We had a fabulous night last night celebrating all things Poetry at Cafe Bliss. I will be posting more thanks and reviews, for now a BIG shout out to all the little poems you shared.
We had a Poetry Take Away at the World Poetry Day Event last night in Worcester, the feast of words were provided by Local, National and International writers who submitted 10 line poems from a call out in February.
We had over 71 Little Poems finding there way to us, I was not able to include every poet, over 46 poets submitted work. For the event itself the audience’s appetite was the only limit and I am sure there were plenty of people waking up this morning and reading your words again for Breakfast!
Thank you, your generosity is appreciated and your poems have found new homes, perhaps to become cherished treasure or to rest in a pocket on a bed of receipts, we can only imagine. I have had some lovely feedback from people appreciating your words. The POWER of poetry very much alive!
Gratitude to all poets who took part, I hope to send emails, there may not be time for personal notes – it may just be a link to this post – so
THANK YOU (yes! I am shouting, joyfully), for giving us your time and words.
