KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) – For many years, Rhea Carmon has discovered her reply to life’s issues via poetry.
Paradoxically, this wordsmith is a math instructor who views life via the lens of poetry and numbers.
“It simply is sensible to me,” Carmon mentioned. “Poetry and numbers make sense. The opposite stuff doesn’t, and also you’ll hear it in a few my poems, however that’s how I present my love.”
Recognized by her stage title, “Rhea Sunshine,” she guarantees to be simply that: a ray of sunshine for all who take heed to her hearts cries via her lyrical genius.
All through Carmon’s poetic profession, she has revealed four poetry books and strives to teach youth in the neighborhood, as Knoxville’s first African-American poet laureate. Beginning this spring, Carmon will deliver the Knoxville Speaks Youth Poetry Initiative to coach East Tennessee youth grades 7-12 within the artwork of poetry.
