“Improv” – Robert Gibson aka ‘Passion’ (Barbados)

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.

In Barbados, Robert is quite supportive of Open Mic sessions like Iron Sharpen Iron events, Citrus Book & Poetry Night and those of the National Cultural Foundation.

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.
