Bio: Hello and welcome (:-)) I am Myke Kofi, a lyrical poet who resides in the Wylde Green area of Birmingham. It's also the "Heart of England", U.K. So, I too write from the heart! Since June 2015, I am honoured to be poet laureate for AstroStyle.com. I am truly inspired by the endless possibilities offered by people, places and Mother Nature (the elements; plants and trees). Also, I am inspired by the visual arts; music and wordsmiths extraordinaire [Shakespeare; Hafeez and Rumi]! And of course, global news. I read and listen to a lot of poetry. Possibly much more than I've written. Be on the radio, on the London underground (tube/subway); every where and when. Street people and graffiti inspire me. I tend to write in snippets and couplets. Often, the lines appear as if out of nowhere (like when I'm shaving my face early in the morning)! So I have always have a capture tool handy: pen and post-it notes; pencil and crayons, and my portable tablet - just in case inspiration strikes. But mostly, poetry is "craft +graft". Lots of re-iteration behind-the-scenes. Above all, I seek to share my poetic observations of the every day. So, welcome (:-)) P.S. Myke Kofi has a BSc (Hons) in Pharmacy and Masters of Science Degree in Pharmacognosy. He is an active member of the Royal Pharmaceutical Society of Great Britain and he is a friend of cultural institutions e.g. the Barber Institute of Fine Arts and Writing West Midlands.
