Sunday Nite Poetry Chill & Thrill!
This was our 1st Poetry Nite @ the Avant Garde 2434! Met some new people, heard some new voices, got inspired! I made soup for the 1st one, and Diane made some hot soup for the 2nd one. Looks like this is gonna be a regular Sunday nite gig! Yay!
At the last one, we all read a Pablo Neruda poem, and some of us read our own poems inspired by the great poet. I sent everyone home with a 10-word Vintage Slang poetry challenge. Next Sunday is gonna be the berries! :)
When I posted the event on FB I used a photo of Mae West with a quote of hers: "Ten men waiting for me at the door? Send one of them home, I'm tired." haha! I love her! I started reading about her, and was fascinated by some of things that I learned about her! Read this from start to finish, you'll be a fan, if not already:
