Trance Poet


Each poem peels back a veil

that hides a link between

the heartís sentience

and natureís secret beauty.


The poet approaches

shamanic trance

with words and rhythm

then returns into mind and body,

tree trunk or sea;

transforms the same words

into spiritual paths;

transmutes meanings

into ecstasy.

Just a note to recommend  Penn Kemp's Trance Dance Form - a sound opera


I have seen this work performed in Parry Sound and it is awesome!  Penn Kemp and Anne Anglin have collaborated for years on Penn's sound poetry where more than one voice is needed. 


Brenda Muller is a cellist from Sutton who accompanies the reading and sounding of the two voices masterly.


Wave Weir's movements become expressions of Penn's voice and emotions, multiplying them a thousand times (if the expression 'a picture is worth a thousand words' works that way).  The three forms (poetry, music and dance) weave together and are truly entrancing!
