Booktube Bites is a weekly segment in which I spotlight cool bookish videos on the internet. I will discuss some entertaining videos and Booktubers which you can check out. Feel free to participate as well, and send in your own recommendations of videos you would like spotlighted.
Since April is National Poetry Month, I’ll be doing something a little different for Booktube Bites. Instead of bookish videos I’ll celebrating the power of poetry by sharing a couple of my favorite performance videos every week! I hope you will enjoy these poems!
“I’m a Rainbow In Somebody’s Cloud” – Maya Angelou
A fantastic poem by a truly inspirational woman. I love many of Angelou’s poems, so it was hard to pick just one. This poem spreads the message to slow down in life, and take time out for others.
“Open-Hearted Beauty” – Ahlaam
This powerful poem is by Ahlaam, a spoken word poet. A young girl tells her that she is beautiful and in return she wonders what does “beautiful” really mean? I love her message about beauty being skin deep and the internal struggle of seeing yourself as beautiful and choosing to be happy.
“Repetition” – Phil Kaye
A deep poem about the power of repetition and what it does to words. In one way, repetition can make a word lose its true meaning. On the other hand, when an repetitive word is presented in a new light, it can bring a new meaning.
This concludes my last compilation of poetry videos for National Poetry Month (sorry I missed last week’s post). However I will continue to post/share new and exciting poetry in future Booktube Bites posts! I hope you enjoy these poems and have a great weekend. 🙂
