Poetry Reading

I really enjoyed the poetry reading on Tuesday. I was disappointed that I had to leave early to go to work. I have always enjoyed going to readings because I find that poetry is meant to be heard. Hearing poetry read out loud brings new meaning to words and phrases that would not have been received just by reading it. I really enjoyed everyone's energy; both the readers and the audience. I also enjoyed the variety of different types of poems read aloud. I appreciated everyone's honesty with their poems, and their comfort in reading them out loud to a group of people they do not know. I think it shows strength to be able to do that. Having a reading was a great idea and hopefully it continues in the future. I really thought it was a success.
