My first encounter with the lovely and gifted Persian Poetess came weeks before I actually heard her poetry.
It's an interesting story that came about because I subscribe to my friend Justin's YouTube Channel. Most people know Justin as DragonBlogger. He blogs about technology, gaming, blogging, making money online and he's also known for his poetry (through his widely popular random Twitter Poetry Game). I get an email alert whenever Justin uploads a new video.
To make a long story short, I was pleasantly surprised when I went over to YouTube to watch his latest video and saw this game review called Infamous 2 – narrated by none other than Persian Poetess! I normally don't pay much attention to anything related to gaming, but this game review is an exception. Just take a look at this video, and you'll see why I was immediately impressed with the clarity and professionalism of her voice.
About The Poetry
Days later, I went over to see if the Persian Poetess was a guest blogger on DragonBlogger and I discovered that in addition to being a guest blogger, the Persian Poetess also has her very own blog called Trending Poetry. Here's what it says on her About page:
I am a humble college student eager to pursue a career that has anything to do with writing or script producing. When I’m not working on poetry, I’m writing gaming articles on Dragonblogger.com or filming video reviews on entertainment products for Amazon.com. Regardless of where I end up, as long as I can continue being a slave to my passions, a day at any millstone will make me happy :).
Oh and if you’re wondering…yes I’m a bona fide Persian and proud of it!
Poetry Based On Twitter Trends
This very unique blog consists of written poems that are based on trending topics on Twitter. She also records an audio version of each poem, which brings us (finally) to the Oprah poem called Queen of Joy and Jubilation and part of the backstory for this poem is that:
Much of the poem is sort of a homage to the impact she has left on this world through her show and voice.
I'm a huge fan of Oprah Winfrey and I also enjoy the unique twist of combining classic poetry with modern social media. She has a rare talent with just a touch of the exotic that makes Trending Poetry a blog you must plan to visit soon.
