Flowpoetry: The Days That Might Be, Issue #4
Having bridged the gap between poetry and music, Flowpoetry’s progressive and chill approach to spoken word jam transcends musical boundaries and interlaces shared storytelling and poetic vibration into a communal and collective consciousness that unifies the ancient and future as one. With over 950 shows in the USA with bands and as a solo poet, Flowpoetry has been honored as a finalist for the MNSWA “Urban Griot” International/National Performer of the year alongside other poets such as Leonard Cohen and Saul Williams. In 2014, Flowpoetry was voted as one of Madison Magazine’s Best Spoken Word/Poetry Performers. He is a three-time finalist for Best Artist in the Annual Madison WI Area Music Awards.

This week’s poem is called “The Days That Might Be.” It is a short rhyming meditation on what has gone on before and what might be. The rhythm here is repetitive and when read aloud, softly and slowly, always leads the author into trance and reverie. Feeling the passage of time very deeply of late and with the new year still so fragile and frozen in the middle of winter, Flowpoetry felt inclined to share this piece. Keep hope in your hearts and poetry on your lips, and never stop dreaming.
