Temple Poetry Reading

To begin, I'd like to say that I loved the reading.  I felt that the poet's chosen were perfect for the readings and that many of the pieces were brilliant.  The reading itself was a great experience.  It really helped me to feel the poetry through the poet's eyes (metaphorically) and get a better understanding of what the poet wanted to convey.  Their speech, speed, diction and multiple other factors all played into how their work was presented and how powerful the pieces truly were.  I loved hearing the poems as compared to reading the poems and that fact that these readings were from the author's mouths made it all the better.  I felt that the entire reading went over great and was a tremendous success.
