  2. Thanks for interviewing Poetic Sunshyne. She is an inspiration. I have been especially enjoying her piece on Bzoo radio that goes “I write because…” puntuated with sighs. I am always very still when I listen to that and I’m touched by its beauty.

  3. Peace Will,

    Thank you for that soulful interview with Poetic SunShyne. She is a great inspiartion to me and a consider her a great sistah-friend. My favorite by Poetic is “I Be”. The sistah is an old spirit coming to bless and educate the new. I thank Poetic for sharing a piece of your soul with us.

    Peace
