POETRY KARAOKE

To celebrate National Poetry Month, let's get together with a slightly different format. Bring a poem or two or three to share. We'll put them all in a pile, and we'll each pick from it for something to read. There will also be some pre-selected poems available. Friends are welcome. Refreshments will be served. If you can contribute $5 to help defray costs, that would be wonderful.

Join or login to comment.

    Wonderful evening, classic to contemporary poems and voices, many thanks to all who participated. From Mary Oliver: "Poetry is prayer, it is passion and story and music, it is beauty, comfort, it is agitation, declaration, it is thanksgiving. Some poems are radiant and oracular, some are quiet and full of tenderness, like a letter written to a friend. Often poetry is the gate to a new life. Or, sometimes the restoration of the old world gone. It brings new thoughts or the welcome remembrance of old ones. It offers simple pleasure, complicated joy, and even, at times healing."

    Thanks to all who participated last night, and I think it may have been our best session ever. Great poems, wonderful readings, and a good dose of laughter. So glad to have shared it with everyone.

    Hope to be able to join you tomorrow, I have a new grand-baby (3 days old) so predictability is a bit sketchy these days!

      I am too. I love to hear poetry and to write it. Hearing it inspires me to write. Writing inspires me to take some time listen to my heartsongs and to others'. Looking forward to meeting some kindred spirits
