This is a group of poetry lovers that meets monthly to share poems. Some of us are poets, and some are not. We started with an emphasis on mystical poetry, and then yielded to the position that, at heart, all poetry is inherently mystical.

The emphasis here is on reading, not commentary or critique. While many of us are writers, the group is not about writing either. It's an opportunity to experience poems read aloud, and to cultivate our own voices through reading poetry.

The format is informal: We each bring a few poems, by ourselves or others, and take turns reading to the group. Sometimes we choose seasonal themes, but all poems are welcome and appreciated.

Anyone is welcome, and we hope to see you...if you're at all curious, come and give it a try!

We're 69 Poetry lovers
