Bajan poet Robert R. Gibson - known to me personally as “De Luuuv Man” (as a member of VOICES: Barbados Writers’ Collective) and one of my writing protégés, but now familiarly called “PassionPoet or Passion, for short” – has grown as a writer. Here, as this performance poet spreads his wings internationally @ an Open Mic session in Boston, the musicians really feel his expression too, as they join in with a groovy reggae beat.
Gibson, who’s working on his first anthology, ”enjoys painting sensual images with his words, leading his audience into a sensory experience.” However, this award-winning (NIFCA) young writer does point out, “Passion is not always about sex…[it] is anger, sorrow, enthusiasm…”
In his blog, Poet: Whispers, this devoted family man offers his poetic musings on the page.
