World Poetry Day was Celebrated in a New Way: Poeticine
Will Foskey and Ayana Eintou founded a growing Twitter Poetry Movement.
- New York, NY (1888PressRelease) March 25, 2011 - Twitter has brought the world together in ways even the founders never imagined. Celebrating "World Poetry Day" is one of those ways. This past Monday (March 21st) was "World Poetry Day" and it was celebrated in venues around the world, as well as on Twitter (#WorldPoetryDay). An excellent opportunity for poets, Will ( @ ) Deshair Foskey and Ayana ( @ ) PoeticHeroin to introduce the world to their growing Twitter poetry movement: Poeticine dot
Poeticine is healing poetry, written exclusively on Twitter in 140 characters or less, including the hashtag (#Poeticine). It started off as a way for Will ( @ ) Deshair Foskey to heal his followers in a way that music can dot "I realized that many of my followers would tweet musical lyrics as a way to mirror their current feelings," said Mr dot Foskey, who previously made a success for himself as a Music Industry journalist dot "I would read tweets, look through timelines and analyze what a person was going through dot Then I would write something more fitting to their situation dot I wanted to give them hope, to heal them of their despair dot "
Ayana ( @ ) PoeticHeroin Eintou joined the Poeticine movement a month later. However, she and Will have been sharing poetry between one another for five years. Will introduced it to Ayana, and from that moment on, followers on both sides witnessed in awe of their combined poetic talents. "Poeticine is literature life to me," said Ms. Eintou, an aspiring novelist and poetic threat. "Its existence helps me to thrive in this world full of artistic pleasures. As a woman, I've learned to embrace the sensual energy that surrounds me daily. As a poet, I've learned to create visuals with my words. I have discovered my tolerance and climatic boundaries with every Poeticine tweet posted."
Thanks to amazing supporters of Poeticine which have requested poetry at all times of the day, their "Poetic Fix" as many of them coined their requests to be, ( @ ) Deshair and ( @ ) PoeticHeroin created, a first of its kind show on Twitter called "The Poeticine Hour". The Poeticine Hour is a weekly show on Monday night, from 8:30pm to 9:30pm, Eastern Time. "Ayana and I love poetry to its very foundation," said Mr. Foskey. "We are very much aware of its power and will never take it lightly. We appreciate all the comments and retweets we receive. The House of Poeticine will make a long lasting impression on poetry. Happy World Poetry Day."
