Miami Poet Blows Up Instagram and Wynwood
Recently, uplifting poetry, written on a vintage typewriter font, has been trending on Instagram. Also the pictures of various other poems by the same author, spray painted in the sidewalks of Wynwood, has also been a source for a “gram” on social media. The poems have the power to stop the rushing crowds in Wynwood and prompt them to take a moment, to reflect and then even share via social media. Without much research, I learned that the author of these trending and thought provoking write ups is a Miami-Based poet that goes by the name of R.M Drake (@rmdrk on Instagram) With over 500k followers, the poetry of this local talent reaches the masses. He also has a great following on his Etsy Shop with over 2000 sales and 1000+ admirers. Prices of his framed poetry range for $10 to $25. Here is a few of R.M Drake’s favorite poem’s sent to us by the artist himself. Check out his poetry . Picture above courtesy of @Cynlagos on Instagram.
Some of R.M. Drake’s Personal Favorites
This one in particular strikes a cord with me because I can remember a time and place where I have felt this way. And have even created a body of artwork based on this exact feeling. To illustrate the moment: I remember praying for this person that I yet did not know but felt existed and needed my well wishes. There is a feeling of attachment when reading something that you can relate to and this does it for me. For that reason, this is my favorite poem by R.M. Drake.
