Poetry is in the break, the beat, The human machine… Poetry is sounds, not words… Poetry is a confession.
In this sampling from “The Song of Poetry,” Masiela Lusha captures the essence of the creative process itself and the richness of her own poetic style as shared in the pages of her collection, Drinking the Moon. Crafting ethereal descriptions of sights, sounds, and feelings common to us all, she delves deeper into the human experience and helps us to look at the world, people, and situations around us in a more appreciative, knowing light. With her keen observer’s eye, she carefully, lyrically examines subjects from love and heartbreak to death and mistrust, from travel abroad to the dissolution of a friendship, to vignettes amplifying how the beauty of nature stems from an artist’s touch. With these details, Lusha paints a portrait of the multi-faceted richness of everyday life.
