Poetry Reading

The most recent poetry reading at Creek Kitchen was a lot of fun for me. I read a poem I'd written that seemed to fit in with the theme set for the night, transitions. After reading it I was explaining the form to the other participants. One of the regulars, a guy from Taiwan, is a professional guitarist. He looked it over and said, "This one could be set to music." We all talked about it, and our Taiwanese friend took out his guitar, played some "mood music," and one of the other guys (an American) read the poem again, fitting it in with the music. It was, to me, a lot of fun!

This was the last session at Creek Kitchen. We will be moving to a new venue for the next session. Keep a lookout here. I'll definitely post the new location. And I will look forward to seeing you there!
