Poetry workshop…

I ran a poetry workshop today under the umbrella of Michaela and Pauline’s ‘Blue Sky Craft Workshops‘. We spent the morning talking about/reading/writing poetry, and this afternoon people are creating art from words.

I very much enjoyed my bit this morning- it is a real indulgence to immerse myself in words, in good company. The food was good too!

It reminded me of how important it is to create- but also to create together- sharing our stories and experiencing the vulnerability of exposing our skills to the scrutiny of others.

I asked people to write three lines, then talk about them, and they wrote some lovely things- which I will not recreate without permission.

I wrote this, sat for a quiet moment in the mess of our music room/study-

Kind clutter gathers

All dusty

In this mess

Called love
