What we're about

This is a group for anyone who loves poetry and conversation. It is about being in the moment, philosophy, inspirational words and writing pieces. I have found a book called, "The Poetry of Presence--An Anthology of Mindfulness Poems" edited by Phyllis Cole-Dai and Ruby R. Wilson which can be a guide. It contains a wonderful collection of poems from ancient times (Rumi) to modern times (Wendell Barry and Mary Oliver).
Each person will bring a poem from anywhere that they have found inspirational and "in the moment" whatever that moment brings. Whoever wants to read or perform their piece may do so. Discussion is welcome. Come out and meet new people of depth and soul. Tea provided and snacks to be pot-luck. Location needed.
