Spoken Word – Reading of Gabriela Marie Milton’s Poetry

I am humbled by Swarn’s [@theedemaruh] decision to read two of my poems: Prayer published by Free Verse Revolution, and I Want My Body Burned included in my poetry collection Passions: Love Poems and Other Writings.

Swarn captured and deepened the meaning of my poems. The tone and the execution of the readings are superb. They are a testimony of his great talent. While listening to his recitation I asked myself: Can he see into my soul? It certainly felt that way.

A note to you my dear readers. It is not about how many followers you have. It is about their quality. It’s about how they can enrich your life, and how you can enrich theirs.

As the song goes:
May you always do for others
And let others do for you

– Bob Dylan

Please listen to Swarn’s readings.

    1. Thank you Timothy. He is great and I was touched by his gesture. Sending purrs and treats. Are the owlets flying?

  1. How wonderful to hear your poetry read aloud! A fitting tribute. I imagine you also read it beautifully yourself 😊

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words Ingrid. Swarn is great. Me? Reading? Oh, yes, I opened an YouTube account (Gabriela Marie Milton) about a month ago. I cannot remember exactly. I did not share it with anyone. I made two video. I read my poetry. However, my allergies were bothering me so much, my throat was so sore, that I made a mess of the readings. Anyway I left the readings there. I feel better now so one of this days I will do it again.
      Have a beautiful day and thank you for always being here for me.
      xoxo

  3. Beautiful … congratulations Gabriela! … I do something similar, read in the Czech language … there are wonderful experiences when reading … it is something completely extraordinary … even for him, reading your poems was exceptional … and yes, he looked into your soul, because that’s where the words came from. Surely you know what I’m talking about, suddenly my life is full of wonderful coincidences, I write every day and it seems like I’m writing my own reality: Last week I wrote: – There is an influx of poetry, you sweep everything-
    and I hear at the end of the reading …wawe… stroking the beach …. thank you, an exceptional experience with You.

    1. Thank you so much. Your comment took my breath away.
      ” there are wonderful experiences when reading … it is something completely extraordinary.” I agree with you.

      ” suddenly my life is full of wonderful coincidences, I write every day and it seems like I’m writing my own reality: Last week I wrote: – There is an influx of poetry, you sweep everything-
      and I hear at the end of the reading …wawe… stroking the beach …. thank you, an exceptional experience with You.” I am the one who should thank YOU for those unbelievable words. You brought tears to my eyes. May the muse be with you forever and ever….and ever… May you shine and be happy. May all your experiences be exceptional.

      1. Thanks, Gabriela, I wish the Muse never leaves You. These are hard times for all of us, but Poetry can show us the way …. to show that not everyone cares about monstrous SUVs, money, how much someone has….

        Gabriela, on Sunday 6.6. at 6 o’clock in the morning I am preparing something that no one has ever done … I will read poetry on the spot … in a very special place … right now I’m getting ready for it .

        I wish you all the best, only the best, have a very nice time!

        Poetry! Poets ! You ! Us.

      2. “I will read poetry on the spot … in a very special place … right now I’m getting ready for it ” Oh, good luck to you. I am sure it will be marvelous.

        Thank you so much for the kind wishes.

        “Poetry! Poets ! You ! Us.” Indeed.
        Sending you the most beautiful roses.
