More About the Author
Laura is a sophisticated poet, spoken word recording artist and radio host /producer who has always pushed the boundaries of poetry, pioneering the creation and the depth of a contemporary poetic style, melting musical vibes, breathtaking images and inspirational universal messages.
She sees Poetry as the exact reflected image of the soul, the representation of the inner parallel life. Poetry, to Laura, is much more than just a literary genre, more than writing or reading, it is the essence of our "being human", a condition, a form of artistic expression, involving mind, heart and soul, a flow of inspirational waves, words, sounds, emotions, memories, it's instinctive and universal, it's about colors and nuances of life events.
Laura started writing at the age of 13, at the same time when deeper and selected reading started... The first book she ever read, when she was 7, The Little Prince, by Antoine De Saint-Exupéry is still, to this very day, the one book she always recommends anyone to read, at any age.
"Sharing" is definitely one of Laura's goals, and by sharing she does not only mean promote-spread the word about her own writing. She founded Verses In Motion in 1987 as an offline cultural group based in London, a few years later the web groups were created on FB, LinkedIn and Twitter. Today Verses In Motion web circles are followed by thousands of people.
Laura strongly believes that Artists must be messengers of love, peace, spirituality and activism in all fields of social awareness and she makes sure that all artists, at VIM groups, find a special, safe place where they can meet, share, inform, inspire. This concept is also what Verses in Motion Show on GetYourz Radio, is all about.
Laura loves reading poetry. Alda Merini, Pablo Neruda, Sylvia Plath, Charles Baudelaire, Emily Dickinson, E.E. Cummings, Giovanni Pascoli, Giacomo Leopardi, Dante Alighieri, are among her favorite.
Laura writes about life, love, soul journeys, conscious and unconscious dreams, immersed in music.
Music is essential to her creations, Laura's recent work is an EP of poetry in music, "Absolute ° Gravity" (Ultrasonic Music Germany), out now on all major digital stores, wonderful collaboration with Musicians/Producers Cass Ferre and Tom Cloverfield.
"Words that should always stay with a poet and with all artists are: courage, humility, awareness, creative expression, support, respect, open heart and soul"
Laura LME, forever a Peaceful Warrior!
