Poetry Reading
with Fred Whitlock

Tuesday 5 March 2024

2:00pm - 2:45pm


on Zoom:

There's something very calming on a nervous-system level about sitting in a group (even on Zoom!) and listening to poems. Poetry is a form of story-telling that allows the poet to put thoughts and experiences into words that may not be easily expressed otherwise. 


Bring any poems that you would like to read to the group, whether they rhyme or are free verse, and either by favorite authors or verses that you yourself have written.  Or just come to listen!!   Our fearless leader, Fred, usually has one or more new poems for us each time that we meet, and we love hearing his poems.
