Love this, spoken word! Yay!
I thought you might!! :)
DO NOT TAKE THIS DOWN. Be brave. It is beautiful. You are beautiful.
Haha, okay! I won’t! I was just a little scared. Thank you so much for the affirmation.
Beautifully done. So different from the way you deliver your sermons. Both ways, of course, are exquisite.
Interesting comment! How so? I’m not intentionally being different, just following the flow.
There’s an intimacy from the camera, particularly straight on. (I always see your sermons from the side, or hear them online, without visuals.) But, your face colors and moves through this spoken and filmed poem. For me, there’s a steadiness in your sermon deliveries – you and God speaking in unison. Not to say that God is not in the poems, as God certainly poems each and every one of us, but “Proclamation” is the quiet vulnerable (and courageous) God of you speaking. This is the transparent God that distills herself into the Sunday poetry of your sermons.
Oh, that is a fascinating observation. Thank you. With the filming, I really had to envision people on the other end for it to feel authentic, but I think it worked. I like that I didn’t feel the need to project at all–I could speak as softly as I would to one friend across the table.
Yes, about the “softly.” That, too, can be your strength as a slam poet.
I don’t want . . . you to remove this.
It’s too great!
You bear the seeds of greatness in so many important ways, Kyndall!
Thank you, thank you.
This is beautiful. I hope you don’t take this down because I just sent a link to my daughter, who needs to hear this. Thank you. (from someone who’s been following you via pmb/fb)
Cool, thank you for sharing. I plan to leave it up now that so many people have seen it.
