Last year, I started a project but never quite followed through on it. My poem “Death to Noisy Eyeballs” was made into a video as I spoke the words and played the ukulele. Now, I am finally starting a collection.
I think anyone who shares the pain, frustration, sadness, and anger over something like chronic illness and invisible disabilities, could use a good laugh, so I will continue to share the videos as I create them.
Humor can be found in the darkest of situations, which is the theme of my book Ink Sketches for Wellness: Poems on My Life with Invisible Disabilities. A new cover was recently designed for the book as I’m always learning new ideas and techniques for my books.
You can check out the videos here, on YouTube. This link will take you to the Invisible Disability Poetry playlist I have started. I look forward to creating more!
Do you write poetry or play the ukulele? Have you ever thought about combining them? I would love to hear about it! Send me an email or comment!
