Ariadne’s News: On May 2, 1-2 pm PST, CFRO 100.5 FM, the World Poetry Café radio show had a fascinating show with celebrating two book launches with Nima Tshering from Bhutan and Ahmad Ahmad Al-Khatat, a talented Iraqi Canadian poet! I will do separate features for each guest.

The show began with a healing song by a Hopi Elder and later continued with a solo woman’s voice song in a cave in Albania that is supposed to have the best acoustics in the world.

Featured e-poem Rain of Peach Petals was also from Bhutan sent by Ngawang Tenzin ,currently working as Radio Jockey for Tsangla (Native dialect of eastern populace) for Bhutan Broadcasting Service Corporation.

This was an  special show for us with two book launches, a recorded message from Bhutan and a poem in Arabic by Ahmad Al-Khatat, a short story from Sharon’s new book More Big Bessie Stories  and more!

“The title of my book is “songs of lonely raven” here is the synopsis of my book, I heard the old, old men say, poetry is a tapestry of thoughts and wonders. And I truly believe that one cannot be a poet without connecting with nature: a strong bond exists between the nature and the poet. To live and die without wondering and asking questions is a life wasted. Life has a lot to offer us and if we even try to unlock these treasures buried deep inside us, its has the ability to change us. Scientist use deduction and empiricism to understand nature: whilst poetry is the poet’s magic tool and always remember all that is wild is beautiful and wondrous like the daises.”

World Poetry Proudly Presents Sheilla Foster from Canada!

Ariadne’s note: We would like to wish all of our readers and supporters a Happy Holiday and thank them all for their kindness and support.
I am honoured to welcome Sheilla Foster, “World Poetry’s Queen of Limericks” with her new book Lighthearted Limericks published by World Poetry Publishing, 2012. It shows that no matter how young or old, we can all make a positive difference in the world. Bravo Sheilla!

Be sure to visit her website www.lightheartedlimericks.com!

 

Sheilla Foster was born in Edmonton where it snows a lot in winter and it is very hot in the summer. She moved to Vancouver when she was 16. After graduating from high school she worked for a short while as a switchboard operator. Later she became a truck driver for the Canadian Red Cross Blood Transfusion Service which allowed her to travel all over British Columbia. At that time she also earned a pilot’s license.
Sheilla is married and has three grown sons. After her sons were older, she started teaching night school which she did until she was 75. She started writing limericks when she was 80.

There once was a bonnie bragh turtle
In a fair Scottish glen green and fertile.
      He wore his clan’s kilt
And he sang with a lilt
As he stirred his oatmeal with a spirtle.

A polar bear living in Nunavut
Likes to slide on the snow for the fun of it.
Sooo if you’d like some snow
And don’t know where to go,
Go to Nunavut—you’ll find a ton of it.
