6:45 p.m.–9 p.m.
Bring a brown bag for dinner at 6:45. The poetry begins at 7:30.
Led by John Morris
Poetry fills me with joy
and I rise like a feather in the wind.
Poetry fills me with sorrow
and I sink like a chain flung from a bridge.
But mostly poetry fills me
with the urge to write poetry.
From Billy Collins, The Trouble with Poetry
Poet John Morris will lead us in an occasional night of poetry. Bring 10 copies of a poem you have written or that someone else has written. During our time together each of us will read our poems and share why and how they speak to us. We’ll explore together the images and structure of the poems and their potential meanings.
