Pear flavoured marshmallows from Gareth James, the chocolatier in Tynemouth were sampled during this morning’s Poetry with Friends session at Whitley Bay Library. The jury is still out on the mallows (sorry Gareth) but we love your chocolates and hot drinks!
The theme of today’s session was Otherness. It was a tough one but we managed to chat about:
I’m Nobody! Who Are you by Emily Dickinson
Discipline by George Herbert
I Would Like to be a dot in a painting by Miro by Moniza Alvi
The Grey Eye by Martin Figura
The Mystery of Pain by Emily Dickinson
Death by George Herbert
Every Day Life by Svetislav Stefanovich
To my Master in Zen by James Kirkup
The Quest for Tropical Paradise by Sheree Mack
Night by William Blake
Full Walnut Moon by Jen Hadfield
Corpse by Kirstin Luckins
What an interesting couple of hours!
