Happy New Year Update!



Ariadne’s Notes:

I want to thank all  the World Poetry Participants , publishers, the World Poetry Canada International closed groups Peaceathon, World Poetry Youth Team  and, media partners in print and digital  poetry association partners and  film partners. In 2017, the film partners reached numbered 7 and we are grateful for their wonderful films and the opportunity to promote them. We hope to expand into other media as well.


The World Poetry Café radio show has been on the air continually since 1991 and the current team will be adding a couple of guest hosts in January and February. We just received a certificate from the station which I hope to post.

The show how has now reached 101 countries and the book launches have also been very popular with a wait list for a variety of  guests from LA and New York , USA, as well as the world.

The World Poetry Peace Celebration still has poems to be read on the show and certificates to be sent out. 700 peace poems were received and are being read on the show with more coming in.

I want to thank all of your who have sent messages, phoned and contacted me in appreciation of what World Poetry has done for them, opened the doors for contacts and positive exposure and in bringing the poets, musicians, artists, writers together worldwide as a family in support of respect, love and peace.  As one media person put it! “They love your positive and respectful show!’’

 A big thank you to are directors and advisors!

This is a volunteer position for me and I hope to do the best job possible promoting all of you.

In the new year, we hope to expand with a FB Media Page, podcasts and World Poetry Media reporters searching out and reporting on positive news with the goals of respect, unity, love and peace.

In peace, respect and love,



WP Peaceathon Partner Vani Pradeep from India!

 Ariadne’s Notes: World Poetry Canada International Peaceathon  welcomes another wonderful partner from India! Vani Pradeep. Peace is in good hands with her.




She writes: “I have been into content writing and poetry crafting since 2001. I love the works of Shakespeare, William Wordsworth, John Keats and several other poets. My first English poem ‘Mother’ was published in www.poetry.com. My writing took the major international platform in 2013. Recognition came from a Jamaican fine artist – the Editor-in-Chief of ‘Lucienne Lovelette The Arts Magazine Collection International’ (LLTAMCI) – The introduction poem for their edition went from me apart from few other poems. Now, My works are with the magazine for their hardcopy launch in The US in the name: ‘BIAM’. Opportunities from World Poetry Canada in recognition of my ’emotions based poetry’ are having me go the next steps in my poetry work. My peace poetry was on Display for World Peaceathon Exhibit at UBC. I was recently on a couple of weekly radio shows for the ‘National Poetry Month’ on ‘World Poetry Open Mic’ and was also the phone guest on World Poetry Cafe Radio streaming @ 100.5 FM.”











As we sway smothered in blood shed,

Neither men nor nature know the pains of red.

Midst reign of terror, guns and smoke,

We lay like the extinct.


‘I’ – A symbol of love to this world –

the color of bloodshed, I do have.

I am a weeping rose;

Weeping to the depths of my heart

to see the unearthly, eerie

turn of ‘shoot to death’.


Earth: ‘mother to all’

is pained and wounded.

To see her children perishing in pain.


If Love be your core and

Peace be within you,

Lying somewhere unheard to, within the self;

Stamp down that gun,

to turn smoke into love.

Be a symbol of LOVE!


Love Can turn Ashes to Flourishing Soil.

Love Can Heal.

Love Can Cherish Peace.

Love can build an EARTH.

Her love is like

an Island in life’s ocean

vast and wide

A peaceful, quiet shelter

From the wind, the rain, the tide.


Tis bound on the north by Hope,

By patience on the West,

By tender counsel on the south

And on the East by West.


Above it like a beacon light

Shine Faith, and Truth, and Prayer;

And through the changing scenes

of life

I find a heaven there.
