''Local Poet Reads to The World
by Henry Burt Stevens
www.authorsden.com
09/06/2005


Local poet, Henry Burt Stevens, is poetry reading to the world. What ever much, or little, he has to say is being offered by video from his own server, to whom ever wants to view and listen; wherever they are and whenever they want. The current offering is "Current Insanity 2005", a 14 minute video of his various poems about war. VIEW HERE


Henry offers his poetry as unlimited poetry sharing. Research showed him that "poetry" was the ninth keyword on the internet, the first being "sex". The internet has also taught Henry that free is the eventual distribution model. Free started with Netscape, followed by many others, and most recently exploited with great success by Google. Henry's conclusion is that poetry will be mostly free in the future. Sure, the academic poetry will continue as before, but the access available to poets and readers will make large use of the free model. (My hottest poem to date is included below.)


This video, "Current Insanity 2005" is being submited to Google Video, a process that takes just a little while. It will be offered there along with my first video, "Top 13" and a video made at Authors Fest held at Books-A-Million.


All my poetry is for sharing. Enjoy............... s/henry

My wish
by Henry Burt Stevens
07/10/2005


my wish: to only build
sandcastles in readers'
minds, maybe their hearts


my poetry is free, only
air mixed with vibrations
wafting the ears


playing briefly with their
minds and looking for
a smile, a nod, perhaps a wink


other poets can have
the contests heaping glory
and riches on the winners


the fine literary publications
prestigious reading exposure
writers' retreats and summer camps


leave me the internet
the new Google Video, unlimited
poem sharing and chaos

You're way ahead of me with this medium, Henry. But I am glad for the internet because it has allowed me to make friends with people such as yourself. Thank you for this. Love and peace.
