Constantina Clark, Ubiquity University’s Dean of Students is an international award winning poet who won two awards for her poetry at the Artists Embassy International 23rd Dancing Poetry Festival in San Francisco and the William Faulkner Literary Society in New Albany, Mississippi.
The Artists Embassy International 23rd Dancing Poetry Festival was a showcase for prize winning poetry and visual art partnered with inspired dance and is unique in the United States in presenting poetry and dance as a unified art form.
The William Faulkner Literary Society based in New Albany, Mississippi, every year honors their native son, William Faulkner by hosting a literary competition where artists have the opportunity to showcase their literary talents, in the same vein as William Faulkner when he noted, “The aim of every artist is to arrest motion, which is life, by artificial means and hold it fixed so that a hundred years later, when a stranger looks at it, it moves again, since it is life.”
Constantina’s poetic works chose to examine aspects of relational love, both in this life and beyond, in order to invite the reader to enter into the human experience, in an intimate way.
Prior to reading any poetic work of art, it’s helpful to consider Heinrich Zimmer’s words: “Indeed this is the characteristic of a true poet: That his word creates indisputable reality, that it directly summons and unveils real things. His word does not speak reality: It creates reality.” Constantina has given us permission to share her poetry with you and encourages you to move within the rhythm of the intimacy of relational experience, an indisputable reality for most of us, and to deeply enjoy her work.
