Poem-in-Your-Pocket Day 2018

To celebrate Poem-in-Your-Pocket day this year, the local branch of my county library had a reading of short poems. The featured readers were members of The Cool Women Poets critique and performance group and a local middle school student. The Cool Women totally lived up to their name, and the student did a wonderful job reading one poem and then singing another — a born performer!

Members of the audience were also invited to participate. I read Ted Kooser’s “Skater” and, since it was a local crowd, some haiku I penned on Haiku Poetry Day the week before at a well-known nearby environmental preserve.

It was a creatively stimulating event and a very pleasant way to pass an hour among lovers of poetry.  :- )
