Introducing Jar of Poetry Episode 1

Welcome to Jar of Poetry. This is a new series I’m having fun with on my YouTube channel. Basically, I have a big old jar filled with post-it notes as my co-star. On each note is the title of a poem I’ve written. I reach in, pull out a note, and then perform that poem as spoken word poetry.

It’s a lot of fun and there have been some close calls where I had to search deep in my brain for the words while performing the poetry.  Each video I perform 3 poems.

Check out the first video I did below. Thank you!

Happiness and Harmony,

Jace

I appreciate and love my friends around the globe.

I learn from them.
I share with them.
I grow with them.

I felt inspired to write a poem to express how I feel. It’s my version of a virtual hug.
