Encouraged by Dr. Mehmet Yildiz, I decided to post some of my poetry on the Illumination You Tube channel. Fortunately for me I was able to enlist the musical composition skills of my brother Steven Antonelli and the visual compilation skills of my nephew William Antonelli.

I have always loved to read aloud, so it was fun for me to record my voice on my smartphone app. I then forwarded the recording to Steven who created an original composition to accompany each poem. William then found still photographs and brief video, which with proper attribution, created a seamless collaboration.

I would encourage everyone to try making a You Tube video, based around your poems or short pieces. Sending the link to your friends, family, or followers on Medium is an enjoyable way to receive encouraging feedback.

Let me know when you have posted your You Tube videos so I can check them out! Below are the links to the four I have posted so far.
