poetry | enjoy yourself | Scoop.it

Award winning photographer and author, Ruthie Rosauer continues on her journey through the gardens and forests of North America and Hawaii.

Join her on her marvelous trek and discover her latest work, "These Trees". Ruthie shares over 130 original images and the poems she selected to go with them.

Kenneth Weene's insight:
I received my two contributor copies of Ms. Rosauer's new book, These Trees, and wanted to share her website. I don't contribute to many anthologies, but how could this Broody New Englander resist a request for poems about trees?

An Afghan Poet Shapes Metal and Hard Words

An Afghan Poet Shapes Metal and Hard Words | enjoy yourself | Scoop.it
Many Afghans who have grown cynical after years of war have found a voice in a sharp-tongued poet who fixes trucks by day and writes by night.
Kenneth Weene's insight:

It is good to remember that words shaped into art can be heard by entire worlds. This hard speaking poet may help to redeem his nation. At the same time, tribal loyalty seldom celebrates the tribes of others.

‘Paterson’ is poetry in motion - The Boston Globe

‘Paterson’ is poetry in motion - The Boston Globe | enjoy yourself | Scoop.it
Jim Jarmusch’s latest movie is a small, resonant masterpiece about the beauty of everyday life and a bus driver (Adam Driver) who’s also a poet.
Kenneth Weene's insight:
Easily one of my favorite movies of the past year. I do think that there is a big idea here that the reviewer missed, that everyday life is poetry and that poetry often celebrates everyday life. As a writer that is a very important point to me. As for Golshifteh Farahani's character, my wife and I found her a brilliant designer whose devotion to using black and white reflects the poetry of her bus-driver husband. As for the dog: Do we have an Oscar for best animal performance?
