PA Meeting March 2016

There were a dozen of us upstairs at the Bay Tree to hear each other’s poems, some more on Orpheus and Eurydice that hadn’t been heard or perhaps written last month.  Our poet of the month was Kaaren Whitney who began her set with a wonderfully clear rendition of her well-loved poem I Wear Lipstick So People Can Hear My Poems.  Other poems concerned people and nature; trees, childhood, our genetic inheritance, birthing and giving up smoking.

Theme for Poetry Cafe reading at Festival of Suffolk Poetry in May

For those of you not at the January meeting, after much discussion we decided that the theme for our reading at this year's Festival of Suffolk Poetry would be the Greek myth of Orpheus and Eurydice.

    I opened all my bottles
    Hoping one might tempt
    Your almost maiden diffidence
