In my coaching practice, writing is a tool used in the form of journalling and as a means to creating life visions for career and business plans. I use this for clients and also for myself. In my creative writing, I write about an imagined past from a rich Guyanese legacy, alongside the imagery and vernacular of my life as born and raised in 1980’s London. These and other contrasting aspects, resonate in my poetry and fiction where I draw on my emotional responses to the tension between familial relationships in unfamiliar environments. I write to the tell the stories that are otherwise hidden from mainstream view and I write to inspire people to listen and relate to one another.
Some examples of my writing…
Performance review: Travelling Light
It’s only one sky, but this sky felt different —
Black to nearly blue
like, sun soaked melanin.
One incandescent sprite
blinking among many
and the Gods, peace pipe smoking.
Tropic insects chorus a twilight
symphony, as home birds settle
on a land of many waters,
a nation of six races, my
first time home.
Radio interview and poetry performance at London Literature Lounge with Anjan Saha
his back to my searching eye in cosmopolitan throng at city tube station
dark curly hair almost shoulder length his Celtic frame leaning
an iPod on I wonder what he’s listening to and casually ask as much
Groove Armada he says mobile phones pressed to ears
he had me as I tumbled into the emphasis on the groove
