Program Description



We all have things we are passionate about; be it cause or person. I am passionate about love…there are times when my love, passion, and pleasure collide. These poems are the blood of my emotions dripped onto the page for the world to see. Join me as I share poems from my collection, Passions Released, and discuss the reason some poems were birthed, answer questions, and reflect on the importance of sharing your intimate truth. I will also share the short story that is tucked inside this delectable selection. I look forward to sharing my passion for poetry this Valentine's Day.
