A total of 5 participants attended the organisational meeting. We discussed the 2014 calendar; we will meet the second Tuesday of each month all year except for June when we will meet on the third, on June 17th; Norma will be away on a trip.
Each participant presented their preference in terms of what they hope to get from the Poetry meetings. We agreed on (loosely) following a theme each month as presented below:
March 11=women; April 6=Spring; May 13=Mother; June 17= Father; July 8th=Summer; Aug. 12=Travel; Sept. 9=Memories; Oct.14=Autumn; Nov.11=Appreciation; Dec.9=Family.
Today, the hostess presented two French love poems in anticipation of Feb.14th.
We also invite participants to contribute a ”GEM” at each meeting. For example, today a GEM was already contributed by a participant who told us to look at the web under: Poetry Forum. A gem is an invitation to stretch our personal knowledge of poetry and a gift to others.
Periodicall, we will welcome a mini-lesson on one aspect of writing as we discovered we were all fans of wordsmithing. We look forward to March11th…
