Etiam pulvinar consectetur dolor sed malesuada. Ut convallis euismod dolor nec pretium. Nunc ut tristique massa.

Nam sodales mi vitae dolor ullamcorper et vulputate enim accumsan. Morbi orci magna, tincidunt vitae molestie nec, molestie at mi. Nulla nulla lorem, suscipit in posuere in, interdum non magna.

Janet Kuypers’ “Finding Peace” 8/5/17 poetry feature @ Austin’s the Baha’i Center

    Below are video links and poem text links from the August 5th 2017 (8/5/17, or 201700805) poetry performance “Finding Peace” (accompanied by “Wayward Waltz of the Skewed Mind” music from the HA!Man of South Africa) of Janet Kuypers’ Austin poetry feature through ” Expressions! Presents “Peace Poetry, Please”” at Austin’s the Bahá’í Center.

    In this show, Janet Kuypers’ decided to tackle different people think of the word peace, as highlighted in her first (and very new) poem “Protecting Peace can Put you in Prison”), about how even Nobel peace laureates and be imprisoned for peaceful intentions and killed. She then switched gears by sharing poems about the deaths of each of her parents, and how some may need to look for peace to “Really Physically Heal” from illness, or how people look for peace by “Keeping the Peace and Coming to Peace”. For her final poem, she had to once again share the vegetarian-themed poem she used as the final poem in the previous year’s peace-themed show there, “On a High Horse Like This”, read while she remained in the lotus position to relax at the end of her show.
